After reading the reviews on this hotel, i didn't know what to expect. But, we were thoroughly pleased with our choice. This hotel was one of the first built at the beginning of the boom in Puerto Peñasco. Despite its age, it is clean and comfortable. Keep in mind, this is Mexico,...not the US. Hotels aren't perfect here,..at least not... More

The Hotel was very basic. The toilet would not stop flushing and the bathroom door hinge was loose. You had to lift up on the door to close it. They used to have a small restaurant, but not anymore. The best feature of the hotel is its proximity to its sister property, Playa Bonita. You can cross the road and... More

Front desk service is not the best. Rooms were clean, but the carpets were dirty. I paid for an ocean view, I got a partial ocean view with pool view. Room is roomy though. TV was an old school TV. No ice machines, but bags of ice were free. They only provided two towels. Called for more, but took awhile... More

I booked this hotel for the St. Valentine's week end. When we got to the room my wife found the balcony sliding door lock just hanging on the door. There was NO HOT WATER and the TV cable/dish had just been disconected. During the Winter Olympics. I gave my complaints to the front desk clerk but when I call Expedia... More

Although not exactly on the beach, Laos Mar is well situated, being close to both the Sandy Beach resorts and the Old Port waterfront area. Service and staff attitudes could be improved, as the desk staff barely seemed appreciative of our business. We were mistakenly sent by staff to two already-occupied rooms but Room 116, at last, seemed very clean... More

I've stayed at Laos Mar several times over the years, and have always found it to be pleasant and enjoyable as long as you don't let the "little" frustrations get to you. The hotel sits 300 steps (I counted) from the water across Sandy Beach. The rooms on the top floors that face the water, and not all rooms do,... More
