A Trip Advisor review brought us to this delightful small hotel for a night prior to boarding our cruise. It is very close to the airport ($13 cab ride) and right on the water. It is a modest hotel but the room was clean and the mattress was VERY comfortable. the staff was responsive and very polite. A great view... More

We had a groupon for this hotel & I'm so glad we did. If you want a nice alternative to a large resort this is it. The rooms were adequate and the staff very attentive. The location was spectacular as its literally steps from the beach and a short walk/drive from restaurants and larger hotels and bars. The best part... More

I stayed there a year ago but just catching up on my reviews. This hotel was nice for my needs. It's not a fancy resort at all, but a calm quiet little retreat which is what I wanted. It's got a beach on each side of the hotel so you can have your pick. I booked an oceanview room and... More

Horrible hotel over rated. The website is a complete lie, the rooms look nothing at all like they show dining area is the same. Staff varies from amazing to garbage. We will never return as hotel guests. The food and are ok. Not sure if we would return for that.

We just got back from our stay at Hotel La Playa and had to share our experience. The hotel is small and quiet. It is older, but updated and clean. It is directly on the water and the beach is a VERY short walk. Linda was wonderful and gave us many helpful suggestions. There is a bus stop close by... More

A business colleague took me to visit La Playa for a long quiet lunch and recommend I stay here on my next trip. With my next trip to the island I booked my 4 days here. Quiet, close to the airport, and a good price with my Jet Blue ticket. I came during the off season so prices were still... More
