This place is one of the cheapest places in Isla Verde. We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was ok, but not really clean. We wanted to book daytrips but the reception was really unhelpful. The only nice person was Patricia who finally helped us book one excursion. The breakfast is just bagels, fruit, coffee and cereal. Not much... More

A lovely looking restaurant right on the water with many outdoor tables. Two of us had mofongo (one with seafood and the other with shrimp)- both dishes had a sticky, doughy rice which was terrible. The shrimp carbonara was good. Service was slow.

Conveniently located, didn't even need to rent a car. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, the food is good. You might be taking cold showers, otherwise, you will be happy. (Even the cold showers weren't too bad) The beach here is beautiful.

We actually stayed here last year October celebrating a birthday. The rooms are clean and the service was friendly. There isn't much of a breakfast mostly toast and jam with coffee. The dinner menu is nice and food was good,a bit pricey . We didn't have much of a view of the beach but it definitely is walking distance. The... More

The food was great and the customer service was a 5 stars. I stayed for seven days and the weather was great. The atmosphere there was great and their service was great. I could stay there for 365 days a year. I have been coming there since the 1970's . They have made different changes but the customer service has... More

Friendly staff and employees.They have comfortable bed and pillows, small bathroom but was clean, clean sheets, towels and floors, but some dust in air conditioner, behind the TV, around picture frames and in the ceiling fan. Big problem with the parking. Only a... More

Granted, we stayed only for one night, but the customer service was superb, and they allowed us to check in early without charging us. I really loved the style of the room, which was maybe on the small side, but it had so much character. The view, once you step outside the door, is breathtaking, given that the hotel is... More

LOCATION: Hotel La Playa is in a good location if you want to be near the beach in Isla Verde, as it’s down the end of a back street on a small peninsula and right on the water. I’m not a beach person, so the extent of my beach wanderings was an early walk just after sunrise on my first... More

We had a wonderful experience and kick off to our adventure on the Isla de Encanta. Patricia, Tomas, Julito and the entire staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Access to both beaches with provided small cooler and beach towels was perfect!
