Hotel Playa Del Karma, pretty middle of the road. The receptionists were all very friendly. The grounds were clean. The rooms were a bit small, may have just seemed that way because of the big bed. A/C was a crappy old window unit, it worked okay but took a long while to get the room cold. The bed was as hard a rock, I woke up sore every morning. Our first night the pillows were the same, thick and firm, kind of like sleeping on a basketball. We did get new pillows for the remaining nights so it wasn't that big of a deal. There was a light yellow powder that got over all our stuff, not sure what it was or where it came from. No TV sucked, thankfully we had a computer full of movies to go to sleep to. Some call the hotel quiet, I would not. There is a church across the street that rings their bell for what I'm guessing is 15 o clock(lots and lots of dongs), around sunrise. There's also a loud dog on the property right next door that likes to bark. And the electronic safe's beeping can be heard from the next room. The pool is super small too. Cool fresh towel art and free filtered water were probably the biggest pluses. They do not have parking, you must park on the street. Every night I went to sleep fearing that our car would get broken into or sideswiped, never happened but we did have to park up 2-3 blocks away sometimes. I could not get a wifi signal in our room. Over all, pretty typical for a small, cheap, semi out of the way place. That being said we will probably try somewhere else next time. Hotel Playa del Karma wasn't bad, but nothing special.
