“This is 6th stay there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I love staying at this hotel. After recent renovations it's nicer then ever. Staying poolside on the beach is great and only 60 miles into Mexico. They have a breakfast buffet for $8, all you can eat!

The rooms are clean and very well maintained and they have a fridge which is important to me, we take lots of water and other drinks with us.

Room Tip: I really wanted 1st floor with slider out to the pool but those rooms have no fridge, thats the only...

We have had breakfast numerous times across the street from this hotel but had never stayed there. After a not so great experience at a local place, we decided to see how much the rooms were at this hotel. We showed up, without a reservation, and we were so happy when the front desk clerk told us they had availability and gave us a great rate. The room that we got reminded us of the condos on Sandy Beach, which is where we usually stay, only much closer to town. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The room had a fabulous ocean view with a small balcony. Overall, we were very happy with this hotel.

The hotel is gorgeous, has a great view of the ocean and the pool and walks right onto the beach.
For what you pay for, the price is inexpensive for the caliber of hotel. The lobby was beautiful and spotless, as was our large, balcony room.

My only complaint was that the shower didn't have a door/curtain, so it sprayed all over the floor and left quite a bunch of water. But if that's the worst that I can say, I think we are good to go!

It was a good place for the price. Not as good as the resorts around it but also not as expensive as those places. We were there for my friend's wedding and it was located in a very good spot close to everything. The room was big and clean. The bathroom was good but the shower didn't have hot water. Room service was fast but they overcharged a little (different than what menu price was). Overall it was good.

Room Tip: I used hotels.com and checked for free cancellations, as well as price matching. Ask for a room with...

My husband and i just got back from an awesome getaway in Penasco. Just like many we were hesitant to go to Mexico because of all the negative news. After searching many quick destinations my heart was stuck on Puerto Penasco. I called the hotel after cancelling my reservation and Francisca Ruiz the reservation clerk and her passion about her towns safety really sold me. When we arrived the room I had booked online was a little far for my disabled knees. She placed us on a lower level without thinking twice. Our stay at rocky point was amazing. The breakfast buffet and the service were amazing. I am never gonna hesitate again. I actually felt safer there than in San Diego where we went in May to afraid to go To RP. Thanks the Penasco del Sol staff! We will be back! And I'm bringing friends and family back. Rocky Point has always been there for Arizona, it's time we give back our vacations and respect to our own beach town Puerto Penasco.

Room Tip: A small fridge in the lower level rooms to us was a necessary item. So if you plan on cold stuff bri...

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry we did not meet your expectations of the guestroom bathroom. We take a deep pride in our resort and have a maintenance crew that could have remedied the drain problem immediately had we been notified and would have ensured your satisfaction. Our guest satisfaction is our top priority so please contact the front desk during your stay with any concerns.

The weekend of October 6 & 7, we held our annual tribute to the local artist and musicians – Jazz and Arts Festival - where the proceeds are donated to charity in which all hotel guest were invited for the show. We are sorry to learn you were dissatisfied and would have been moved you to a room away from the festivities. Please notify me on your return in order to personally ensure you satisfaction.
