My boyfriend and I stayed 2 nights at this luxurious hotel. The La Playa is under new ownership/management and everything is newly remodeled. We were treated like royalty. The staff was informative -- be sure to ask them about the history of this hotel as it was built in 1909. It was great to see the original artwork lining the halls. From our room we could not only hear the surf, but see the waves crashing on the shore. We were lucky to wake up to sunshine and a wonderful breakfast in the dining room overlooking the ocean and courtyard gardens. I can't wait to return!
