My boyfriend and I drove late into Playa Hermosa to stay here, as he had been here years ago on a surf trip. We saw signs for a "special walk-in discount" rate and we went to check them out. We had a guidebook with us that gave us an accurate price range of what we were expecting and they quoted us way over that. Not a good start, but we figured we'd stay the night and find a new place in the morning.
AC worked great in the room. However, we discovered that the shower upstairs somehow flooded our shower with dirty sand and bathwater. The TV in our room went out after a storm and a day or two later, hadn't been fixed. The curtains didn't close all the way and the beds were uncomfortable. Also, no fridges in some of the rooms so you can't store cold food and beer. A can of beer at the bar was sold for about the price of a six-pack. No joke. That was the final straw and we left for a place down the road.
That said, the restaurant staff were awesome and the food made in the kitchen was great. The food (other than the beer) was adequately priced. Also, the pool looked really nice, though we didn't swim in it. I saw a fitness center advertised, but never saw it.
