Probably one of the best cost-effective choices in San Carlos considering the are not big resorts of well-known hotel brands. It looks quite old but it is remodeled, very clean and very well-maintained. Rooms really look like the hotel website pictures. Pools are warm and there is a small section for kids. Beach is close to the hotel and is...

They a nice variety of food, like italian, mexican-american breakfast buffet, seafood and some others. My big problem were the rooms. I mean, it's a HOTEL, that should be its big deal but it's not. Rooms are old and...

Our small group of tourists stopped for the night at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel Resort en route to the Copper Canyon. The luxurious rooms, quiet ambience, spectacular views out over the Sea of Cortez at sunset, and delicious food in the restaurant were enjoyed by all. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. Even better were the huge fresh shrimp dinners...

Old, run down, in terrible shape. Did have a good bed and in a great beach location. Pool was also great. But the hotel main areas and the rooms are just old, shabby and in dire need of renovations. Discoloured grout, cracked sinks, leaky taps, worn, and old. Maybe okay for in and out while traveling, but then it seemed...

What a beautiful hotel, this must have been in its grander days. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is still beautiful, all rooms overlook the beach and the outdoor amenities of the hotel and it is truly a sight to see! The rooms...very nice and nicely appointed, bed was comfortable and the room went down hill from there. The faucet...

Problems started right on arrival, our reservation had been downgraded considerably, and had to show e-mails with the original reservation information to sort it out. Then they sent us to a room in a section of the hotel with no hall lights, you couldn't even see the rooms numbers, let alone find the key card hole (and even though it...

We were charged $8000 pesos for 2 nights in a pretty decent room that turned out to have NO air conditioning and there were fumigators spraying outside everyone's doors. They were wearing masks and no one was warned or told what it was for. We complained at 10 pm that the A/C had been on for 4 hrs and it...
