We got a great deal on a five night stay so that upped the review a little bit and it is a beautiful location. Also some of the staff members were extremely nice which helped, I just wish there had been more staff. We went in summer so it was off season, but still it seemed so understaffed. The towel...

We stayed in this hotel last year and while a little run down, the staff was friendly and our visit was pleasant. The only reason this review is not getting a "teribble" this year is because the staff was pleasant. We just finished a stay there for this year and it was not so good. When we first checked in,...

I like this hotel, its clean, the beds, however are hard. Could use an upgrade. No ice machines anywhere in hotel, or available anywhere in the hotel. Be aware, if you do not speak Spanish, I did not meet any English speaking members of the staff, but not a big concern.

The reason I'm giving this hotel 2 stars is not based on my expectations but on my experience. This hotel is located on a great location and has so much potential to be a 5 star hotel but it has so many issues. 1) understaffed 2.) lack of ICE machines; none of them were working and you had to go...

The amenities this hotel offers are great, but the accommodations are severely lacking. The rooms are dated. The bathrooms are confusing with the sink/vanity outside in a dressing like area. The towels were dingy, the beds were impossibly hard, there was no clock and not even hotel imprinted paper or pen. They have an alleged key card system where if... More

The front lobby is really nice, However the rooms are in really bad conditions. The shower heads, beds and Tv needs update soon as possible. The beach is really really dirty. However the customer service is the restaurant is really nice

Stayed a night at the plaza, the wait staff was exceptional. The rooms were clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. I liked Joey's pizza in the back lobby area, the bar was simple yet nice and offered great music from the jute box. Nice view of the city and very spacious area.

I stayed here on a work trip and I was honestly appalled by the condition of the rooms. The bed linens have an odd smell to them and did not seem washed. I brought my own pillow case thank God. The towels were a joke! It was like using sandpaper on my face. On top of this the room was... More

My family and I have stayed at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel Resort & Convention Center a few times. Prices are reasonable and the rooms are clean. There is a restaurant in the lobby that has always been happy to prepare my fresh catch of the day.
