We were charged $92 USD... 1 star rooms. Wifi available in hotel lobby only, they had told us that it was available in Restaurant - it was closed. Bar open, but no internet access there. No phones - no TV, and wooden paneling falling off the walls, nice view though. As we sat on 2 aluminum chairs facing the front...

After arriving from Tucson we tried the flashing vacant sign since we were tired. At first it seemed nice being on the beach but the music was loud and early in the morning noise from a nearby construction zone woke us up. As we were leaving some lady was trying to sell us a condo. Next time we will plan...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, after moving out of a previous one (Premier Vacation Club) which was very disappointing. The Fiesta was clean, comfortable beds (2 Q, new mattresses), and a happy experience. We had plenty of hot water and because there are no TV's or phones, it was very quiet. The ocean view patio is very...

I stayed at the Fiesta Real in San Carlos, Mexico for three nights. At first I thought that it was just Mexico, therefore I might be explecting too much, but after seeing some of the other hotels in the area, I realized that I was paying too much money for what I was getting, and the restaurant was way over...

The Fiesta is an old, established hotel in San Carlos. I have been visiting the hotel since I was a child. It is not fancy, but a clean and quiet hotel to enjoy (with a great beach yards from your room). Every room has a terrific view of the ocean, and the food in the restauarant is good too. A...

We stayed at the Fiesta from July 6-13, 2003. At first we thought we had a poor hotel since the room wasn't ready when we arrived (at 3:00 PM). We were first struck by how beautifully maintained the exterior was. Yes, it's old, there's no TV, and no phone, but so what!? Each room has a balcony/terrace with the most...
