My group and I stayed here because the prices are much more affordable compared to some of the bigger hotels on the beach. We were very pleased with Playa Bonita. The room was nice and clean, each room is guaranteed a view and it is a beach-front hotel. What more could we ask for? The wifi only really works in... More

Enjoyed both time. easy to get along with employees. the air worked fine. all balconies have a great Sea view. I think once the restaurant bar over charged me.... there was nobody else there.

Hotel is clean and the location is great...good parking, good restaurant, friendly helpful staff. Hotel needs a face-lift and a refurb on the rooms. Had great potential but a little out dated. Also, plumbing needs some work, short on towels, needs more trash receptacles...if some TLC was given to this place, it would be wonderful.

Way overpriced for what you get! The rooms were outdated and the staff at the front desk weren't very helpful. They couldn't even point out attractions on the map they gave us. The bar was barely lit at night and was not very inviting. The view from the hotel room was amazing though.

If there are any issues they respond promptly. our ac went out and they had it up and running in less than an 1/2 hour. Security is very active, Housekeeping is... More

We lucked out and got a room that was fully ocean facing (room at the end), not diagonal facing. Hotel was nice, good people, pools were good, Jacuzzi was nice. The morning buffet was really good, but chaotic on Sunday, too many people, not enough food or plates. Rocky Point has changed a lot since I was last there, it... More

This older hotel is beening renovated slowly so things are improving each day, the bathrooms could use updating but hopefully when the dock for the cruise ships are finished this future prospect will improve the local economy. The hotel restaurant provided a breakfast that was hot, plentiful and very enjoyable. The dinner menu was also good and hopefully you will... More

It is an older hotel perhaps a little dated, but very clean, great location, nice size rooms, well kept grounds and pool areas. There are no coffee pots in rooms, but knew this ahead of stay so took one with us. The restaurant had a good menu and the happy hour on the patio is excellent , I would say... More
