Our experience needed to be adjusted from the $100 a night over priced hotel Playa Bonita. They did that accepting the more then 15 problems that we experienced on one night. Unbelievable that people who go there to Rocky Point don't know that this place is over priced and under serviced for world type travel. Siem Reap Cambodia is so... More

Playa Bonita is one of the original hotels in Rocky Point on Sandy Beach. While there are now a number of condo complexes to choose from along the beach, this property continues to be a good choice. It is family owned and operated and the staff is very friendly. The property is getting a bit older, but it is kept... More

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

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 The rooms were outdated and the staff at the front desk weren't very helpful.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.
