Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed there April 21st and 22nd 2013. The town was dead. I think we were the only tourists in town. The daytime front desk person was nice and helpful. The late afternoon and nighttime front desk lady was cold, nearly rude. We had to ask them for the air conditioning and TV remote. They weren't too happy to hand them out.
Room 217 had a nice ocean view and breeze. We had to keep the front door open to get the breeze to come in. At nighttime we had to close all the doors because the surf pounding outside was too noisy to sleep. They did have AC which was a must with the doors closed.
Absolutely no artwork on the walls of the room.
Our room cost 1,000 Pesos per night. It was supposed to include breakfast but the restaurant was closed when we were there. The front desk person said breakfast was not included.
There are much better bargains available in town. This hotel is over-rated. It suffers from what appears to be "absentee ownership."

Room Tip: Ocean side if you can handle the pounding surf.

Recently remodeled, this is the prime beach location in Barra de Navidad. The sunset views are fantastic and the added attraction of Breakfast Included at Banana's Restaurant is a real plus. Get a table on the terrace and watch the world go by. Hotcakes, Egg Dishes and great service. Fresh squeezed juice, the works. Then down to the beach or the pool to spend a lazy day in the Barra Sun.

This was the third time that I have stayed at the Hotel Barra De Navidid in the past year. This past October they were in the throws of remodeling the beach front rooms so the place was somewhat of a mess. However I must say thta they warned me when I made the reservation and other than the construction mess outside the room there were no other issues. This time the beach front rooms were all finished and I stayed in them with a small tour group I was guiding. The new rooms are simple but tastefully done and much improved from before. The staff is always friendly and accommodating even when my group got up at 4:30am to go bird watching! It is a very nice hotel with a great location and "Don Ramon's" restaurant right accross the street has very good food.

Room Tip: Go for the beach front rooms, the patio view rooms don't really have a view and have not yet bee...

Nice hotel, very clean, reasonable price. They have remodeled the two or three rooms closest to the reception...ask for one of those. The ground floor rooms have the best ocean views, as you can sit out on the lawn. Great free breakfast. Nearby Isadora's Restaurant has good seafood, Lucy's Bar has live entertainment.

The staff was very accomodating. The courtyard and lobby are mindblowingly tranquil. My ocean view room, on the ground floor, was awesome. The Bed was (kind of ) soft. But sleepable. GREAT AIR CONDITIONING!! Nice shower. Big screen vizio TV. Free breakfast at Banannas. The beach is STEPS away, The pool was Bathtub warm. Everything is steps away. PLUS A promotional rate of $860 ;peses. About $82 USD.

Room Tip: An ocean view (vista del Mar) on the planta baja. (lowest level)

My friends and I went there for Spring break. It's an excellent place to stay. Safe, clean, near all the town shops and cafes, beach front. The ocean right in front of it is awesome. The pool is really nice and the view is amazing. Plus they just remodeled it and it looks great!

Room Tip: all rooms are really good, it depends on if you like beach front. they are all remodeled.
