Penasco Del Sol Hotel
Ranked #3 of 21 Hotels in Puerto Penasco
Reviewed November 29, 2011

This is a great hotel right on the beach! We enjoyed walking along the beach; however, there are a lot of dead fish on the beach so watch out!
The staff treated us very well and were able to answer all questions we had. We had no language barriers.
The hotel restaurant was good and safe. Parking was easy but not secure.
There isn't much else near the restaurant and any shopping or restaurants will likely have to be driven to.
Overall, loved this hotel as it was nice, clean and comfortable.

Penasco Del Sol is a large resort like hotel on the beach. They have a nice pool area, big beach, full service restaurant, full service bar, security guards, nice lobby, many of the staff are friendly and it is easy to find a bilingual one if you are challenged with Spanish. It is an above average hotel for Rocky Point. It is the nicest of the downtown hotels but not as nice as some of the other full resorts outside of downtown. It is clean. Lots of tile and no carpet which is good for Mexico and at the beach. The location is mixed, it is at the end of Calle 13 which has lots of rather unrefined joints including dive bars, taco stands, nightclubs, liquor stores, marginal hotels, a variety of people watching from the best to the worst. If that's what you want for nightlfe after getting into the spicyness of it all you walk home to something clean and safe. The sound proofing in the rooms is not the best, then with the hard floors, hard furniture and hard partying people I was woken up every night. I never could get connected to the internet, I never found a concierge, car alarms going off woke me up several times. The hotel can get groups in and it is worth knowing if you are comfortable with the current gang. Like the motorcyclists for the Rocky Point Rally. If you enjoy Harley's and Harley people and noise you would have loved it as a great hang out. If however that group is not for you it would be a very bad time to be here. If you are looking for true piece and quiet or traveling with children another location might suit you. Good for adults, good for groups. Overall score 8 out of 10.

Room Tip: Most have pool and/or ocean view out your back deck which is great. Getting the front side of your r...

this is the first time we had ventured by car to "South of the Border". we were being discouraged by all our friends from driving our car down there. They were all worried about the border violence. This trip was the most enjoyable and safest trip we had taken in a while. I found out about Puerto Del Sol via internet browsing and got a great internet deal. The hotel was very easy to find and the driving around there was great. We loved the hotel. It was right on the beach with great views. The pool and spa area was very pleasing to the eyes. Our room was a Master Suite that was actually a 1-bedroom with seperate sitting and eating area. The service we recieved from the employees was wonderful. Especially from the bartenfer in the lobby bar. very friendly and gave us some great tips on placs to go and see. all around a great hotel with a wonderful secure experience. We will definatly drive back for more fun.

Room Tip: ask for a master suite for sure. spacoius and overlooking the beach

From the moment we checked in. This hotel was nice. As we walked toward our Master suite located on the ground floor with a table right next to your room and a beach bed only 10 feet further. We had a great view. The shower water had issue with it being cold. Also they charge you more if you pay in dollars. They charge u the conversion rate the hotel chooses to use. Other then that it was ok hotel. The best Part of the hotel is the massage by Jenny. She is without a doubt the best part of the hotel and I and my fiancee enjoyed all our messages.

The King Suite Ocean facing room was very nice and very clean. The location and the beach are great.

We were practically the only guests in the hotel. The hot water was COLD and we had to call down and have it turned on. There is WiFi in the lobby but not in the rooms. I don't think the "heated pool" is heated. If these things are important to you, you should call and check with the hotel to be sure that they are functional.

Check-in is slow and cumbersome but the staff are very nice. The staff are not trained to U.S. hsopitality standards but they do their best.

Room Tip: Get a beach facing room on a higher floor.

Thank you for visiting us. As far as the hotel, it has gone through a lot of changes, one of them being the hot water which has now been fixed. We also now have WIFI in every room not only the lobby, these are few of the many changes that we have and continue to work on, please do let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Once again thank you!

Terrible experience, Perfect for college students not suitable for a family that wants to rest and a nice and quiet enviroment for their family.

Tried to speak to the Hotel Supervisor or Manager but hotel employees are trained to say that for Security Reasons they cannot disclose Management information but if they could assist you with anything they could help NOT TRUE, LOUD GUESTS continue for DAYS until morning hours.

We went for the first time to Rocky Point Mexico and I have to say we will come back for years to come. Penasco Del Sol is beautiful. Our room was a Master Suite on the second floor overlooking the ocean. It was clean, well kept and comfortable. The hotel itself is wonderfully decorated and I have to say the most gracious and nicest staff from bellman, housekeepers, grounds and up. Extraordinary service. The pool area is well cared for and clean. We will come again and again. Already planning our next trip. You have an incredible property and staff. Management should be proud. Thank you for your hospitality.

Room Tip: We requested the Master Suite and were not disappointed. It had a bedroom with a king and living roo...
