“Worst experience ever...and not even that cheap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2006

This hotel experience was by far the worst i've ever had. we read previous poor reviews but disregarded them - BIG MISTAKE!!! the room was dingy, dirty, disgusting. the A/C didn't work well so we used the window but there was so much noise outside, we couldn't sleep. the power went out repeatedly, and to top it all off we had no running water for at least 12 hrs (didn't stick around to find out when (or if) it came back on). they refunded my 2nd night but only after i called a US number. I payed $72 per night (price after fees for the cheapest room they had) which is not that cheap considering the product they are offering. I strongly advise against it!!

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — dirty rooms, no running water, no electricity
  • Tips/Secrets — don't stay here

This hotel was suffiecient for the needs of 16 college kids who wanted to party and have a good time. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. It was near the beach and incase you were too inerbriated to walk that far- a pool was on the premises. Also it was very close to all of the night clubs. Mani's was just down the street. The price of the hotel was very reasonable and so was the price of the drinks. If you are jsut looking for an inexpensive way to relax and have fun- Fiesta De Cortez is the hotel for you.

(Please note, my review ties in with "Best Place to Get Drunk in RP". We were some of the 17 who stayed at Fiesta de Cortez)

Fiesta de Cortez is the greatest place in Rocky Point, Mexico for college students who are looking a Happy Time! It is affordable and is the best place to party! I coordinated a trip to Rocky Point with 16 friends who truly know what it's like to have a great time. I chose this hotel because it was affordable and it was near all the happenin' places in Rocky Point.
When we arrived, the staff manager Charmin, was exceptionally cool! The staff here are so amazing! The bartenders, Jorge and Jorge even named a drink after our group called The Roswell because that is where all of us partiers came from. If you stay at this hotel, you MUST ask for a Roswell!
The pool at Fiesta de Cortez is awesome for just relaxing with about a hundred Coronas with lime a day, having a pool-side beerbong, and dancin' it up to the tunes they play in the bar. Seriously, folks, Fiesta de Cortez is the best place to stay in Rocky Point because, not only were the rooms fantastic and even had air conditioning, the staff is Incredibly Hospitable. Things got a little crazy while we were there, but the staff did not mind at all.
Fiesta de Cortez is the best place for college students and big groups who like to drink, dance, and really get wild and crazy! Viva Fiesta de Cortez!!!!

This Hotel is the best place to stay Rocky Point if you plan on drinking nonstopped for your entire stay. Our party which consisted of 15 college students got drunk on the hotel premesis every day and night then proceeded to break bottles; light one-eighth sticks of dynamite (which we had purchased from street vendors) in our rooms, pool, parking lot etc; and blow up dead fish; the farewell barbecue we had even turned into a 10 foot tall bonfire, into which my freinds and I blew tequila, everclear, and lighter fluid from our mouths--resulting in a dragon like plume of fire. We were animals. If you party like this, fiesta is the best place in RP because no matter what we broke, set on fire, or exploded the staff was totally cool. The last night we even destroyed the plumbing in one of the rooms and water was shooting up like it was comming out of the blow hole of an orca whale. None of this was ever a problem with the staff! If you complain a lot, are old, or have children that you don't want hearing profane language then do not stay here. Got questions? hit me up: physicalphunk@hotmail.com

Warning: One of the hotel wings is unfinished/condemnable and you may end up in it. To be fair to this hotel, one of the two wings looks better than the other and probably is. The only problem is that you will not know which one you will be put in until you get there. I reserved two rooms and requested that they be side by side if possible. When I got there, the rooms were on two totally different floors. There were air conditioners in each room that did not have any manual control buttons and had to be operated with a remote control. Unfortunately, the remote control to one of them was missing, and when the front desk was told about it, they said that we would have to share between the two of us! Also there were no remote controls to the televisions, which had poor reception anyway. The worst thing of all is that the rooms did not even come equipt with telephones to call to the front desk or anywhere else. And when the people next door return to their rooms at 2:30 a.m. (as this is a popular place for young vacationers who party all night), you'd better be expecting to party along with them because it sounds like they are entering your room because the walls are so thin. Also, the shower had no partition from the rest of the bathroom in my room, but they did have one in my friend's room. And, there was no closet or anywhere else to hang clothes in my room, but my friend's room had a bar in an alcove to hang clothes on. Finally, you'd better bring your own towels if you stay here because you only get two very thin and rough feeling ones that are not absorbant, and this hotel has rules posted which read that "you will be charged $10 for stained towels". Which room will you get, with which amenities? It seems to be random. This place is not worth what they charge. They want to charge prices that are comparable to American rates, but not provide equal quality of service. Beware!!!

I was lured to this hotel by the 3 star rating, I will give it a 1/2 star.
This hotel looks like a set for a Stephen King film. Very old and needed repairs.
The day of our check in was delayed due to the room being cleaned, they should have left it dirty since the condition was still filthy. The phone was ready to fall apart and did not work. The sofa bed was a wood board and with no mattress(not usable). All the furniture must have been 15 to 20 years old and ready to fall apart. The advertised kitchen was a crawl space, only the small fridge was working. The bathroom had mold and all of us felt uneasy using it. The windows did not shut and had no ocean view(as advertised). The swimming pool had sand and the staff was very unfriendly. We had no choice but to stay at this hotel since all others were booked but will never recommed it to anyone. If you have reservations, cancelled them.
