“Worst place ever”
Reviewed January 22, 2007

It's my understanding that some of the rooms are in fair condition; however, we certainly didn't get one of them. So if you like to gamble, go ahead and book a room here. Nothing in our room was in decent shape or functioned properly. There was a kitchenette with no refrigerator, stove, or running water. The bathrooms were absolutely repulsive. I think the majority of furniture was picked up from the dump or street corner. I’m still not sure why we didn’t just sleep in the trunk of our car, it would have been an improvement.

You get what you pay for. This hotel was ok. It was nice that it had a little kitchen, which we didnt really use. It had a nice kitchen table and nice little living room. But the bathroom was not good. The shower door would not close so the restroom was soaked. The pool was nice and clean. Other than that it was fine. I would stay again if i was on a low budget.

This place is a DUMP..it is a MEXICAN PROPERTY FOR MEXICANS.....if you have any class what so ever you will NOT STAY HERE. Bugs in the rooms,hot,air hardly works at all,the so called kitchen is a HOTPLATE, the swimming pool is old and flithy same as the so called hottub. And lets not forget about the restaurant, what a joke..they can make lets see..tacos,tacos,tacos..and not very good ones at that. The bar is a typical MEXICAN BAR ,I know this is Mexico and I can deal w/that..but try dealing with this joke of a HOTEL..RESORT...and lest not forget the staff......real bright bunch they have working if you can understand them between all the yelling theu do to each other...Just a warning this place is not what they advertise....not even close!

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!!

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!!!!
