NOT LIKE BEFORE

The place has changed over years ago. I read the reviews and was in Boca Chica for one day and thought I would see for myself. And I did! The check in was difficult even though I seemed to be the only one there, they still had much difficulty checking me in. I was early, they told me I would have to come back a 3 pm, even though hotel was almost empty. I came back at 2:30 and was told nope 3 pm, then at 3pm they told me sorry the room is not ready. They charge you 10 dollars an hour for late check out, maybe I should have charged them for late check in! At about 3:30 was told room was ready, walked 3 city blocks to my room to find the key didn't work. Asked the security guard there if he could get me another key (was having foot problems and didn't want the long walk) He though this was very funny and started to laugh. Was in my room after 4pm. Maid was rude and loud, food was very average, like a school lunch. Many people waiting for them to open the dinner room at 6:30, which opened late. (seems they love to see people wait) Must say the private beach was nice, it is the only place you can go in Boca Chica ( which has a beautiful beach) in which you are protected from the endless parade of locals selling and begging. Room was sub par with uncomfortable worn out bed, they don't use fitted sheets which means you are on a bare mattress in the morning. Unfortunately not a better place to stay in this part of town. It seems you are safe here, plenty of security, which is needed in this area.

Location OK but amenities bad

We did not have a good experience. The check-in staff was slow. The room was next to a huge air conditioning unit and sounded like plane taking off all night. The room was big but was outdated. The beach is OK but below average.

La Hamaca Hotel

There is no way to sugar coated. absolutely worst hotel I have ever vacation in. Rooms are hot, electricity goes in and out. rooms are not comfortable, leaking bathroom, small 13" tube TV. flat pillows, don't refill room drinking water, in room fridge out of service for my whole stay. Customer service very horrible, Front desk very helpful but there is but so much that they can do. it took me 2 hrs to see a manager. the beach is beautiful, pool is very nice. location is not safe. club is not very good. all inclusive liquor ( only the bottom of the bottom brands) they even charge extra for brugal. Casino is a joke with about 10 slot machines and no card games. service in the buffet area is the worst. wouldn't go back there even if it's free.

My woderful stay at the Hamaca Hotel

My experience at the Hamaca Hotel was relative good, employees are very nice and are always looking forward to make you feel in paradise, however the hotel is old and rooms are mostly outdated, it is in needs of maintenance and renovation, food was really good, however they were not prepare for the high volume of guest and were running out of food at breakfast, lunch and dinner. They never granted the free internet included in our package. They had activities during the whole day and shows during the night, is a family oriented hotel my 4 and 3 years old, dance and had fun with Minnie mouse during the kids show at the theater. Overall a good experience unlike the rent a car experience which was the worst of all.

Don't Go Here

The hotel was terrible. Mold and rust everywhere. Black hair everywhere. The room had not been clean. There was no AC in any of my rooms the entire trip. I moved twice and still was terrible. The worst part was they barely spoke English so I couldn't get anything taken care of. I didn't understand anything they said. All they told me was to come back at a later time to get everything taken care of but then I would have to reexplain the entire situation to the next person. The casino was also closed which sucked. That was one of the main reasons we booked this hotel so we would have something fun to do at night. I went to the on-site club one night and there were more hookers there than anything. I was propositioned by 3 different people while I was sitting there with my wife trying to some what enjoy our time. Complete waste of our money. I will say the one good thing was the Dominican Gourmet restaurant and the Mexican restaurant. The water was also really nice and the beach was well taken care of. I did go to the spa and got a massage and it was good.

Hotel Needs Massive Renovation

The area surrounding the hotel isn't bad the beach and the water looks good, however the hotel is hot almost all around the rooms have ancient architecture and fixtures, the in room ac doesn't really work and needs major updating they still use CRT televisions in the room with no English channels the balcony is probably the best part of the room, the bathrooms are old the mini fridge is minimally stocked with 2 soda`s and 2 beer`s they never refill them some of the mini fridges don't work, when you have a problem with your room they won't change it till you bug them for 24 hours at least the food isn't all that threat I do reccomend the Italian hotel that's as close as you can get to food from the us the liquor seems a bit watered down everybody wants tips and you pay for everything that's supposed to be free as a first time experience I created my own fun so I wasn't mad but it was a bit dissapoimting jet skis are $60 for 30 mins scuba diving is about an hour for $75 the best excursion you can go on is probably the4 wheelers its $60 for 3 hours and you go throughout the city visiting landmarks thats the only excursion worth it no one speaks English with the exception of maybe a few employees that work the oddest shifts. Overall the hotel needs to undergo a massive renovation the casino is always closed never open the gym is plain they need more wow factors and better customer service

Great location and Attentive Staff, Needs Renovations

I went with my wife to celebrate my 50th birthday and our 10th anniversary. The staff was very attentive and our check in process was very quick, Phillips was very helpful but once we got to the room we noticed that the hotel needs serious renovations. The air conditioning can barely be felt and the smell of humidity is the first impression in the room. The faucets are old and there aren't modern televisions, only bath and face towels are provided in the room, besides we didn't have an iron which was provided on the second day at our request. There is also problems with the waterflow in the whole facility. Despite these setbacks I have to say we had a great time because the food was very good, the specialty restaurants and the staff were great maintaining the guests entertained. The shows at night were very nice and the disco had good music. All the staff did there best to make our stay a pleasure. We would be pleased to go back once they go through renovations because the concept, the pools, the beach and the location are great. At this moment I have to say that there are other options better than this one.
