Quiet with quality

This hotel was obviously built with grand expectations, but as San Carlos has not developed into a major destination like other Mexican sites, you can experience a relaxed, low key vacation on a low budget. The lobby is fantastic and the room is comfortable and clean. But when I stayed on a Friday night in October, there were maybe 20 cars in the parking lot. There were so few people they cancelled the breakfast buffet, though the regular menu was still available. I think it's just too expensive for the locals and too out-of-the-way for American visitors and as a result it's not very crowded. But if you're looking for a low-key, good value spot away from crowds but with all the amenities, this is the place.

The Soggy Peso bar down the beach is a great spot to enjoy the beach and have a snack/drink.

fantastic family getaway!

This was an overall great hotel! The rooms were clean! You would have to let the water run about five minutes before you get hot water to take a shower. Everyroom has an ocean view! Great atmosphere inside the hotel. I would say it has the nicest beach in all of San carlos. The staff was friendly and they all spoke English. I ate at the resturaunt one night, the food was ok... The pool is beautiful but not heated. For the price it was great! I would definitely go back! Also in san carlos most everyone speaks English there.

Beginning to show age

I did not travel with a child, but I have 7 children and 9 grand-children and they would have LOVED this place. There were many families and the kids were very happy. This hotel is lovely, the staff are well spoken in English, and the rooms are clean. Many clients have obviously put wet swimsuits and towels on top of all of the furniture and over the wood slatted closet doors. Paint is beginning to peel and surfaces of the wood furniture are beginning to bubble and some have popped. They need to channel some of their income into maintenance or it will slowly lose its luster. The beds are the hardest I have EVER had. For me, this was good due to a bad back but might be a problem for others. The interior court with indoor rock waterfalls, etc. is wonderful. Copper chargers for your plates in the restaurant. They began with a lot of $. I was there for only one night on business so never saw the pool or jacuzzi, BUT it is one of the few hotels that I have seen in Mexico with tubs in all of the rooms and I LOVED my bath. The blackout curtains were the best I have ever seen. I needed them the following morning due to the late night band keeping me up, lol. It was a Sat. night.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

A local steak house called the Bronco was delightful. I have lived in Mexico for 5 years and this is the closest I have had to a good American Rib Eye. When you are coming into San Carlos, it is on the right BEFORE the Banamex bank. Dinner with a drink cost me under $15.00.

Sligthly less than perfect

Due to the Season (March 14, 2010) the Spa was closed. The Gym is out of date and equipment is rusty. The Jacuzzi doesn't work and was used by kiddies as a kiddie pool. Our door wouldn't lock, but when discovered (by someone walking into our room by accident) the staff immediately fixed it. The beds were hard as planks of plywood. All Rooms are spacious and within a few hundred feet of the beach. multiple restaurants on site. Helpful staff. Given everything, the price of the room was amazing.

"The good, the bad, and the really ugly"

The Good: Hotel location is Excellent, service is good, rooms are clean and neat. The Bad: if there's an event going on let's said outside in the Palapa they close the service to everyone and you have to go inside for service. The Really ugly: where can I start with this one, food prices too high (for the price of 2 you can dine out at Chili's or Applebee's and will be for 4), you can't bring in coolers or drinks just a small water, they don't allowed outside food.

I think its "Las Palmas" or "La Palapa" next to an OXXO by the Marina. Also a great place to go is "Panchito's Villa". Both real good and cheap.

Good food, hard beds!

The hotel is too far from the restaurantes area and the town, you have to pay taxi everytime you want to go to another beach or dancing or a restaurante. The beds are so hard, Two double beds too small. The filtered water facucent in the bathroom din not work. The jacuzzy did not work, and they did not seem to mind. The food and drinks are great and their prices excelent considering.

The Palapa Bar at the hotel has great food and drinks and great prices, at the Kiosko try the Tortilla soup, and the Club Sandwich.San Carlos have the best restaurantes all kinds, but beware of the check, ask prices no matter if you think you look cheap, the charge me 8 dollars for a chardonay and the Filet Mignon was 13 at Broncos, so, not very nice. Go to Bananas, nice drinks 20 pesos beer and great food, and live music for good taste people. La Conquista is a very nice restaurante, Haute Cuisine, very expensive but you can get the same dishes in the states no big deal.Embarcadero Restaurante at la Marina has great breakfast and the view of the boats of course is so worth it.
