Chose another hotel if you are on a vacation

This hotel is very far from the beach. If you are on vacation and would like to enjoy the ocean shore than pick a different hotel. This is really a hotel for visitors who are just passing through and need a nice place to lay your head down.

I'll tell you everything you need to kno

It's a long walk to the beach and you have to go through 2 blocks of ghetto neighborhood to get there. The hotel does not offer any water to drink and the breakfast consists of toast, fruit, and coffee. The pool is very tiny and none of the exercise equipment work in the fitness center. There is no concierge at the hotel and the closest restaurant is a 15 min walk. Now with that all being said, the staff is the friendliest staff I have ever known. Every employee there knew me by name and greeted me with a smile everyday!

Great Value

Magic Express Hotel was a great value. It really is not near the beach AT ALL, however they do have a shuttle van (which isn't always available) to take you there. Taking a taxi to and from the beach/clubs is not a problem and only costs a couple of bucks. There is a nice small continental breakfast. I'd watch the news on the flat screen tv and have my breakfast and read a few complimentary newspapers, incl. an english language one. The room itself was really nice in a lower end W hotel sort of way. Very nice small flat screen tv with cable and cool modern fixtures. I liked the electronic safe in the room which is always a neccessity when travelling. There was a small little gym with a treadmill and elliptical machine. Going along with how far away it is from the beach, the hotel seems to be a businessman's hotel with groups of shirt-wearing people in small conference rooms. To sum up I'd definitely stay there again. Magic Express a nice place!

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

A couple of cool, bars to hang out down near Avenida Qunita are The Bar Ranita and The Beer Bucket. Both are on 10th street, between 5th avenue and 10th avenue. At Ranita ask Mariposa for a Thed Special! Head down the street to the bucket where you'll meet a great group of guys and Ale will serve you an cold cerveza!
