Disappointed!

We were so disappointed by the look and feel of the hotel...actually paid for the night we couldn't get refunded and went down the beach to Penasco Del Sol and paid for the same night. We never did stay at Playa Bonita although the room was paid for. Staff was rude...kept taking calls and talking to cleaning personnel while we were trying to figure out options. Looks like it has seen better days!

Not recomended

Pros: restaurant is ok.
Cons: Front desk needs to be improved for efficiency.
Long check in line, stood inline for 40 minutes, Wall AC unit had a gap that you can look outside, no towel in the room had to hunt for it, bath tub is dated was white turning yellowish, room door needs to be replaced unable to close without banging it shut. Overall place is dumpy.

So you get what you pay for...
