I have stayed at this hotel many times. The rooms , well are average at best. However, the restaurant is SO good. The breakfast, lunch and dinner is wonderful. The restaurant next door which is over priced and highly overated. The cook at Hotel Puerto Carrillo is worth visiting, she puts love in her cooking and it shows. Can't wait...

Sadie & her staff were more than hospitable to my husband & I & 3 adult sons. Our first hotel was too tight for us all so our boys stayed here but was the main place to relax for us all. Very good breakfast included. Very clean but sheets aren't changed daily unless you ask. Bad reviews earlier may just...

I have nothing good to report about this place other than it's location. We were with a group and the day before we turned up they sold on five of our rooms to other punters who wanted to stay longer. Our room was dirty (lots of dead wildlife under the bed and in the corners) and smelt bad. An attractive...

Staff should be friendlier. Smiling does not kill. Rooms are not cleaned everyday, but quite good. Localization near the one of the best playas is important. We wanted to stay in Posada, but due to some mistakes in reservation we finally ended here. Poor breakfast. Shop is just across the street. Parking avaiable.

Nothing too special about this hotel. Rooms are spacious. Beds were firm with very hard sheets. The curtains didn't close all the way. The bathroom was spacious but old. And unfrotunately, they advertised hot water. We had none, so no shower for me. But our friends in the other room had scortching hot water. Dont know which is worse. I...

I was with my husband for our honey moon was terrible. Would not recommend at all. Only stayed one night. When we got the room, the bathroom was disgusting, smelled musty, was rusty and had ants. -The bed was hard and was out of adjustment, the air conditioner was too loud, but the worst thing was that I had a...

This hotel is certainly over-selling itself on its website. While it is indeed a good value (~$60/night) and does indeed have a pool and restaurant and A/C and parking lot, it's about as basic of a hotel as you can get. (It's the equivalent of a Red Roof Inn for a beach town). The free "breakfast" included coffee and toast,...

“Watch out for the ants if you bring food to your room, so picking one room on the 2nd floor might be a good idea.”
