Location of hotel is excellent - close to town but not in town. A short ride by bus to town. If one wants to go further, simply cross the street to catch another bus. Cost is only 8pesos or 50cents. Another plus - the bus from town stops directly in front of hotel. We were not afraid to return late...

First of let me say the hotel was o.k.. The food was great, the staff, for the most part, were very friendly and attentive, and the heated pool was nice too. There is practically no private beach. They have one, but it is too small to lounge around, but plenty of space to swim out a little. I went for...

Costa Sur is located south of the Malecon yet close enough to be a quick drive away. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and seemed to recognize us as long-time friends after only being there a couple of days. We stayed in the one-bedroom suite which gave us plenty of space. The hotel is a little dated,...

We checked into the Costa Sur the night before Hurricane Patricia! The hotel staff advised us that the storm was coming, but assured us we would be fine. However, overnight the storm strengthened and the Authorities insisted we evacuate. Costa Sur arranged for buses to take us to an evacuation center. The staff were amazing throughout the ordeal. We returned...

Lovely resort. Spacious rooms with brilliant sunset views. Location was a quick bus ride into town or a quick taxi trip. Great to have kitchen with fridge and the t.v had some English channels. Our visit was very relaxing and super pleasant.

A hotel room in my opinion is just that a room. It is simply a building, some fancy some plain. A resort is the staff that work there. The staff as Costa Sur are top notch.

Your room could not be more of an ocean view than what you get here, look out the window and it's nothing but water, and if it's high tide, you can look down and see nothing but water also (only bad thing is that there is no beach when it's high tide, so the stairs leading to the beach from...

“We are on the 5th floor and it works out great. All have an ocean view.”

“Rooms are large and comfortable, though the older rooms (my favorite) are not modern or luxurious. The rooms on the 2 top floors in the south building can have a lot of road noise during the day and sometimes during the night. I also suggest bringing water shoes, for the beach can be full of uncomfortable pebbles. Walking out into the water can be difficult without them.”

“Try to get a room below the lobby level so you're not bothered by the highway noise all night.”
