I came to stay at Hotel Playa Blanca with friends for a birthday celebration. Let me tell you, I found paradise here. My room (908) was luxurious! The view of the sandy beaches, ocean, and pool area is amazing. I believe every room has this fantastic view as well. The desk clerks were all very gracious and helpful, special kudos...

Thanks you for you awesome review! We are very pleased with the response we have been getting with our new White Beach Gift shop, Bar and Restaurant. The paintings are quite spectacular! Again we appreciate your kind words about our staff and service. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great place to stay the staff is over the top helpful and polite. Very clean and beautiful grounds and the pool is just wonderful. It is a little bit out of town but that's OK because there are beach bars close by. the Salsa bar and soggy peso are the best places to eat

Thank you very much for your nice review. We appreciate your comments on our staff and our facility. The Soggy Peso and La Salsa are a couple of favorite spots for our guests and we have just opened the White Beach bar and restaurant here at the hotel...so now you have even more options!

Spent a great weekend down in San Carlos with a couple buddies. Ran into a gentleman named Dave my second day there and he was able to explain the whole scenery for me and let me know of a couple of good places to visit while down there. Great location with a private beach as well as a couple of...

Visited San Carlos for a 4 day weekend with my girlfriend and two buddies. Hotel playa Blanca had a great hospitality, best service by far from any other hotels I've stayed at in San Carlos. I'm familiar with the town as I use to live in empalme, Sonora. Right next to its own private beach! Would definitely recommend!

I have stayed at Playa Blanca for the last 5 years. I usually stay 2months sometimes 3. The condos are beautiful and comfortable and everything works or they fix it immediately. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. The beach is one of the best, clean and nice sand. I especially like the 2 bedroom units, the master suite is...

This is my 4th stay at Playa Blanca. It's the best value and convenient to town, but not in the thick of it. The views of the mountains and the ocean are amazing! The pool is well-maintained, and the condos are large and spacious. My favorite part is that just a short walk down the beach you have The Soggy...

We came to San Carlos over New Years and initially stayed at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel for one night - and were thoroughly disappointed. We walked down the beach that first day and found the Play Blanca condos and felt like we'd walked into paradise - changing hotels that same day. The pools are great, the hot tubs are...

First let me say there isn't a lot of options for a nice hotel in San Carlos. This is more of a condo operation than hotel. They do not clean or cater to your needs like a hotel. So keep that in mind. We had a three room penthouse kind of room and the rooms are laid out nice with....

This place has a great location. Its right on the nicest beach in SC and the building design itself is very attractive. The place is very clean and staff are always around touching up the place. I wanted to give 5 stars but that's not what the property earned. On check-in they had us in a twin bed room rather...
