This hotel was reasonable and the people were nice and helpful. The room was a little dated and the view was at a wall of another Hotel, but I did not have a top floor. The lobby area was humid and warm in October. The breakfast buffet was very good with all the juice and coffee you want. The dinner...

Upon my arrival at Hotel Playa, I requested advice on some things to do during my stay. The staff very quickly provided me with some alternatives, which turned out to be very enjoyable. I chose the snorkeling near Playa Blanca, and the City Tour.

Very nice and helpful staff, the rooms look freshly renewed and the breakfast was really good for a complementary breakfast! I love how close to the beach is, and it is in a great location as well. I will recommend it to a friend!

The key thing for me about this hotel is that it is ideally situated on the beach, close to all hotels, bars, shops and restaurants in Bocagrande and is one of the least expensive hotels in the area. The rooms are small but clean and air-conditioned and are pretty much what you would expect for the price. I liked the...
