Las Misiones Hotel is an adequate, no-frills place to stay a short distance from the Malecon area. The rooms are clean but the bed was too stiff for my liking. The water pressure is a joke & our tub was disabled so that we could only take showers. The hotel is on the "beach" but you'll be quite disappointed when the tide is up. At this time of year (April 15-19) the tide goes out for at least a 1/4 mile until 10 AM-ish. It comes in very quickly (within a half hour), and stays in until 7 PM-ish. With the tide in, there is only about an acre of usable sand/tanning area. This area is only available by walking to the far south end of the hotel area, climbing a 4 foot wall and then climbing down large, jagged rocks. That description does no justice to how horrible it truly is, but if you want to live on the edge, that's how we got to the sand. Good news is that the main pool is fairly nice.
The lounge chairs aren't aren't exactly comfortable & some have broken planks, but not really a big deal. There is a second pool but it was littered with leaves & sand. We found the restaurant service throughout San Felipe to be pitifully horrible but La Terraza at Las Misiones was by far the worst. Except at the taco stands, where you will be served almost immediately, expect to wait some time for your waiter to get to taking your order. Make sure you order a couple of beers while you wait for the food because he won't be back for a while... even when you wave him over or yell out to him. We went to Rice & Beans, Bajamar & Rositas and each had equally horrible service. If you can handle it, it's pretty funny to watch the gringos blow fuses expecting service like we are used to in the U.S. Anyway, as bad as that may seem, La Terraza had EVERY table's order wrong. They took over an hour to deliver food to the tables & never showed up with ours before we decided to make the drive into town instead... and all we ordered was a cold ham sandwich, soup and a fruit salad. At the other restaurants, the root of their service problems was that they were understaffed. La Terraza had too many waiters for the number of people dining but only one of them was actually working/taking the brunt of customer complaints. Lucky guy didn't speak a word of English. If you book thru El Dorado Ranch/Red Lobster, they will send you a map that shows the street name, but the streets have no signs so that doesn't do very much good. The best way to find it is by taking the "Aeropuerto" exit from the traffic circle when you enter town. Follow that road a couple of miles until you see "Last Stop Mini Market" on the right (the sign is lit all nite). The next left will have a large billboard for Playa Club. Turn left there.
Go to the end of that short street & turn left again. It's the only entrance to the right. In a nutshell, Las Misiones is adequate if you're going to be out in the town & just need a place to sleep & shower. We made a good time out of the 5 days we were there & I'm sure you can all do the same. Have a nice trip!!!
