Highly recommend this destination and condo stay. Excellent location with breath taking views of sea of Cortez and restaurants on the beach . The hospitality was excellent and very service oriented. Hope that there is a more direct route from east coast on USA to get there

Ok this is a very nice property and it sits right on the most beautiful beach. Restaurants are a short beach walk away and you cant beat the views. But this property feels as if the developers just stopped short. There is no restaurant. The gift shop is permanently closed. The hot tubs are not hot. There is not even...

Thanks very much for your review. We apologize for the bar the lack of service concerning the bar/restaurant and convenience store. The former operator left at the end of September and are in the process of re-opening those concessions in November. The hot tub heating systems should be at 102 degrees.. thank you for bringing that to our attention! Finally...

This property has the potential to excel and become a destination spot but has a way to go before earning rave reviews. This is a mixed positive and negative review. Location: Perfectly situated on the beachfront with immediate access to the beautiful pool and beach and within walking distance to some of the beach bars and food or just long...

Well kept large pool for kids. Hot tubs are just part of the pool and not hot. Excellent staff allowed us to...

If you're old and just want to sit on the beach...this is the place! The condos are amazing and well-appointed (granite, stone, etc). Housekeeping was supposed to refresh our coffee and take out the garbage daily. They took out the garbage and made one of the beds each day...that's something:) Unfortunately, there is absolutely NO area info here in the...

San Carlos is a gem of a destination, and Playa Blanca is the perfect accommodation. Clean, secure, and staffed with helpful professionals. Very popular with Americans, it makes a trip to Mexico easy and fulfilling. Highly recommend as a repeat destination.

Great beach sports and fishing and diving as well. Never had a bad visit. I stay their around once a month on average.

I have been coming to the Playa Blanca for several years and I have to say that it is a first class experience from start to finish. Of course the view, beach and the pool are amazing. Bit the real secret is the friendly staff. Clearly the best that San Carlos or better yet Sonora has to offer.
