Mexican shrimp cocktail is tasty. Fish tacos are excellent and can be shared, as portion is big! Margaritas are tasty. Service is good; one man band was most enjoyable. Sitting on patio makes for an pleasant dining experience.

just spent two days here, great location, very clean but oh so old! This place needs a major renovation and the painting they are doing is not going to bring it up to today's hotel standards. The rates do not make it a value place to stay so might as well go somewhere newer and nicer for close to the... More

We booked this hotel on the spur of the moment trip at the recommendation of a friend who had stayed there recently. The hotel is right on the water at Sandy Beach and the water was warm and the sand clean. There were 2 swim pools and a hot tub. The floors were tiled and the rooms were very clean... More

The Playa Bonita is the oldest beach resort on Sandy Resort. While the oltel may be older, the price and modest upgrades make it a reasonable value. Nice pool, right on the beach, Would stay again becuause of price, location and friendly staff.

The room was average as expected. Only one guest towel for 2 people. No washcloths. No in room coffee. We were on the ground floor and the brick area off our patio was filthy. The second day Housekeeping left no towels, so when we arrived off the beach late afternoon, we couldn't shower until we got some which took 30... More

Our experience needed to be adjusted from the $100 a night over priced hotel Playa Bonita. They did that accepting the more then 15 problems that we experienced on one night. Unbelievable that people who go there to Rocky Point don't know that this place is over priced and under serviced for world type travel. Siem Reap Cambodia is so... More

Room reeked of urine when we walked in, curtains had strong, pungent smell.

Playa Bonita is one of the original hotels in Rocky Point on Sandy Beach. While there are now a number of condo complexes to choose from along the beach, this property continues to be a good choice. It is family owned and operated and the staff is very friendly. The property is getting a bit older, but it is kept... More
