The Ocean View king had none of the views they showed. There were wires etc running through your view. Nothing special. And nowhere is mentioned that the restaurant is closed two days a week (a restaurant was the major reason to book it) There was no toilet paper holder in the bathroom, music was channeled into the courtyard/hallway (why I...

We stayed at La Playita on our first and last nights on the island. Great place- right at the beach, though hard to find(we missed the street a couple of times despite GPS) due to poorly hidden street signs. The bar restaurant offers local fare and has daily specials. Parking can be iffy ( few spaces near building) esp street...

La Playita is on the same beach as the InterContinental hotel, just on one side instead of in the middle. I arrived just as the bar was closing, but the staff were accommodating and let me grab a glass of wine before I hit the sack. The hotel has easy beach access and you're able to walk to a number...

Awesome beaches to either side of the hotel, but no direct access to them - walk about 50-60 feet to one and no clue hot to get to the other one. Restaurant has an open deck over the beach, so the waves crash underneath you - nice and relaxing, unless it rains. There is a smoking section near the bar,...

The hotel is cute, is open, feels homey and has a great deck off the restaurant and bar. The loco drink is highly recommended, prices are affordable and the food is amazing! The only downside is the keys to be door, it would of been great for the doors to be accessed through key cards as opening and closing is...

The hotel is an old hotel and it took me a day or two to get use to it. It's literally a room with the bathroom door right next to your bed. I can lean over while in bed and close the bathroom door. There is a mini fridge and cooler. And a little tv up on the wall. You...

We stayed here for a night before a transfer elsewhere on the island since our flight got in late. The night manager only spoke Spanish (fine for us but maybe difficult for some) and didn't give any instructions about the AC - which definitely could have been cooler. Thank goodness for the ceiling fan. The bed was kind of broken...
