My vote would be Playa Maya. Nice small, extremely clean, well run, by very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is included and served on the beach. An all around great place.

the Alhambra, was there last week and we liked it. Very low key and right on the beach and just down a street from the main stroll

Here are some web sites for Beach Hotels in PDC, and a few hotels to not consider.

Alhambra www.alhambra-hotel.net very good TA reviews

Fusion www.fusionhotelmexico.com Inexpensive, great atmosphere, small rooms but they were painted and rehabbed June 2009

Illusion Boutique Hotel www.illusionhotel.com Not on the beach , but very close, good reviews

Mosquito Beach Hotel www.mosquitoblue.com mostly Europeans, ages 25 to 35.

Playa Maya www.playa-maya.com almost perfect marks from TA

Playa Palms http://playapalms.com/en/ inexpensive, good value & getting good reviews http://www.playa.info/webcam-playa-palms.html

Mimi del Mar www.mimidelmar.com/ pretty good ratings, palapas feeling

Costa del Mar I was not impressed. It appears to be popular with the divers

Colibri again, I was not impressed, run down, not much of a beach view

Pelicano great location, but the TA reviews are not very good.

I have personally visited Alhambra, Playa Maya and I usually stay in Illusion.

All are very nice.
