Posada Del Mar has an excellent location directly across from an open stretch of Playa Norte just 3 or 4 blocks up the road from the passenger ferry dock. The price is reasonable and the accommodations are what you should expect from that price: a clean bathroom with some toiletries, clean beds, sitting desk, TV and, if you pay for it, A/C. Most (if not all) rooms have balconies that can at least glimpse the ocean. There are beach chairs by the pool and chairs and beds overlooking the main beach (with the main road in between...I don't distract, it just gives more opportunities for people watching!) Penguinos, a bar and restaurant, is right on the premise also overlooking the beach.
There is wifi ONLY in the lobby - consider yourself warned - and A/C only in some rooms. Neither of these is a complain, just be prepared to relax and have a beautiful tropical breeze coming through your room!
One oddity that isn't a big issue is that the bathroom of each room is not 100% separated from the sleeping area: the shower has glass starting halfway up that looks into the room (and out to the ocean!) and the glass stops and the shower is open to the sleeping area about 3/4 of the way up. Again, not bad, just a warning!
The front desk is really only open 7am-11pm so if you have a late arrive you may have to navigate with some Spanish (you ARE in Mexico!) with the night guy who is kind but not always helpful. During the day sign out a beach towel at the front desk and return it before you leave. There are water coolers in the lobby and scattered around the first floor where you can fill bottles to bring back to your room or when you head out for the day.
