The Hotel Hacienda Real del Caribe is a clean, quaint hotel. It is located one block off 5th and two blocks from the beach. It has three floors surrounding a courtyard with a nice, clean pool in the middle. The restaurant is just OK.
The rooms are well-equipped including a wall safe, mini fridge, coffeemaker (coffee supplied at an additional cost – go to Wal-Mart down the street and buy coffee & coffeemate), table & chair, alarm clock, hair dryer, shampoos, etc. The bed was very comfortable, although some of the bedding has seen better days. The air conditioning worked well. The shower pressure was great with lots of hot water. Beach towels are available at no cost. The hotel offers a beach club; however, you have to spend 150 Pecos for use of their chairs/umbrellas, which is not hard to do – one bucket of beer (5) and the food was good.
We stayed in room 220 which faces Calle 10. There is a pub, La Ranita Bar, directly across the street that reaches it’s peak action between midnight and two in the morning. Unfortunately, the window pane of the balcony doors provides absolutely no sound barrier and as such, we did not sleep between these hours. We tried ear plugs but they were uncomfortable. We could have asked to move to an interior room however, we did like to people watch over morning coffee and afternoon beers. To compensate, we snoozed on the beach or at the pool. If this would bother you, request an interior room. Rooms facing 10 Ave would have a similar issue with the Night Club, Coca Bonga, located closeby. For this reason, only, I’m not sure if I would recommend this hotel.
