“Would not recommend”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Stayed here in August of 2011 for a long weekend...it was a budget friendly trip with my now husband. The place is rundown, dirty, smelling and in poor condition. Would not stay again, and would not recommend others to do so.

The service was okay and the free breakfast I will say was good. There is a pool and tiki bar, so that made up for it slightly. The location is not close to the pier and we had to cab it everywhere.

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

This place is disgusting. The AC unit had mold in it and made the room smell- so I could see on the third day the cleaning crew added a powder to it to disguise the smell. The balcony door did not lock and the only working lock on the front door was the weak chain. Their was rust and mold in all corners of the bathroom and "living" area. The speaker was blown in the TV so all i could hear was a muffle. Also do not fall for the online sights stating that it has a full kitchenette and ocean view....all lies. The only good thing was the music by the tiki bar but be careful cause the deck is loose and the pool is filthy.

Room Tip: There are none.

We have stayed at this hotel several times. Our trip last weekend was terrible. We requested a room on 1st floor by the pool for our handicapped mother. The room was dingy and very loud thanks to the tiki bar, the parking garage about 10 feet from the door, and several guests running up and down the hall. We moved after several hours when our bathtub would not drain after 2 showers. Our new room on the 9th floor was worse. None of the outlets in the main area would hold a plug. A suitcase bumped the satellite wiring and we lost all our channels. The sink handle worked but turned in circles. The only redeeming facts about this room was the shower did work and the room was quiet. Several guests complained about loudness and inappropriate behavior on the balconies. I complained at the front desk while checking out and only received insincere apologies. The management must have changed since we were there 2 years ago. Spend your money elsewhere.

Room Tip: don't stay close to the pool unless you don't mind the bar noise; music was still going afte...

This is not a resort! ! ! False advertising ! ! !. The door to our room displayed marks of a break in. The door is difficult to open and close or bolt shut. The bathroom smelled of sweat and mold. The hot water for the shower is warm to Luke warm. The kitchenette is less than inviting. Dishes are chipped, stove frightening, only good thing is the ice cold fridge. The paint on the walls is chipping off, walls dirty, rug smells. The ocean front view is construction, garbage container with the smells, the outdoor tiki lounge played loud booming bass music. That was our first room. My husband planned our trip and it is heartbreaking to see a six foot two truck driver -former football player have a broken heart heavy with disappointment. I spoke to the friendly-courteous staff and our room was changed. The new room did not smell however the bathroom and room need a paint job, the stoves need replacing. The coffee grounds had no tast. This " resort" is a first class dump. Hotel guest smoking weed, a mom dropping the 'f' bomb on her small child, people yelling in the middle of the night, and the joy of waking up to the sound of someone throwing up/coughing. The walls are paper thin. The amount paid, We should have stayed home and go out to dinner, go the movies, go dancing with drinks. A staycation is an investment and this was the opposite.

We have been coming to the LaPlaya for many years and absolutely love it! The staff is excellent and very caring especially at the tiki bar where Crissy, Mary, Kyle the DJ, Dane and of course Joe, make sure we are happy! I hated to leave after our 2 week stay...they are like family! This year we brought our friends who absolutely loved their experience there and will be back next year. I have never seen a bug, the rooms are clean, and the staff is great! We had new carpet in our room and they are continually doing upgrades. We could stay at a more expensive hotel, but we live the LaPlaya!

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are the best.

Let me begin by saying the pictures of this so called resort are EXTREMELY deceiving. It looks like a great beavh front hotel in pictures. In reality this is not a place to being a family and as a single woman felt wvwn more uncomfortable and unsafe. I checked in and checked right back out. The set up is like a motel where each room has an external door. Paint chipping everywhere in the external corridors and very dirty. The people staying at this place seemed "shaddy" with questionable intentions. If I had to describe it in a few sentence I would tell you to imagine a scene from a movie about drugs and hookers. They could use this hotel. The only thing missing would be hypodermic needles in the stairwells and pushers at each entrance. Scary and dirty. Couldnt even get our sliding glass door to latch shut and the door into our room didnt shut without extreme force. Our so called ocean view room was on the side of the hotel over looking a construction site for a hotel renovations next door. If you dare go out on the balcony and lean way over and look toward the ocean you see a small glimpse. DO NOT RISK YOUR SAFETY IT IS NOT WORTH IT!! I checked my family out and secured a room at the Plaza down the street for $120. Beautiful there and a very enjoyable stay!

First the good - friendly staff & many local amenities
Then the bad - what we were led to believe & paid for an ocean front room, was actually a construction front room with jackhammers & dump trucks beginning promptly at 7:00 a.m., the paint in the room was peeling, carpet was musty, door to room and bathroom would not open or close without extreme force (our 6 & 10 year old were not able to open the doors themselves), tiny fridge was rusty, deck chairs outside had scary brown stains
The ugly - army of ants & one lone roach! eww! Motel seems to attract many rowdy guests who are up all night with questionable intentions as there were remains of another type of roach left near where my children were playing in the pool.

Room Tip: Book somewhere else
