The hotel is in a great location, close to the bus station and the ferry. It's clean, safe and comfortable. It's just off the busy Fifth Avenue so it still can be loud at night (the air conditioner is so quiet it doesn't drown out the noise). But it had hot water, a room safe, a coffee maker, TV, beach...

Another wonderful stay at Hotel Delfin with my wife and son! The location is perfect! The top two penthouse sweets overlook the ocean and main tourist boardwalk. This hotel is for people who want to experience the local culture and be at the center of 5th avenues restaurants, bars, shops, ferry and of course the beautiful beach!

El Delfin is right on 5th ave in the middle of everything, super convenient, close to the ferry, bars, restaurants and nightclubs, all within walking distance. Staff was nice and courteous, AC mighty cold, great deal. Bueno, Bonito y barato!

We just returned from a week's stay here, and couldn't have been more pleased. We have spent time at 2 other places in PDC, but this is the best and the cheapest. The room was really large, a double bed and a table and chairs, and lots of storage. We stayed in Room 4 on the second floor, facing 5th...

We love this location, you are steps from all the great things Playa has to offer. We booked this hotel knowing it is a budget friendly property so the slightly worn sheets and towels did not bother us at all, our room was clean and the housekeepers kept it that way. The drinking water just outside our door was a...

My wife and I spent 4 nights here in January 2016. Basically, we liked the place. It's a good value: central location, close to the beach, close to airport shuttle and car rental (Alamo), a friendly staff, large room. We were given room #1, which I was initially happy about because it faces Calle 6, and not the hustle and...

I just stay here in one of the corner rooms that had a super romantic setup with tree trunk decor. My wife love it! The bed had this hanging privacy screen which sparked up our night, the views of 5th ave made us people watch and the decorative details on the room made our stay something we'll never forget.
