Hotel Playa San Carlos
Ranked #3 of 3 San Carlos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 May 2016

This hotel is older and very basic, but the service and views are to die for. We were only going to stay 2 nights and decided to stay a 3rd. Love the beach!!! San Carlos is very small (still) so everything you need is close by. Rooms and grounds were very clean and neat. We both like that there are no TVs in the rooms, we didn't have to deal with unwanted noise. This hotel is for book readers and nature lovers.

Room Tip: All rooms have a patio with a view. Second and third floors had best views.

Upon arrival was greeted by a nice women behind the counter she. After asking the rates she offered me a deal. It was a Monday off season. We fell in love with the place we were planing on checking in, and out the next day, but stayed the whole 4 nights. The food was splendid in the restaurant, beautiful view of ocean with dolphins surfacing while you ate your fresh snapper. The place very very clean. I will be going back when I can. The best part was getting the snapper cooked up before we hit the road. The server was the best he had it ready for us right when we were leaving. To cool.

Room Tip: get a top floor for the view. Bottom floor for access. Skip the one in the middle.

I disagree with previous reviews. The hotel is a perfect getaway from television and internet. The basic rooms are perfect. Food is wonderful and service is excellent. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to getaway from the normal and just relax on the beach

Sad history with present 'manager' . Empty Basic rooms, old beds and non existing service. Old, cold tile floors, no televisions, or Wifi except in bar. Iffy food. There are so many better choices in town.

It is now the Hotel Playa San Carlos. They renamed it Hotel Playa because it's on THE PLAYA, and a South facing playa at that! (Sun ALL day!). The hotel is eclectic for sure, but now repainted, clean but no TV. If you don't want to swim in the ocean, there's a small pool.
The restaurant is excellent with one of the best chef.s in san Carlos! Service is good but there's no draft beer.
All in all, this small eclectic beachfront hotel/restaurant rates a good solid 4 Stars! Telephone: +52 (622) 226-1212

We'd been going to SC for years in our motor home but decided to drive down and stay in a hotel for a week. We had enjoyed going to what was then The Hotel Fiesta and is now Hotel Playa San CArlos. It had been the subject of much legal trouble involving a family who have a less than honorable reputation and was subsequently taken over by them. When we return we found the place to be completely run down and nothing like the property we were used to. The rooms were dirty and no maintenance had been done in ages. Housekeeping services were poor and the restaurant/bar where we had enjoyed so many good times was a disaster with horrible food and poor service. Stay away from this place. There are many better options in San Carlos

Basic and outdates installations, but very close to the entrance/exit from San Carlos, this Hotel has the basic needs for your stay: clean rooms/beds, pool, restaurant, with good rates for the budget. A plus is to be able to buy groceries, food, drinks, etc., to your room without having to pay more. And as a bonus, an Extra store is right across the street to buy that last minute 12-pack :)
