We stayed at Playa Roca for five nights while getting my mom settled in her new house in Las Penitas. The locals who hang out here are friendly and the atmosphere is great. This is not a fancy american resort, and frankly, that is what I loved about it. The rooms are simple and clean and very affordable. The staff...

This place has very nice and attentive local staff. The American owners, however, are unprofessional and frankly negligent. At 3:40am, a large plywood piece of the ceiling came crashing down about a foot from the head of my sleeping mother. It turned out a cat had jumped on the roof, which was so flimsy it caved in. When we protested,...

I like this place. I stayed here three years ago and just finished another 7 great days. I didn't want to leave and I'll likely return again. I come for the the beach/surf and Playa Roca has the best location in Las Pinitas. The cafe has a good sized menu and I enjoyed everything I ordered. I noted that the...

I was there in February 2014. The area is beautiful, but the rooms are dirty. The air conditioning was a nice perk, but it was bothering that the owner or manager was a complete jerk. There were kids selling shells and bracelets on the beach. As the kids came up to offer them to us (not in a nagging way...

I was there on December of 19 2013. Bad experience with the room we rented. The owner was very nasty with me because I told him the A/C wasn't working and they can't fix it so he didn't like that I told him that I did not want to stay there.

We stumbled across this hotel by chance as choices in this town are minimal. The hotel is pretty old but the room was fine for the price. Beach is not swimable because of steep strong surf. We loved the restaurant, food was really good, enjoyed whiling away the day drinking rum in the sun.....but, my big complaint was in the...

When I made the reservation the woman I spoke to was nice and offered me a deal for two nights. Bit when we arrived they gave us a room and later said I had to pay 5 dollars per night more because it had ocean view. Apparently that room was more expensive. I would have understood if they told me...
