We came to San Carlos over New Years and initially stayed at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel for one night - and were thoroughly disappointed. We walked down the beach that first day and found the Play Blanca condos and felt like we'd walked into paradise - changing hotels that same day. The pools are great, the hot tubs are...

First let me say there isn't a lot of options for a nice hotel in San Carlos. This is more of a condo operation than hotel. They do not clean or cater to your needs like a hotel. So keep that in mind. We had a three room penthouse kind of room and the rooms are laid out nice with....

The location is great, the sunset is AMAZING !!!! the service was friendly and efficient, the staff resolves any issue, question or accommodation we requested.

This place has a great location. Its right on the nicest beach in SC and the building design itself is very attractive. The place is very clean and staff are always around touching up the place. I wanted to give 5 stars but that's not what the property earned. On check-in they had us in a twin bed room rather...

Excellent place to spend family vacation and relax. We had an awesome time. The room was nice with beautiful view. Kitchen was equipped with basic necessities. The decor in the lobby was spectacular! Laid back town.

The view is the best you can find in San Carlos, or anywhere I've been in Mexico. The staff is very friendly and the condo was beautiful. It's a little bit outside of the town so the beach is quiet and clean. I would recommend any one visiting San Carlos to strongly consider staying at playa Blanca. Also the soggy...

Thanks very much for your review. We apologize for the bar the lack of service concerning the bar/restaurant and convenience store. The former operator left at the end of September and are in the process of re-opening those concessions in November. The hot tub heating systems should be at 102 degrees.. thank you for bringing that to our attention! Finally...
