This is a great place to stay in rocky point. Has a restaurant on site that has music nightly. The rooms a comfortable, beds are a little hard but that's to be expected. The resort is right on the beach which is awesome to have a beachfront room!

Cheapest place to stay right on the beach but remember you get what you pay for. if you want everything and then some included, you better find a more expensive hotel. This is your average American Motel six, no-frills no thrills..no coffee maker in the room, no refrigerator, no microwave. Staff was incredibly nice and helpful, make sure you have...

Rocky Point is my favorite vacation place. The culture and the people of Rocky Point create a relaxing environment to unwind. Rooms are very clean. Service is outstanding. The vendors up and down the beach will ensure you want for nothing. Plenty of activities to do all around the area.

We stayed on the 3rd floor room 705... the view was perfect! Beds were nice, size of room was nice. Overall very...

They were like sleeping on a piece of plywood!! The breakfast buffet was disgusting and there was no option to...

The Playa Bonita is an older building but is very well maintained and has elegance and pleasing layout. Bedrooms are basic and very clean. Nice deep bath. Balconies and ocean views. The restaurant and adjoining bar overlooks the beach and the decor creates a good feeling. You have a choice of eating indoors or alfresco on its patio. The food...

The location on the beach is beautiful. The rooms are adequate. The mattresses are a bit hard. The decor is a bit spartan but adequate and every room has a balcony and view. The people are helpful. There is a good restaurant and patio bar attached to the hotel. It is very clean. The sound carries and so it is...

Best deal on beach and still short taxi to downtown. Has decent restaurant and bar. Staff very helpful. Decent views from almost all rooms. Rooms clean and beds comfortable. Booking site was acting up but phone call worked fine.

“the oceanfront rooms are the best!”

“Suites facing the ocean are prime, if you cant get those the outside rooms are better. Higher floors will get you away from noise.”
  • Daytime view from the room
  • Dusk view from the room
