Recommend to bring bug spray. pools are great. activities could be better for more fun. spa is worth it.. A little expensive but a very nice experience the hotel overall is a great destiny got a weekend

Great deals on the rooms are offset by three restaurants with an uninteresting menu compounded by being expensive, the wine list is very expensive. In addition, whilst almost empty during the week at the weekend the hotel caters for all-inclusive deals for locals who swamp the hotel’s infrastructure. One night we took a taxi for $3 to the Westin next...

We enjoyed our stay at the Playa Bonita Hotel because it is a lovely hotel, not new but well maintained. The pool area is lovely and the bar at night has music on weekends. Very nice indeed. But the food needs to be improved as they cater mostly to the all inclusive crowd with buffets which are not at all...

Even if it is risky to swim in the sea, the swimming pool is big enough to enjoy the day. Nice activity for kids, rooms are spacious and the food is good. Went there with family and kids really enjoyed it.
