Our small group of tourists stopped for the night at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel Resort en route to the Copper Canyon. The luxurious rooms, quiet ambience, spectacular views out over the Sea of Cortez at sunset, and delicious food in the restaurant were enjoyed by all. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. Even better were the huge fresh shrimp dinners...

Old, run down, in terrible shape. Did have a good bed and in a great beach location. Pool was also great. But the hotel main areas and the rooms are just old, shabby and in dire need of renovations. Discoloured grout, cracked sinks, leaky taps, worn, and old. Maybe okay for in and out while traveling, but then it seemed...

What a beautiful hotel, this must have been in its grander days. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is still beautiful, all rooms overlook the beach and the outdoor amenities of the hotel and it is truly a sight to see! The rooms...very nice and nicely appointed, bed was comfortable and the room went down hill from there. The faucet...

Problems started right on arrival, our reservation had been downgraded considerably, and had to show e-mails with the original reservation information to sort it out. Then they sent us to a room in a section of the hotel with no hall lights, you couldn't even see the rooms numbers, let alone find the key card hole (and even though it...

We were charged $8000 pesos for 2 nights in a pretty decent room that turned out to have NO air conditioning and there were fumigators spraying outside everyone's doors. They were wearing masks and no one was warned or told what it was for. We complained at 10 pm that the A/C had been on for 4 hrs and it...

The hotel is quite old but the rooms are big, comfortable and clean, the location is OK if you have a car, is in the middle of the bay, but far from everything. The rooms are very clean and all have an excellent view of the ocean. The beach in front of the Hotel was clean and the water was...

If you're interested in visiting San Carlos, Sonora, this is the hotel that has one of the best beaches, the sunset is amazing, but the facilities are awful, old, and many of them broken. We wanted to sit in the couches and they were broken, the shades didn't close so the room was really illuminated at 630 am... the restaurant...

We got a great deal on a five night stay so that upped the review a little bit and it is a beautiful location. Also some of the staff members were extremely nice which helped, I just wish there had been more staff. We went in summer so it was off season, but still it seemed so understaffed. The towel...

We stayed in this hotel last year and while a little run down, the staff was friendly and our visit was pleasant. The only reason this review is not getting a "teribble" this year is because the staff was pleasant. We just finished a stay there for this year and it was not so good. When we first checked in,...
