Went there on business. Good AC, good bed and iffy wifi. The bar is well stacked and the staff is super friendly. Good food too. The only knock is the parking. I would suggest valet parking, but, that´s just me. Cheers.

We only stayed here for 1 night so my review is limited but we had a fantastic stay. We booked apartment 1 with two bedrooms, full kitchen, living room and great view of the ocean. We spent the day at the pool which was great and ordered food and drinks around the pool area with great service. Before we decided...

Really nice hotel, great furnishings. Super staff. THis hotel is right on the main strip at Zicatela beach, close to cool bars, but inside the hotel it is a nice little oasis. I was surprised at how nice the rooms were for the price.

We spent 3 nights in the Rockaway Hotel. The hotel is perfectly located right by the beach of Zicatela as well as restaurants and bars in the area. Our double room was huge and the big bed was super comfortable. What was outstanding is the staff. My partner and I have our own company in the UK so we had...

Terrible service! Very rude front desk manager. Hotel has a huge WATER problem! Showers are terrible, and hot water supply is very limited! When asked for help to solve the WATER issue they said that all the hotel had the same problem and they couldn't do anything about it. They also didn't offer anything in return to compensate! DO NOT...

Went there on December and got one of the suites for myself; given the very small price difference with the standard, you get double space and much more comfort. Simple and neat hotel, good maintenance with some brand new rooms, small pool, and very friendly staff. Food is ok in general, do not get your hopes high on elaborated food...

I was delighted with my stay at this spot on Zicatela Beach. The property is well designed and well maintained. It was very clean inside and out. Everything worked well except the WiFi. I complained to Reception but was told that it was standard for Puerto Escondido. He said they had some guest computers connected to the Internet by cable...

Having just travelled with friends to Puerto Escondido, I had an amazing, diverse experience at the Hotel Rockaway. The Rockaway combines the perfect balance of contemporary hotel amenities with a Central American vibe. The staff were courteous, professional, and also knowledgeable about the local area, which was helpful for a few daily tours and activities. Our room was clean and...

Amazing hotel. Beautiful rooms and bathrooms. I was so relaxed there. Hotel may not have a beach view but when you are a few steps from the beach it's not an issue. Very friendly staff. Hotel is very clean. Couple of clean cool pools available and a small collection of shops. Also there's a spa and tattoo shop available. I...
