After reading other reviews on this hotel, i didn't know what to expect. But, we were thoroughly pleased with our choice. This hotel was one of the first built at the beginning of the boom in Puerto Peñasco. Despite its age, it is clean and comfortable. Keep in mind, this is Mexico,...not the US. Hotels aren't 5-star quality always,..at least not in the under $100 range.
Hotel was easy to find, using Google Maps and following Sandy Beach signs. We checked in quickly and without incident. The room was clean and the A/C worked well. Ceiling fan really helped to keep the room comfortable despite the oppressive humidity. Beds were hard as a rock,..but we have found that that is the norm for this type of hotel in Mexico. Despite the property not being directly on the beach, we still had a great beach view from our balcony. Pool area was a little worn, but clean and filled with salt water! TV was an older 19" model, but worked and we had about 20 cable channels with at least 3 in English. WiFi in room was flawless; I'm sitting in our room typing this review!
There is a wine bar on property, but we rarely eat where we stay. Great Italian seafood place is just 5 min up the beach from here. Malecon is less than 10 min drive,..and we can walk to the restaurant at the Playa Bonita Resort next door.
What else can I can say,...we were thoroughly pleased with Laos Mar Hotel!
Good beds, hai dryer, iron/ironing table, clean towels, they provide pool towels too, nice 2 pools, i wish they have a kids pool as well, right infront of the beach, you can buy your own beer or refreshments or food and nobody will bother you at the pool or at the beach ( i used to stay @penasco del sol hotel and they wont let you have drinks or food from outside) definitely stay at Playa Bonita again :)
Great hotel for the price, located in the middle of everything you can walk to 13th street were you'll find quad rentals, bars and food and to the malecon were you can dance Banda for free lol and then to the elixir nightclub on Durango st, me and my girlfriend had a blast !!
The hotel is located a little bit out of the main touristy area which I loved. You have lots of privacy, it's across the street from the ocean, there's a couple restaurants with good food just a short walk away, a corner store, the beach is really pretty and very rocky . The room itself was clean , had working ac and heat , plenty of soap and towels. The beds are a bit hard but still everything clean and TV with dish channels.
The best thing about this hotel was the great staff. They are a great bunch of people. They were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I had a bit of car trouble during my stay and they let me stay well beyond my checkout time and didn't charge a dime. One man even helped me look at my car very early in the morning. I know where I'm staying when I return.
I accidentally dropped my brand new IPhone in a lobby chair and was unawhere of its whereabouts. I thought for sure my phone was lost and I would have to replace it. To my surprise and joy the hotel staff notified me it was found on a lobby chair and they held it for me. I was extremely impressed with the staff's courtesy and honesty.
my husbant and I came to celebrat out anniveserty and we have a great time at this hotel. What we like the most stuff was super nice, also hotel has a bar and DJ as well resourant. Food was great and price was right. I will stay at this hotel again. Most the stuff spoke English. I am planing the other trip in a month so we will stay at this hotel again. Thank you.
It was an amazing hotel experience. Staff was eager to help and recommended the areas for fun. First time here, I did not want to pay for an expensive resort. I found this lovely inn near the beach. Not much people know of it. Very private and comfortable. I believe me and my girlfriend were the only ones there that weekend. Overall I will come back to this inn every time I visit.
We go to Puerta Penasco every year for 5 - 7 days. We drive from St. George Utah and have stayed at 3 different places including the Laguana Shores Resort. We were extremely happy, comfortable and satisfied our whole time there. We have already booked our stay for next year with them. The staff was friendly. The condo was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. The grounds were beautiful and all there was so much to do right there at the resort. Try it for yourself and you won't be anything but glad you do.
