We spent our 35th Anniversary celebrating for four days at LaPlaya! This was a great romantic choice! Our room at the Beach House over looked the Gulf of Mexico. Our stay was outstanding and we highly recommend LaPlaya as a destination!

Excellent weekend stay at La Playa. Wonderful sunsets combined with great food and drinks. Special thanks to Ryan who greeted us with smiles and charm every time we saw him at valet. Could be the hardest working man in the hotel industry - always there but always happy! Would also recommend a stop to see Mike and Luigi - great bartenders who sure know how to make a drink and carry on a fun conversation. Hotel was special, the people there made it memorable.

Perfect location! Beautiful beach! Accommodating and friendly staff! Resort/Hotel a bit dated. Could use some updating in certain areas.The Baleen restaurant is quite pricey and noisy, but the sunset is really spectacular!
