Location cannot be matched. Hotel grounds are beautiful. Recently renovated, and it shows. Resort fee actually includes things you want, like beach chairs, umbrellas, and tables. Laid back but elegant.

If you want a relaxing getaway, I highly recommend the LaPlaya Beach Resort. Excellent service, clean resort with beautiful grounds. The sunsets at night were amazing from the Baleen bar area or the beach. Friendly staff who took the time to care about their guest. Can't wait to go back!

We had a most delightful Mother’s Day brunch with my daughter and baby grand daughter! First, as you walk in, the restaurant has a breath taking view of the beach. And the food was superb! We eat healthy and the prefix brunch menu had something for everyone. They also accommodated our gluten allergy. The Lemongrass Crème Brûlée was the absolute best we have ever had!!! Chef Mounir and his team outdid themselves once again with this special new menu! The service was outstanding. Ana, our server, was attentive and caring. Maura, Manny, Heather and Alexis all ensured our experience was a special one. Thank you all for a wonderful and memorable experience. We are already planning our next visit! Read less

I’m not sure how there is any negative reviews. Had an amazing time all around. The staff is friendly & responsive. Usually ordering food from the beach takes a long time, they were as quick as ever each day we ordered !! Views were awesome as well. Highly recommend

The staff and location were both excellent. We were on a business trip and added a couple of extra day and they allowed us to get the same conference pricing. The location is a 20 min Uber ride from 5th and 3rd don't plan on biking.
