Overall this was a really nice resort. The entire staff was friendly and helpful and the resort overall was very clean. We had an excellent experience from check in to check out. My only complaint was that our room felt dated and it would have been nice to have a fridge for our water and beer that we picked up on the way. The fridge was stocked with nothing we would eat or drink. However.... the rooms were spacious and we liked the floor plan. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We had plenty of towels and they were nice big thick towels. Read less

Exceptional time at a great hotel. Friendly staff who are always willing to help. Incredible views and awesome beach. Food at Baleen's is great! Not light on the wallet but better value than the Ritz.

Since we are land locked in the midwest we wanted a warm beach vacation. Covid kept us from Mexico so our travel agent recommended LaPlaya. We stayed 4 nights and never encountered bad service, or saw any employee in a foul or rude state. Valet is a well oiled machine and the concierge desk helped us on two occasions. The front desk and bellman were quick and helpful. The bar staff at the Tiki hut and wait staff on the beach were amazing. We stayed in room 308 and had difficulty with the water temperature. It was either scalding or cold, nothing in between, but the view made up for it. We enjoyed the breeze off the water and the sunset every night. We had to leave at 5:30 am for the airport and after speaking with the valet the night before, our car was waiting for us when we came down. The only complaint we had was the food prices. I'm sure they are comparable for the area, but were a bit too rich for our blood. We just went out exploring for supper and was never disappointed with any choice. Read less
