The best value is the ocean-view rooms. The balcony sliding door opens wide creating a brighter & more expansive space. We thoroughly enjoyed the views at all times of the day. Our room was spotless, came furnished with a large mini-fridge, the AC was strong & the shower ran hot.
Downsides to the unit we stayed in: one of the double beds creaked obnoxiously with every movement, the hotel offered only one key card, no hair dryer or iron & the shuttered-style door and bathroom window allowed mosquitoes & sounds to enter the unit. We found the best way to combat the mosquitoes was to keep the bathroom door shut at all times. Light sleepers will need earplugs.
Rosita is located at the start of the Malecon, offering access to the boardwalk, a 5-minute walk to 5 de Diciembre & a 15-minute walk to Zona Romantica.
Our voucher for the continental breakfast came with one fresh fruit, a sliced baguette with jam, a small glass of orange juice & coffee. We paid out of pocket for eggs and chilaquiles but were not impressed. We skipped the free breakfast for the rest of our stay. I recommend visiting restaurants and cafes in the 5 de Diciembre neighborhood for a tastier meal.
The happy hour drinks were a good value, two strong drinks for 99 pesos. The kids often monopolized the pool, so we spent more time at the beach. Instead of venturing to Zona Romantica for the beach clubs, we walked 5 minutes to Mango Beach Club, a relaxing but attentive beach lounge, on the Playa de Camarones.
