Playa Blanca is the best! The rooms are spotless, the beds comfy, the Reception staff amazing and the views spectacular! The pool is clean and beach is vacant. You can walk west to Sunsets, which offers great hours, food and entertainment. The walk east is pleasant and peaceful. Carolina, Sal, Cesar and Javier at Reception are welcoming, friendly, happy and accommodating. The are quick to help with advice, recommendations or extra supplies. I can't express how beautiful and breath-taking the views are of the Sea of Cortez!! I look forward to returning next year!

Perfect place off season, for our first visit to Mexico and San Carlos. Overall there was 6 different groups staying in different sized apartments, each one brilliantly appointed, great views, easy access to the pool, beach and bars. Really comfortable, clean and easy to use, no stress. Friendly staff and super location.

Beautiful property. But…stepped on glass in the property pool requiring 4 stitches and ending the vacation. To add insult, management accused me of having the accident somewhere else and bringing it to their pool, which is ridiculous because it was bleeding badly. Additionally our condo had lots of deferred maintenance. Broken garbage disposal, kitchen drawer falling apart, bathroom fan not working, and we eventually discovered the water filtration was not plugged in. Not a great experience. Never again.

Hello Erik, We are very sorry to hear about your incident at Playa Blanca. There should not have been a piece of glass in the pool and we apologize for that. Concerning the treatment from the front desk I was told that when your wife came to the front desk to inform us of your injury, our front desk Manager Carolina immediately went with her to the pool area. She told you that the cut looked as if it required stiches and offered to have Rescate (local paramedics) come to pick you up at Playa Blanca take you to their office from treatment. Carolina also said that you told her you preferred to have your wife drive, so she printed out a google map to make sure you had directions. There were also several guards and HOA representatives at the scene. I can assure you that no such comment that you referred to was made by Carolina or any of our on-site property management staff. Upon review we have no record of you being a registered guest with our on-site property management company Playa Blanca San Carlos Rentals. It appears that you rented from an owner who rents his unit "outside of the system". If you had rented the condo through our company rather than directly with an owner, your condo would not have been in that condition at check-in. And if there were an issue with the unit , you could have simply reported it to the front desk and we would have had our on-site maintenance people resolve the problem immediately. We would be happy to have you as a guest in one of our condos. If you would like to give Playa Blanca another chance please contact Carolina and we will make certain that your next stay is far more enjoyable than the last one.

High rise condo building located an easy drive from town, so you do need transportation. The staff was welcoming and very attentive. As the units are individually owned, I would suggest to the owners that the units should be updated with sufficient non broken dish-ware and utensils, as well as adding basic service items. This may not be an issue in every unit. The large unheated swimming pool is a showcase centerpiece with plenty of chaise lounges as well as beach palapa seating. The property is located on one of the nicest beaches in San Carlos. Uncovered parking, tennis court & small exercise room are the amenities onsite. There is a bar/lounge overlooking the pool, but it did not appear to have a service attendant during our visit. A small curio shop has a few food staples if you didn’t stop at the store on your way through town.

Great place to stay! Front desk personnel are friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Playa Blanca is always working to maintain grounds and cleanliness of building. The pool is clean and large enough so you always have your own space. Bartender is friendly and knowledgeable. Amazing views from balcony. Beautiful beach to walk to local businesses (west) or east. We will be back soon!

This si the best place to sty in San Carlos, great beach, amenities, pool, bar and restaurants walking distance on the beach, great staff, very helpful people. It’s a condominium, not a hotel, you have to provide your groceries, every apartment has a very good and spacious kitchen. There is no front desk service late night.

Such a nice and pretty experience. The room was equipped with everything you need. Amazing view! The pool area is awesome . There are pretty nice restaurant close from the hotel. After we spent couple hours enjoying the sunset on the beach in front of the hotel , we literally walked less than 10 min to the closer restaurant. I still feeling the sand on my feet and the sound of the ocean while we walker to the restaurant. We will definitely come back soon!

The staff was absolutely impeccable. Kind, helpful, instantly responsive. The one bedroom was coazy, perfect for one or a couple. The two bedrooms are very spacious and the three bedrooms are palaces, A wonderful place to visit with a group of friends to escape the winters further north. If you want tropial, January is not the time of year for you.

Great condo in San Carlos. We had a lovely stay at Playa Blanca condos in San Carlos. Carolina and Xavier at the front desk really were exceptional! We woke up every morning to the sound of the sea of Cortez —the view was Outstanding! I think we were a bit off season so the place was very quiet. We love the location, but felt the condo could’ve been a bit cleaner at our arrival. The kitchen sink and the flooring needed a “once over” cleaning. For the value, we would definitely stay there again.
