Festival Plaza Hotel
A lot of Mexican beach cities cater to the college age party crowd. The festival Plaza hotel is one of these. The hotel has a center mall with a concert stage and various attractions.
I've stayed in better prisons....
This review is based on the "Rock & Roll" rooms, which connect to the main hotel. They are literally built over the main outdoor patio of the sad & forgotten R&R Taco nightclub. The crappy house/hip-hop blasts out until 3am, and you won't get sleep unless you've passed out. The most insulting part was getting searched every time u wanted to get to yr room. And forget about bringing a date up; if u don't have a wristband, no entrada! All that being said, main hotel ok, staff pleasant....but a poor value for $130/nite, for all the grief
Unique Quality: The Bad:
* Outrageously priced @ $130/nite on in-season weekends.
* Toilet constantly got plugged up. (every time we dropped kids off at the pool, they kept coming back)
* You must have wristband for entrance, and they search your bags for liquor.
* Bathroom door busted up (probly some 18yr old passed out & had to break in the door)
* No TV, no telephone (no big deal...)
The Good: Great Location, Nice multi-level Pool, adjacent Restaurant El Patio tasty.
A Room w/a View
I must say though, even with all my complaining, sarcasm, and joking around, I did like the room we got, especially for the views it offered. We stayed on the fifth floor and were able to see a lot; the Pacific Ocean and surrounding areas.
Directions: On the main drag, can't miss it.
Here's a full frontal of the hotel. Not sure what population they're trying to attract; Disneyland going type families or college aged party goers. You decide. Nevertheless, the hotel is nicely situated on the main boulevard and is centrally located to all the happening spots in town.
Directions: On the main drag. You'd be blind to miss this aesthetic marvel.
Oh yeah, since this was a very organized trip, we hadn't booked a hotel room, so we just had to worry about it when we got there. But luckily for us, the cab driver knew exactly which hotel to take us to. Hmmm, I wonder. Oh well, what could we do with no research done and absolutely no knowledge about the place. So we booked a single room with two beds at the Festival Plaza Hotel for $90/night. Y. and I were to share one bed while Z.Z. got the other.
Unique Quality: Kinda has a cirque du soleil theme to it. Quite festive. Hence the name, Festival Plaza Hotel.
Directions: It's the colorful hotel on the main drag. You absolutely can't miss it.
A Festive Hotel
The Festival Plaza Hotel is unlike any hotel I have ever stayed at. It was multi-colored, had a giant upside-down acrobat over the main entrance, and had a Ferris wheel in back! Oh, and I forgot to mention the giant serpant (or was it a worm?) in the main stage area.
Unique Quality: The hotel is right on the ocean. It is very festive looking, and the price was not too bad.
Fstival Plaza Hotel
$130 USD for 2 queen beds as walk-in guests plus $20 USD per extra person over 2 people.
Unique Quality: This hotel is right smack dab in the middle of all the action in Rosarito...pool, spas, club, restaurants, short walk to the beach. Pretty decent rooms (for Mexico). We had a great ocean view room six floors up, complete with saggy matresses and a bathroom that turned into a pond after taking a shower. Met some people in the elevator that said that our room was a hell of a lot nicer than theirs. I could have lived without the xylophone at 7:00 in the morning right below our window though.
Directions: Blvd. Benito Juarez No. 1207-1 Rosarito, Baja Mexico
