    Costa Del Mar

    by

    The Costa del Mar hotel is a small beachfront hotel featuring 39 guestrooms. It isn’t really a place for kids or people looking to have a quiet time. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 25, in Mexico with friends and looking to party, this is the place for you. It’s in a great central location: on the beach, within a minute walking distance to Playa’s 5th Avenue, and right beside both a scuba shop and the very popular “Blue Parrot” night club.
    When I stayed in 2002 the place was pretty quiet at night, but they now play reggae music late and loudly into the early morning. This combined with the noise pumping out full blast from the Blue Parrot next door could make it almost impossible to get a decent night’s sleep without getting loaded first.
    I didn’t need reservations here, just walked in and was given a room. (The first night’s room had no air conditioner, but they transferred me the next day as soon as a room with one became available.) It's possible that I may have had my credit card number stolen here--Playa is very dangerous for this.
    I would definitely stay there again if I found myself backpacking through Playa.

    Unique Quality: The rooms are very, very clean and the staff is diligent daily on keeping them that way.
    Costa Del Mar has it’s own restaurant bar which serves good food at reasonable prices--hamburgers, seafood, and Mexican specialties. It has a swing bar, where you sit on swings and run your feet through the sand. The big bartender, who reminded me of actor Forest Whitaker, was a really good guy.
    I liked the simple Mexican wood decor of the rooms--no bathtub in my room though, just a shower. The grounds of the small property are quite beautiful, bright orange buildings with blue trim; tropical planters shoot trees up to the second level.
    There’s a small pool, not close to real swimming size, but good for rinsing off after the ocean and sandy beach. The beach itself is phenomenal! Costa del Mar is a fantastic location, right in the middle of all the action, so many bikinis.
