Hotel La Palapa is absolutely fantastic! Amazing value and staff. The hotel is clean, comfortable and right on the beach. Vibes are very boho chic, restaurant is great, and the crowd is relaxed. Overall I couldn’t recommend it more. Some other reviews complain about the noise however that was not a problem at all. We stayed 10 days, but I wish it was 10 more. HUGE thank you to Rolando, he is the most helpful hotel manager I could imagine.

We had a great time at La Palapa. It is just what you need while away at the beach. It's right on the sand and within walking distance to everything. Everything was clean and the bed was comfortable.

Amazing! The property is located on the beach with ocean view. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. We were so worried since we didn’t arrange transportation to our next hotel beforehand but the staff helped us with calling the shuttle services and provided us with several options. We also got to watch fire show on the beach as a little surprise!

This hotel was exactly what we needed. It is right on the beach. They put out hammocks and beach chairs every day for the guests. Rolando is the best as well. He organized all of our activities and is extremely responsive.
