San Carlos Plaza Hotel, Resort & Convention Center

$$ | Paseo Mar Barmejo Norte 4, San Carlos, 85506, Mexico

Rising from Bahía de San Carlos, this huge resort is the most luxurious lodging in Sonora. The arresting atrium lobby opens onto a large pool and beach. Pleasing rooms—all with at least a partial ocean view—have contemporary, if uninspiring, furnishings. Rooms on the first two floors have balconies overlooking the sea. Children love the swimming-pool slide and horseback riding on magnificent Algodones beach.

Pros

  • Elegant public areas
  • Breathtaking beach

Cons

  • No flavor of the region
  • Caters to many conventions
