(what was) the Bahia , now Ocean Beach - location wise it was excellent - walking distance to the start of San An but still a quieter area
I'm guessing that its more expensive now its under the OBC banner
Xaloc, futher along the bay but still walking distance to the "action" - basic place but quiet and nice big pool
Sol Post - has a hotel & apts but its right at the end of the bay and its a killer walk to the centre of San An
Literally about to book been before as a kid and my family have been back since and food is good so sounds ideal just not risking that walk to San an always using taxi or water taxi if it's still running.
Quark is a form of cheese like a cottage cheese. It's actually really good for you as a meal high in slow digesting protein keeps you satisfied. Must admit though these hotels give you weird stuff stayed in the pacific in San an and we got fish with boiled eggs one night
I second the gran sol. Have stayed in a number of places (with the mrs) in San An and around the bay but last couple of times it has been the Gran Sol. Clean, friendly staff, pool area good and relaxed and it is in a great location - close to the sunset strip (about 5 mins walk) and with the rest of San An walkable. Marina playa is also good in the bay but a bit pricier now it has been renovated. Tripadvisor has reviews on most of the hotels so you should check it out.
