    Right next to the beach. The rooms are decent; and equipped with AC & satellite tv. The breakfast was great, and they have restaurant right by the beach. Lots of restaurants nearby, as well as places to buy gifts and local crafts.

    Beautiful place across from the beach. Ocean view rooms were beautiful with an awesome view of the waves hitting shore.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The room was dirty. None of the locks to the doors worked. We found mice in the dresser drawers. We cut our stay short and found a new place. This place is not as advertised and needs extensive work.

    I liked everything about this place. The staff were super friendly, it was clean, the location was perfect, the food was great, I enjoyed the pools. I would love to stay here again but unfortunately the club across the street Oaxanda, plays their music so loud every night until 5am that you cannot get any good sleep. It's too bad, because I really did like this hotel and if it were not for that loud music I would book another stay here.

    Very loud bar across the street

    A bit of a rundown hotel but staff is great. We extended our stay then left on a friday morning because the bar across the street (Cana Brava) plays EXTREMELY loud music all night long. From 9pm to 4am. Couldnt sleep. Dont stay here on a thursday through Saturday!

    Check in was really slow, without attention. The lady on the reception was talking to her colleagues laughing with some personal Things of her not being at all into give a service to the client. The room I booked does now coincide with a pictures on the platform. And they said, you are not the first that is saying it. Personal wasn’t attentive. The only good experience I have in the restaurant which is front and staff in the afternoon was really really nice. But I will never go back.

  • 6.0.Good

    Okay value, if you're a late night owl

    Nice staff, despite limited English. Very helpful. It's basic, got a room with beach views, great for sunsets. Loud music from bars across street. Expensive for condition but clean. Not enough lounge chairs (only four). Expensive for value.
