Unfortunately we could not see ourselves staying here again. Thus is a family hotel and thats ok if you’re ok with that. However, the premises was dirty around the pool with leaving plastic cups, diapers and other trash. Its unknown how often they cleaned around everyday because we always saw it. You can also smell heavy chlorine as you walk by the pool. The photos from the website are likely photo shopped or from many hears ago because they do not look the same. The beds were box springs and uncomfortable. The good things to be fair. Conveniently located to everything. There are plenty of restaurants and shops. The beach is feet away. The restaurant at the top Mar y Vino is wonderful.

The property is clean and nice but in the older side . With that being said, the AC in our room died and we had to transfer to another room where the air was freezing cold and no way to adjust it. Also, the elevators broke and we had to haul luggage 4 floors down. Two elevators in the hotel and both useless. The service at Mi pueblito restaurants was mediocre and you constantly get interrupted by the street vendors trying to sell you stuff in the middle of your meal. The thing I did like about the hotel was the location, it’s in the heart of everything and the snack bar was great and one of the pools was adults only so that was nice.

The hotel and staff excellent, rooms and bathrooms excellent, bar and drinks great. The restaurant not so good, same kind of food everyday, the cook preparing the eggs not friendly at all, the cook at the snack bar didn’t care if there was condiments for the burgers, some waiters distracted and forgot to bring food orders. We would stay at the hotel but not buy the food there.
