    El Hotel esta bien para pasar unos dias en Zipolite, sin embargo le falta renovaciones, creo que en algunas habitaciones ya lo estan haciendo, falta mejorar el landscape, un mejor jardinero/paisajista, hay muchas ramas secas y areas muy descuidadas, al caminar hacia la playa, poco antes del restaurant huele a drenaje, me imagino que ahi esta la fosa septica, pero es muy desagradable. Dos dias de playa nos tuvimos que ir al hotel vecino (Nude) porque no nos permitian abrir las sombrillas para sol porque habia viento, sin embargo en el otro Hotel no habia problema con el mismo tipo de sombrillas, por esa razon nos tuvimos que ir a pasar los dias y consumir en el otro hotel. Hay otros puntos por mejorar, pero escribirlos aqui es bastante. Creo que están dejando caer la calidad del hotel.

    This place is beautiful! The beach is public but gives a sense of being private since it’s at the end of Zipolite and slightly separated by some rocks from the main beach. The staff was AMAZING, definitely one of it’s biggest assets. Finally, the room/cabin is really beautiful, you feel in nature. The only observation I might have is that you also get all the noises from the outside including the room/cabin next to it.

    Great rooms but very bad service.

    The hotel itself is awesome, one of the best rooms I’ve stayed at ( amazing view and private pool) the problem is that there’s no phone in the room to call the office and if you call them to the cellphone that they have, they never answer. The water went off in my room and i called them more than 20 times with no answers, i had to go down to the office and they told me is about to be ready, so I waited in my room. After 2 hours i called again but no answer, I went down to office and the girl there told me “don’t worry about, the water will come back” I had no water for 12 hours and this lady told me this 2 times. The following day i spoke to hotel manager and she gave me a refund for half a day and she apologized. The food at the restaurant is great, and the location it’s beautiful, but the service is terrible. Waiters never smile, there is zero hospitality. Restaurant is open to the public and is often packed, so you have to chase the staff just to be put on the list. This is a beautiful place, but the bad service can ruin the experience. If the bad service changed, this could be one of the best hotels in Mexico. Overall, I do recommend staying here, just be mindful of the bad service. I will stay here in the future, and I hope they can get their staff in line, they could really used some hospitality training.
