    Una experiencia satisfactoria en general.

    El hotel en lineas generales es acogedor y lindo, sin embargo la estructura como tal no diria que esta en perfecto estado... se ve que ha tenido algo de desgaste y que hay algunos defectos de diseño... una de las camas estaba rota aunque igual no la necesitabamos... igual que en el baño habian algunos defectos de diseño

  • 8,0.Very good

    La malla que existe separando la playa del hotel quita hermosa visibilidad desde las habitaciones. El personal no es muy ágil, Aunque te ayudan bastante a organizar tus planes durante esos días. El Sr Jose es el más colaborador de todos. Muy buena limpieza de la habitación. El refrigerador no lo entregan abastecido por si se desea consumir algo sino que hay que ir solicitando. No es muy constante el servicio de taxis
