    One of my worst experiences

    The hotel is very noisy from the inside and outside, couldn’t sleep and had to check out after the first night

    It was Just Ok

    It’s a great location in a very busy area. Lots of restaurants around. We did get a partial ocean view room, but we didn’t get the view of the ocean. Instead we had a newly built wall where they made new bathrooms for the new restaurant there. But we did have a huge balcony with table and two beach beds which was nice. Also the room was next to room 144 which has been converted into a hallway for employees to access the restaurant. So all day and all night you hear one the door slamming and two the employees walking in and out. Secondly since the public restroom was next told you could hear everything that was going on in there.

    Would stay again

    The staff was amazing! The spa was amazing! Pool, beach and restaurants were amazing. COVID test was a breeze. The check in took sooooooo long, they need a very different system.

    Loved

    I loved this place. It wasn't a huge resort but it was no small hotel. You could feel people had been enjoying themselves for a long time at that property. The value in the deal we got was unbeatable. The location, a 10! bartenders, beach servers, and male concierge(forgot name) were also a 10. My only complaint is we had no hot water in our shower and check in desk is under staffed. I never said anything because I jumped in the ocean and there were showers everywhere, Im pretty easy going.

    I loved staying here. Lots of things to do in waking distance. Staff was very friendly and was able to help me out a few times when I needed help. I had lots of luggage and they helped me carry it to the room and back down and got a taxi for me when it was time to go. I loved the pool perfect for little kids or older. I would definitely stay again. I didn’t do all inclusive because I like to see the city. No cons for me only pros. Oxxo store that is open 24hrs on the corner. Right on the beach, Next to Panchos tacos, and right off the malecon.

  • 8,0.Very good

    Stayed for the weekend. Nice small hotel with all the basic necessities. Perfect for the short stay. Most of the rooms face the middle which over looks the pools. I like that it was easy to get to the pools and the beach from the rooms. There are 3 pools in the middle which all get some decent sun and shade. The beach is right there, easy access by the restaurant. Lots of areas to walk around and stop. Great location. You do have to go to the beach to get towels which can be used in the pool areas too but it closes at 4 so if you plan to go swimming later save your towels. I didn’t know about the towel thing so when the kids went swimming later after dinner I asked the front desk but the guy was not willing to give me towels. Had to ask for the manager who was quick to give us what we asked for. Beach closed at 3pm due to Covid regulations. You can still walk on the sand. Good eating locations nearby. Lots of choices. The room was clean and very pretty hacienda style. Beds were firm which I liked. Pillows were soft and comfortable. Good experience. I would stay there again.
