Sleeping in a mini jungle
Hotel is located right beside 5th Avenue and very close to the beach. It really is like sleeping in the jungle but just much more comfortable. Staff is very friendly and do a great job cleaning everyday. I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a different experience than staying in a traditional hotel room.

Great location but may be too rustic for some
I arrived at 11:30 pm and the hotel was locked. No proprietor in sight. We ultimately got hold of the previous owner who came from his home to let me in. I did not see the proprietor the ENTIRE time that I was there - and I stayed for 5 days!!!! The hotel was basically a ghost town...nice in some ways that it felt like I had the entire place to myself. The room set-up was a bit awkward - as I did not realize that the bathroom was on the first floor and in order to get to it I had to go outside and down the stairs to reach it. A bit sketchy in the middle of the night. I learned the first night to make sure to wear my flip flops, as I had to walk through the dirt and to turn off the light in front of the bathroom as it was a beacon for every bug in Mexico and I was savagely attacked that first night! It was very rustic - the bedroom was comfortable, but there was no place to set down a computer and work (I was traveling on business). The bathroom shower was wide open to the sky (very nice in many ways) but a little unnerving as there were buildings around and it was not totally private. The shower itself was rather cool as the water flowed out of a length of bamboo. Maid service was very good- never saw them, but every afternoon when I returned to my room it was very clean. I wish they pulled the fallen leaves out of the shower however as it started to block up on day 3.

Beautiful but a little uncomfortable...
The hotel is beautiful but need maintenance.It's rustic kind hotel. You really need to love being into the jungle but next to the beach to like this place. It has no A.C.and mosquitoes will be eating you if you don't use repellent. All employees are very nice. It's also very noise but as most of the hotels at Quinta Avenida.Hotel has a perfect location, beautiful setup but yes they need to put an effort to improve rooms maintenance and of course hotel beach is a must. I do like my stayed here but I will be back only if they improve things.
