Great location

The hotel is very basic when it refers to itself as a "resort". The rooms are small and could use some upgrading but I believe they all have ocean views from their balconies, and it is on the beach within walking distance of everything that you need.Staff were exceptionally nice without any complaint, service was quick when you needed anything.There is only one restaurant for the "all inclusive" perspective and it is mediocre. Save your money and experience the local flair. There are MANY restaurants within walking distance who serve amazing food for less and a much better variety

Awesome place!

The hotel had great pools and great drink specials. The beach is literally right outside the hotel. The prices were incredibly inexpensive on everything. All of the hotel staff was super friendly and the hotel was very clean.

The service is exemplary as always, the rooms are quint, the food is a little lacking but the location is perfect for me all of my favorite restaurants are close by, and the beach is just five steps away!

Great Hotel with an authentic vibe

I loved this hotel and resort because the people were very nice and accommodating. It is the real Mexico, and not to be confused with the big-box boring Americanized chain hotels that are up by the airport. This hotel is in the heart of the Romantic Zone, and is right on the beach. Running and walking is right outside your door. The staff was very nice--they even decorated our room for my birthday! If you expect a room just like the big-box chain hotels that exist in places like Akron, Ohio, and every other city in the USA, then this is not your hotel. If you are open to experiencing a warm and inviting culture that prizes authentic experiences and great food, great people, then this is the place. I feel sorry for the folks who ensconce themselves in the hi-rise boxes up by the airport--they came to Mexico but should have stayed home. Go authentic.
