This resort is located on a small bay on the south side of Banderras Bay. It is 11 Km. out of PV away from the bustle of the city. It is great for a quiet relaxing time sunning by the pool or on the beach. Staff are friendly, service is good. As with all resorts, there is a wide variety of tours and excursions available to suite all tastes. The grounds are beautiful,and the backdrop of the mountains encircling the resort is awsome. There are several small boats adjacent to the hotel that are available for $40 and up depending on where you want to go and what you want to do. You can haggle for a better price if they are not buisy .
Food at the hotel was good but not outstanding. I could always find something I liked. A lot of the dishes were Mexican fare , probably because 1/3 of the guests were spanish speaking. About 1/2 of the guests were Canadian and the remainder were American. My wife and I suffered from gastrointestinal problems. We thought it was change of diet and more liquor than normal, but after reading other reviews , I think they need to do some cultures in the food handeling part of the hotel and review their food handeling practices. Rooms and grounds were well kept.
We vacationed there Jan. 21 to Feb.5. Only other complaint was the red eye flight to and from PV on Sunwing air. In flight food was awful and seating was cramped unless you forked over another $60 per seat for premium seating.
