this hotel, is just that, a hotel, not a resort. There is one outdoor grille for your lunch, I'm not even sure you can get breakfast. There is one restaurant for dinner. They do have a swim up bar. Mostly older folks or people with small children. Other than the ocean, there is really nothing to do. You can catch...

This is not your "party" place. It's quiet clean and great beach. If you're looking to party don't stay here. It's relaxing, good food and top shelf drinks. The service was excellent. My only issue was the evelator in tower 1 which during the day was a wait and see if it would stop. But everyone that works there works...

Traveling by myself, I didn't know what to expect! From the minute I arrived to the day I left, everyone at the hotel was so friendly and helpful. It was so difficult to leave! Ok, so yes the hotel is still undergoing renovations but you have to put that aside and enjoy yourself! The grounds are extremely clean, everyone working...

This hotel is the worst hotel we have ever been too. Staff is incompetent, and the hotel owners couldn't care less about this property. The buildings are falling apart, and undergoing a face lift. Property is at least 30 years old, and has had very little maintenance, air conditioning is sporadic, so is running water, and hot water. A massive...

I was asked by Hotwire to review this hotel after staying there with my wife Jan 23-30 (reservation 5160141988) but they rejected my review because they claimed I had gotten the names of the staff wrong. But I certainly did not! I cannot speak higher of Ana and Elaina (spelling?) who served us at the pool bar every day. They...

Well...the location can't be beat. The hotel is older but is being renovated. They weren't able to give us a room which I paid for (Queen bed/oceanfront/patio) but they tried. We switched rooms three times in the first 24 hours. Ended up with a fully renovated room/king bed/no patio/oceanfront. We didn't have hot water for showers the first two days....

Me and my friend Anna stayed during the first week of february. It was our first time in Mexico, and we really enjoyed it. The hotel is exactly as described, 3 stars. We loved the all inclusive food and drinks. The staff was very friendly. There is some renovations going on right now, unfortunately they gave us the non-remodeled tower...

After a slow first day the staff really shined. We arrived very early our first day. The night clerk let us know that we would have to wait for our room but he did check us in and we were allowed to use all the hotel's amenities while we waited. The small lobby was very clean and modern. We hung...
