The extras included, daily maid service, five gallon water jugs, a Tuesday lunch BBQ, a trip to Walmart on Saturdays to get groceries, free long distance calls from the front room and snorkel gear and umbrellas to borrow for the beach. BBQ available at the pool. We and our friends just love this little place. No vendors outside the door.... More

Portofino. What a mess. My bathroom smelled of sewage. The German man came and put heavy duty bleach/chlorine down the shower drain but smell returned. Other bathroom was ok. If you like roughing it and hiking stairs, go for it...definitely a great view. Do NOT sit in on the timeshare presentation. It is a SCAM. My mom is out 9k... More

One of the few remaining charms of this resort was the fact it was small and didn't have an army of people trying to up sell you if you were an owner or try to sell you a week if you weren't. Now there are more time share (Or vacation club) hawkers then there are guests. The Jacuzzi was ripped... More

We stayed here for a week through a bonus week with our time share. The manager, Andrea and all her staff were super. The condo was a one bedroom with a large bath and living area, a huge patio and the complex has a pool, hot tub and front room. The extras included, daily maid service including wash dishes(!), five... More

This resort spreads out up a hill---not for the weak of knee but every step is worth it for the view. I read a review from someone who trashed the place and note that he says their are 140 steps to the top and he complained about barking dogs and noisy cats. Well, welcome to a Mexican city or just...

This hotel was fairly inexpensive and we were just looking for a clean place to sleep! The staff were all extremely friendly. The location is very convenient. The issues resulted from losing power 2 different times for no apparent reason and when it rained one night outside it also rained inside. The roof leaked!!! Other than that it was a... More

We just returned from staying at this hotel, definitely not a resort. They collect resort tax on the day of arrival. Make sure to bring cash for that, they do not let you pay the resort tax with a credit card. My parents used their RCI time as a trade and it wasn't worth the trade. If you are looking... More
