This was the worst place we have ever stayed in for the price we paid- my daughter was playing with someone's old ear plugs, that's how disgusting it was! The bed broke just by sitting on it, and the place was old and run down. When we arrived there were people sitting around drinking and playing heavy metal music. We... More

Villa blinds were missing so no privacy but it was cheap overnight stay for my family of six. Overall clean dry place to sleep. If you want luxury this is definitely not the place to book. Hasn't been updated since 1970's. It is very close to the entrance beach and the lake.

This is my second visit to the The El Largo Tourist Park, located on the waterfront in The Entrance. The location is great. Shops, cafes and restaurants are within walking distance. There is a bike / walking path right out the front which offers a very pleasant outlook. The ammenities are old, but clean and tidy. Not at all fancy,... More

Absolutely disgusting noisy with disrespectful guest staying in villas. Staff have absolutely no control. Adults & children still walking around & riding scooters at 2:30am right outside your window, even had children peeking in my window at 1am.packed up my children & demanded a full refund on a 3 night stay after 1 terrible night.

I wish there was an option to give no stars at all. This place was disgusting. Filthy, reception staff do not care. Over priced. Filthy. Old. Stinky. Filthy. Noisy. Beds as hard as rocks. Filthy. Needs to be bull dozed. No privacy as all the blinds are broken so people can see straight in. I would NEVER stay here again.

This place is not worth the money and is disgustingly dirty! Lights don't work, carpets are filthy, there is no clean amenities. Mound on the verticals. Lights don't work. Take disinfectant wipes - you will need them!! Do not stay here even though the location is great you WILL not enjoy your stay!!!
