    The staff were very nice and eager to help when we requested something. Even though we don’t speak Spanish we managed to get along with them. The location is also fantastic in that you are on the beach as soon as you leave the hotel.

    The rooms themselves, while clean, left room for improvement. There is no warm water at all here. The windows and doors do not close well, and as it gets very windy at night, continuously shake and sometimes even slam. Our shower’s ventilation basically amounted to a hole above the shower that lead almost directly outside aince we had leaves and feathers coming through it. Finally, because of this direct hole to the outside, the music that blasts until 4 AM is so loud in the room that we could not sleep properly even with ear plugs.

    Meals included were lovely and filling, restaurant staff were friendly! Favourite is Mojarra al vapor con arroz de coco.. Terrace was beautiful too

    Reception staff were a nightmare from the get go, we were made to move rooms 3 times in 5 night stay evwn though they knew my friend was terminally ill. We ended up leaving for NYE and staying an hour away just so we wouldn't have to face their glares as we walked past reception, would NEVER stay again.. which is a shame as there are some nice aspects to staying here.
