I switched to this hotel after having a horrible experience at the all inclusive hotel I originally booked and paid for. I love this hotel! It's very clean, modern and they have great customer service. It's not all inclusive, they only offer free breakfast with your stay but they have an amazing restaurant for snacks, lunch and dinner. The food... More

I was looking forward to staying here based on the Trip Advisors reviews but my linens were not clean, there was a gap around my door that allowed mosquitoes in, and my bathroom was not clean and the water turned cold when anyone else in the building flushed or used water. The buildings were like little apartments with 3-4 units... More

The location was great, though ocean view rooms would have been better. The staff were helpful for the most part just very busy that weekend. There were a few issues with the room (leaking toilet etc) but it was livable. We should have dished out more $$ for the Casa Colonial, next trip.

This is the definition of a nice hotel. Very nice rooms, very well kept, very clean, very good food, friendly staff, excellent facilities, good bar (if you're a drinker, we're not) and generally a very beautiful hotel in a very beautiful hotel complex.

The property is beautiful! Located right on the beach the downside is they don't have any activities, the food only comes from one place and it's very expensive. It adds up.
