I experienced this facility as a time share exchange. And, was very pleased with my time there. It is an older facility, but you have two story accommodations, located on the beach, a restaurant onsite, and friendly people assisting you. My room had a couch, eating area, kitchen, and bath downstairs. Upstairs were the two bedrooms and the bathroom. The... More

Location right on the beach is perfect. The grounds and pool area are well kept and the staff are friendly. The Villa was badly rundown and very basic. It was dirty and everything metal was rusty, including a heavy chandelier on a metal chain, that was covered in rust. Do not expect decent cook ware or a hairdryer. The hot... More

Both saw mice in both places and giant spiders.The furniture was dirty,and the blinds didn't work. The staff... More

Well its a good thing we are campers, between the mice and the spiders it was like a week camping at home! Except for the mouse that ran up my husbands leg in bed! I realize that the setting is a little more rustic and there are plenty of crevices for critters to make their way in but it was... More

The split level villas stand apart from the sterile 15 story neighbor hotels. We have the same friendly staff every year. Best gardens in the área. There is no one closer to the beach. All new palapas add to the old México feel. We're booked for 2016.

Beautiful setting, friendly onsite staff. If you go there with the frame of mind that this a friendly local hotel you will be quite satisfied. But don't expect a resort experience. They had a lot of storm damage last fall but worked very hard to get it fixed up and they did. Wish they had solar panels to heat the... More

The ocean reached the steps of the hotel as we sipped cold, icy Margaritas from the lounge chairs, and the blue Pacific spread out before us like a Mother-of-Pearl necklace. Our "hogar" was not a modern calamity of plastic furniture but a wonderful collection of wooden chairs, Talavera plates and tile floors. The room had a feeling of old Mexico... More

My family of four chose the Villas El Rancho because my parents have been staying there for 20+ years now. We stayed a total of 12 night as we were not able to be accommodated for the additional 2 nights of our vacation due to a medical conference that was happening - we knew this going to Mexico and although...

The Old resort is in a beautiful setting but there is a total lack of maintenance that has resulted in the units having mold in them. We had a problem with the mold and had to leave early becuase my wife started having trouble breathing. This was also happening to other people that were in the unit next to the... More
