The hotel was great. Very friendly staff. We got in late and asked for a room overlooking the ocean and got it. The ac is super cold and quiet. There was good water pressure and water temperature. Wifi was fast. Their american breakfast buffet didn't really have anything American on it but was still delicious and had great variety.

The room was very clean, with a big bed and very comfortable. The hotel is in the main street so the taxis and transport is good, but maybe you don't even use it, the aquarium and the beach is very near (5 min. walking). With breakfast. In my room the safe locker didn't work and when I asked for someone... More

I red all others reviews and i'm still wondering if i was not expecting too much.... It's not near a real four or five strars Hotel. I don't know what you will pay for it. Let's say it's a good 3 stars. Not more. There is one thing that really suprised me: there is no information booklet in the room.... More

We were relieved when we were able to switch to this lovely hotel after check out of one of the dive hotels on the beach. The beds where comfortable, the buffet wonderful, and the staff very helpful. Wish we had started and stayed here during our visit. Would definately stay here again if we return to Veracruz.

This hotel has everything and the price is very reasonable. Service is perfect, hotel room very clean and comfortably. We loved the breakfast buffet which was included in the price. The only drawback is that the swimming pool is located in front of the hotel and that you get some noise from the street. To conclude: you pay the price... More

I can't say enough about this hotel. It's not too big...but not so small that your every move is being observed by all. The Service is excellent without being overwhelming as tends to be characteristic in Mexico. The hotel restaurant was EXCELLENT. After eating there on the 2nd say of our stay...we simply couldn't find anything as tasty. It was... More

This hotel is outstanding. I have stayed in quite a few hotels in Mexico and this is by far the best. If it weren't for the all the Spanish being spoken on the TV, you could swear you were in a well run, modern hotel in the US. I've never reviewed a hotel before but after reading the reviews on...

We stayed here for four nights and it's a lovely hotel. The king size bed was very comfortable, the rooms were immaculate and well-equipped (hairdryer, iron, safe, etc.), and I especially enjoyed the "toilet paper" art left by the maid every day. :) The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, and we ate breakfast at the restaurant every day. Loved... More

We spent just one night at the hotel as we had private accomodations elsewhere but it was a great hotel. The people were all very pleasant, the rooms fairly large, clean and comfortable. It is well located, in a quiet area across from the beach near the Aquarium. It is easy to take the bus from there into El Centro... More
