This hotel is very well located with being only about one block away from the beach and half a block away from 5th AVE. IT is also like only four or five blocks away from the major bus stop that brings people in from the airport and surrounding areas. The hotel was clean but had a few issues. Our room... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights before travelling on. The hotel was clean and our room spacious. The pool was clean but the furniture around the pool was tatty. The location is excellent 1 minute from the beach and 1 minute from the action on Fifth Avenue. This is not a 5 star hotel and you don't pay... More

That's a simple, cheap and very well located in Playa. It was our second stay in this place and the only one complain is about the shower it isn't work properly. So the others points are already commented here. No elevator, long stairs... But the prices and location. Make it worth.

This hotel is in a great position but is let down by the total lack of any management. The staff appear to have lost all interest in the hotel. It is reasonably clean but need maintainance vedry badly. The breakfast restaurant next door is good though.

This hotel's website would make you believe that you will be staying in a delightful romantic boutique hotel. The website photos must have been taken ten years ago. It is a typical run down hotel. We had cockroaches in the room, an A/C unit that broke and we sweltered in the heat all night before being moved to another room... More
