This place is absolutely horrible. The lobby was nice and inviting, but it is just a ploy to tempt you into its dark and musty halls. The restaurants are completely empty just like the management’s presence. It is however a beautiful views where the mountains meet the sea. Then you glance down at the old chairs, desks, tables, coolers etc....... More

This property is on one of the best beaches in the area. The pool is pretty nice, the view is beautiful but the rooms are of the same caliber of $39 rooms I've visited in Mexico. The most this property should be charging is $99 per night until they update their rooms, beds, pillows, cleanliness, bathrooms etc...

The hotel rooms are very expensive and they are very old, the AC doesn't work, the door doesn't work, at the pool there aren't enough places to take the sun comfortably. The price it's not worth it. Bad service, bad rooms, but experience.

This hotel is very convenient and has a very friendly atmosphere. The rooms are quite big and comfortable. Nice view and facilities. A variety of good restaurants are right in the vicinity of the resort. Good basis for diving or boat trips.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 weeks and think I know it pretty well. The positives: You cannot beat the location of this spacious resort hotel. Right on one of the best beaches in San Carlos. Also just a stroll along the beach away from the Soggy Peso - palapa cantina. This hotel has all the amenities. Many rooms... More

I went with my couple and lots of friends on a weekend.It's very hot in this beach, and the parking lot doesn't have roof, but that's ok if you're planning to stay in the hotel all day. The entrance of the hotel its very nice, big,fresh and nice. We did the check-in very quick, and the bell-boy and the staff... More
