I found this decent hotel, with swimming pool and restaurant, for $400 pesos a night single. Just don't expect a Mexican experience. There are a lot of older... More

My wife stayed here for 2 weeks while on a Global Village Build in the area. Firstly and the ONLY bad thing we would say about the place was her rooms proximity to a Bar across the ally. Once I arrived she joined me on the opposite side of the courtyard and it was much quieter. The service was fantastic,... More

This hotel is nicely located in a funky neighbourhood near a great surfing beach lined with good, inexpensive restaurants. The rooms were very basic, but clean. That's the good news. The bad news is: the pool was NASTY, so dirty you couldn't see the bottom. The day we left a young man was cleaning the scum ring with a cleaner... More
