I picked this hotel because of the reviews. I knew what I was getting when I booked this hotel. It was small and the food was okay. That I could handle. But upon arrival, (I had asked for a ground floor because I have trouble doing stairs, and wanted 2 beds), I was put on the top floor and had... More

The grounds are beautiful. The staff are amazing. The room is mostly comfy except for lumpy pillows but oh well. The food is completely sub par. Pretty much the same thing every day and the options are minimal. I'm not a picky eater at all. The snack shack was so gross most days. I lived off of hot dogs and... More

We spent a week here April 11-18/15. Our first time to Mexico. We were not disappointed. A balcony room overlooking the pool was roomy enough for the 3 of us. Not a large resort but has all the amenities you could want. The "beach party" held one night was so much fun, from kids to adults-everyone had a blast with... More

First of all, calling this a "4 star resort" is being verrrrry generous. This resort is a solid 3. 85% Hispanic guests, 10% Canadian, 5% American or other The hotel grounds and main areas are good. The beach is very nice, and although some other reviews complained about the pool, it was also very nice. The staff and servers truly... More

What a fantastic hotel! The staff was the absolute best - Salvador, Julio (the cricket man) and Ednardo made our trip the most enjoyable we have experienced in more than 10 years! We were always greeted with smiles and wonderful conversation. They were extremely helpful and informative with any questions that we had about our stay and where/what to do!... More

We arrived yesterday and found our room was barely adequate. The adjoining neighbour was very noisy! We were immediately promised a new room in the morning after check out! Today we are told that there are no rooms available! Very rude staff at the front desk- no help- buyer beware!

We stayed here for a week and will definitely be back! From the moment we got there, we were treated well. By the second day they knew who we were and who we were travelling with. This is a small resort so don't expect a party scene, which is why we liked it. The pool was great, the beach fun... More
