It was a nice one night stay, however, the food was OK, notthing special, kind of delayed the food service. I heard from one of the workers they were changing administration. This is the reason why the expected service was not satisfied.

There were flashes of brilliance! This hotel is beautifully appointed. Big clean rooms with ocean views and incredibly helpful staff. Gorgeous grounds. Three star rating stems from truly horrible food available from the onsite cafe, no truly hot water, mold in the jets of the bathtub, and no wifi available in the room. I really wanted to give a higher... More

I enjoyed this resort for its location. The beaches, while not the nicest I've seen, were great to walk & run on. It was quiet, and there were good beachside chairs & cabanas. The room service food was horrible- and there isn't much locally for fine dining. Also, the water temperature for the bath & shower was lukewarm. Wifi was... More

We stayed here to celebrate our 2nd anniversary, this is a pretty good hotel at a very reasonable price, although is not easy to get there once you do, you can totally forget about the city, no cars, no lights and zero noises!! We took one of the suites and believe me, they have the best bed you can ask... More

The hotel is very small but comfortable. I went with my fiancé and we have a great time. The SPA is beautiful, a little expensive, but the TEMAZCAL was grateful. All workers inside are so kind, they were always asking if we need something. They exceeded our expectations. The girl that gave us the TEMAZCAL loves what she does and... More

I expected a quite Resort&Spa hotel and got a noisy Family place..... Very small room with a Jacuzzi in the bathroom which never worked, no hot water, a coffee maker but no coffee or cups (also not after mentioning it at the front desk) and a locked up minibar. The pool was invaded by screaming kids and not enough lying... More
