Last time i even tried to stay at this hotel, the experience was absolutely negative. I had called in advance to make sure i had an accommodation secured at this place and when i finally got there my room had been sold (during peak season ) leaving me without a place to stay. The previous owners were much better at... More

The hotel keepers at the time (5/2010), Lalo and Mericela and her young son Erik, were amazing. They were super friendly and helpful.... More

The Manager Cesar Cuneo did not take any responsibility for the event. The thief walked right though the front door of the hotel, it definitely needs more security, cameras, fences and... More
