Arrival was disconcerting and disappointing. The management provided little or no preparation for us, nor were there any touches in the room of grace or welcome. We had to ask for what should have been basics, such as a working refrigerator, working air-conditioning, drinking water and ice. Though those items were corrected, it colored the whole experience as we had... More

This is supposed to be a green hotel and they do try to go by it and it is great. However the cabins were kind of dark, the roof is made of palms, palapa style, they have curtains from the ceiling to the floor to keep mosquitoes away while you sleep, the bathrooms are dark as well and I think...

We enjoyed our stay at Los Machpeches. We had fresh towels every day. It was clean. It has a beautiful courtyard and is close to an inviting beach. But this is Mexico, so set your expectations right: - we stayed in the Dolphin, which is a screened in palapa. It keeps most of the bugs out, but not all of... More

We choose Villa los Mapaches because my daughter, son in law and I, like taking the dog with us... a miniature english bull terrier (sociable and well behaved) so finding a "pet-friendly" place to stay was important. We stayed in the Orange bungalow is closest to the beach and we had lovely early morning swims and Sasha(the dog) playing and... More

We stayed at the Sol y Mar house (which is about a block away from the main complex) for three nights in the middle of February. It was great! We are a family of four with two young girls and it was the perfect size for us with the two girls sleeping on pull out couches in the living room.... More

We just returned from a week at the hotel and couldn't have been happier with our visit. In fact, there was a problem at first, in that we were staying in a large cottage on the beach away from the hotel property (but rented by the hotel) called the Sol y mar. The cottage itself was amazing but for us... More

This is an okay place but it does not include breakfast and does not have the feel of a B&B. There are no special touches that you would expect to find in a smaller lodging. It's more like a Motel 6. I'll give the pro's and con's in my opinion and let you decide. Pros: On the west side of... More
