I agree with lima5678 that this hotel is in dire need of a change of management. It has the basics to be a great beachfront property, but a lack of leadership and care undermines this. First, the positives: - the location right on the beach is beautiful, and we spent many happy hours in the sea. It is about a... More

We stayed here for 6 days in the off-season in March, fully aware that it was a fair distance from any shops or other infrastructure - and we were more than satisfied. The rooms and bungalows are 20 metres from a stretch of beach which is probably one of the most unspoilt around Mancora - absolutely perfect for a relaxing... More

We got a package for 2 nights through Groupon. The hotel is very hard to get and their facilities and food are not good enough to use them the whole day.

They had trouble finding my reservation, limited hours for serving meals at the restaurant, limited options from the menu, pool small for all the people at the hotel. Playground needs maintenance urgently. A lot of flies at restaurant tables.
