We travelled here at night after driving from San Juan. The road to get in was slightly terrifying, but we came for adventure, and this was the only place we had booked for four nights out of our ten day stay. The hotel was perfect for us, pretty clean room, amazing view, we felt like the only ones at the... More

Beautiful spot right over the water, but really needs a new owner to invest. Someone needs to maintain the pool, put up signs to direct the guests, fix the broken closet door/AC/restaurant tables/etc.

I had to rate this place higher only because you get what you pay for. If you want 180 degree ocean views from your room, beautiful landscaping, animals flying/roaming, gentle breezes high on a cliff and a mellow black sand beach below for under $100....BINGO! If you also expect a working ice machine, clean pools, an actively operating all-inclusive resort... More

Stayed in a bungalow, no working water, very dirty no "resort features" Service is horrible and everything closes at 8pm. No night life/bars/restaurants after 8pm, If you want to go out past 9:00pm you need to rent a car, no cabs know how to get to this abandoned motel. The one restaurant they have is overpriced and not that good.... More

So the knocks on this place would be the AC does not work well and the beds are thin and hard. Other than that it's a very nice place, especially for the cost. The bar/restaurant is very nice, breakfast is great, staff goes out of their way to be of service. The pools (infinity and main one) are very nice.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks and even though it was not perfect, it was very good. The room was fine. The king-sized bed was a real large king size and it was one of the best beds we have ever had. The room was clean and there was maid service every day. When the maids forgot something,... More

The location is great overlooking the bay !! And the restaurant staff was very helpful. Other than that very dates rooms , bathrooms are dismal, beds are creaky and old and room was musty. We stayed here (inspite of the reviews) as this was the only place open for bookings (a good indication why)

We were astounded by the way we were treated by management. We called in the evening to book a room and informed the desk that we would be arriving very late in the evening. They confirmed for us the rate and asked that we check in with the registration desk in the morning as they would be closing before our... More

Alright, so before I start, know that I’m a pretty unbiased reviewer. I have a couple of other reviews and I’ve had some pretty good comments on them. Oh, and this is a long review. First, let me break it down for you. This aint the Ritz, Carlson, Hyatt, Marriott, RIU, Hilton or anything similar to it. If anything, this... More
