I ate dinner here one night and they forgot to return my card. The next day, they used my card without my consent to withdraw nearly $100! When I called them to complain, they said that it was simply a "mistake".

Although I haven't eaten there for a couple of years, the restaurant is open air with a small bar. When I ate there, the food was good but the mattress on the bed in the room I stayed in killed my back. The Caribe waves were crashing on the very edge of the property. There is a swimming pool which... More

Mine was delicious, but his "lemonade" was ice water with lemons (including seeds) squeezed into it, and no sugar. The same friend who ordered lemonade ordered the same plate as me, rice... More

I stayed at the Princessa by the Sea for 8 days recently, I met the owners who were very nice to me. This was the peace I was looking for. The grounds were full of fruit trees, f lowers, Iguanas were everywhere. The pool was inviting during the evening on the hot days. The Caribe was rolling and it rained... More
