My girlfriend and I stayed in this hotel 3/12-3/17 and had a fantastic time. Carrillo beach is absolutely beautiful and there are no buildings at the beach (it looks like a deserted island). There are few people at the beach and it is really an amazing place to go. Samara is only a short drive (or bus ride - we took the bus a lot) away and has lots of restaurants, bars, and a marketplace.
The restaurant was affordable and absolutely delicious. Every meal we had was excellent.
Vinny and Zeta are the owners of the hotel and they were great. They were extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. Vinny was even willing to drive us some places if it was on his way or he wanted to go. Melissa, their daughter took us out to show us the nightlife personally.
This was really a great experience and the people at this hotel are what sets it apart. I'd highly recommend it for couples, families, friends, or any other people that want to relax and have a good time.
