The hotel was nearly empty when I stayed and I enjoyed the peacefulness. The staff was fantastic with a special mention to Sr. Martinez. The pool was empty and a lovely place to relax.
HOWEVER, the place is falling apart, haha. Virtually everything is in need of a serious upgrade. For this reason, it is way too expensive for what you get. I left after one night for this reason.
Location is not that good either unless you rent a car. Be prepared to spend tourist prices on taxis, generally $10. Some will negotiate, others won't.
