I was just at this hotel on the night of 11-09-12 and 11-10-12
I'm a single man and booked the most expensive room with twin queen beds ($83.00 plus tax $110 a night)
Clean hotel, guest friendly with no extra fee
Right in the middle of the action but the hotel felt very safe
It has a casino, a pool and a bar and the staff was very attentive and alert to people coming and going
Only thing is they were re-doing the lobby so that was a mess
But when they are done they will have a lobby bar, that should be great
As has been said, it is in Malecon so there was a lot of activity
The road out front is VERY busy so it was noisy, even at like 4 am
If you are going as a family looking for quiet and peace, maybe not for you
But as a single man? Or a couple looking for action? Great choice.
No one spoke a great deal of English, so be aware if you don't speak Spanish that you may have issues. However the desk clerk was certainly proficient.
I was having trouble with the touts around the property trying to get me to go to clubs and into taxi's so I talked to a pit boss in the casino and he hooked me up with a great handler that pointed me in the right direction and even went to a couple of places with me at no charge.
He used a taxi that was cheap (Watch out for the taxi's get an agreed upon price before you get in!)
I would strongly recommend it for the single traveler looking for a good time but probably would suggest a place in the Zona Colonial or even one of the all inclusive resorts if I was traveling with kids.
