Spent 2 weeks here, perfect for us.
Joined up with people that have been coming for years.
Staff are wonderful..from the owner Fernando to bar staff, reception to housekeeping. The grounds are immaculate and rooms kept spotless.
We had a King room, very comfortable bed. All rooms are sea view and balcony. Free wifi throughout hotel.
Pool is not heated but perfect for cooling down.
Beach bar…great for sitting around and meeting people.
Spouse golfed every morning, great golf course.They are all totally spoiled by the staff there…ice towels brought out on course, clubs cleaned and stored there after every game. Lovely clubhouse and golf shop. Green course, very well maintained.
We booked for the hotel/ breakfast/ golf.
Walkable distance to town, about 45 mins (not going at full speed due to heat!) Cab ride is $7 to 8 or more if more people in a van type. $7 to golf course too.
Nice beach, small…but many hotels have no beach, just rocks. Lots of sun beds.
Perfect location for viewing the amazing sunsets. Sea is warm and gorgeous colour.
Tip…get into the water towards where the seadoos go in, more sand for the feet.
Great snorkelling right from the beach.
Town is nice. No obvious poverty and begging like in Mazatlan etc. Very safe to walk around. Vendors from store may ask you to come in, but "No Gracias" works. Several supermarkets, Beautiful Square, lots of REALLY excellent restaurants (Kundesa, Kinta, La Mission, New Especias)
Make sure you try the Chocolateria Isla Bella for their amazing chocolates.
Opposite the hotel is the Lobster restaurant where you can pick the size lobster you want. This place has the best key lime pie ever…. from which all future key lime pies will be forever judged.
Right next door is the no 1 restaurant on Tripadvisor at present, Buccanos at Night, open Fri and Sat. Loved it!
It's quiet. A lot of golfers staying there…so up at 7, early to bed. Sometimes the place was deserted by 9pm! Peaceful.
Restaurant very good. Wonderful breakfast (with room), has everything. Good coffee! Many choices and change daily, with a lovely cook to make eggs and pancakes. Service is great.
I had cheese quesadillas nearly every lunch with the the best guacamole and fresh salsa.
Dinner and lunch menus have lots of choice.
There is a spa on the front drive, which I didn't personally use but several people in our group did and loved it, returning many times for massages and treatments.
Also a tortoise enclosure by front doors!
Very reasonable laundry service...just put clothes in a laundry bag and they are returned the next day washed and folded in a basket with a flower!
Front desk very helpful, I arranged an island tour with them.
Definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a golfing or peaceful, stress free holiday.
