Took a second-floor ocean-view room and were very happy with it. The room itself was attractive, and big, with a blend of rustic and modern touches. Flat-screen tv, extremely powerful mini-split AC, mini fridge, decent toiletries, okay bathroom, colorful textiles and decor. I've read other complaints about the king-size beds being queens turned around. I don't believe that was true of our room, and the taller of us (6'0") was perfectly comfortable. The staff was very nice. We moved hotels after three nights (part of our original plan, no reflection on the VdM), but I left a recharger behind, and they found it and kept it for me until I could retrieve it. (I think I left a pair of shorts, too, but I didn't figure out they were gone 'til it was time to go home.) We loved having the balcony--two comfy adirondack-type chairs and a roomy chair hammock for viewing the goings-on along the street and at the dive pier across the street. Tip: hammock chair is not compatible with any buttons that might be on one's back pockets. I must have ripped off about three. There are some pegs for people who need to dry wetsuits or other things.
If there's any downside at all, it's that it might be a little noisy for a fitful sleeper, and because the lobby is on the second floor, if you're hauling heavy dive bags, you're probably going to be hauling them up at least one flight of stairs.
Amidst all the souvenir stores right downstairs is a nice little tamale stand. We never had the continental breakfast because we had other places we wanted to eat in the mornings.
