We got a good walk in rate. They had a strange exchange rate. They wanted US cash. I actually was charged more using pesos and still can't figure that part out. They wouldn't take my US credit card. I would have to go to an ATM.
Anyway, we had a direct sea view corner room, 1st floor near the pool. The room was spotless and the fantastic housekeeper even squeegied the balcony doors, inside and out, every day. The bed was comfortable and the towels and linens new and clean. The front desk employees were super nice and efficient. The pool water was cold as ice, to be expected in Nov., the area there was comfortable and a great place to relax.
The subject that came up daily? What is with the washrooms? They are glass enclosed from top to bottom. I felt like I was walking into an observatory room. The cheap shower curtain they have hung on some wire allows you to cover up a section. Talk about wierd. I asked about it and the reponse was always a shrug. Thankfully this was not our honeymoon. It took only a few hours for each of us to recognize the other's code for "go out on the balcony dear"!
A few things to note-the malecon is eye level in front of the balconies on the first floor and people naturally look in. I gave up caring.
Also, use the security bar on the balcony doors when you leave. I feel safe on Isla, but am aware of thefts here and there. Access to the corner room we stayed in would be easy.
Overall, I'd stay here again without a doubt.
