Just had a quick jaunt down to mexico from Texas and thought it was fabulous. To address a few of the previous reviews - The hotel is beautiful in an understated minimalist boutique way , so if your looking for gigantic overstuffed rooms and bathrooms with excess everywhere then this isnt the place for you. Probably not the best choice for families with young kids but then not many 'boutique' hotels are. Yes the hotel can be noisy at night - and the reason ? because it is in a prime location slap bang in the middle of ALL the life and energy on the main street, and a stones throw from the beach front ,so of COURSE it is going to be noisier than some of the hotels on the outskirts, especially since this is a much smaller hotel. You hear Mariachi, you hear people in the restaurants around, you hear laughing and singing, people dancing,drinking, enjoying themselves, walking from the beach. But isnt that why we go to Mexico? Of course it all dies down at the end of the night anyway, and honestly sitting on the beautiful balcony of this hotel room, looking at the ocean view, and watching and listening to the world go by below was truly an amazing highlight of this trip. Top that off with the staff being super friendly,and accomodating (and curiously all like supermodels as a sidenote?) , mixed with the complimentary breakfast at the stunning Indigo Beach, it all boiled down to a great trip that I would, and will, repeat again soon.
