Not the best place if you want to stay at your hotel all day, but worked quite well for someone who really just wanted a place to sleep in between day trips.
The hotel is not even near the beach, so don't think you will just walk down the street to the sand. To do so you would have to go through the RIU resort which is down the street about a half mile. There are guards there, and with a good story I'm sure you could get through once or twice, but I am not sure if you could get through day after day.
If you are the exploring type however, this is very convenient. Easy access to the highway, like 5 minutes or less to town if you are driving. Very close to Costco and Walmart.
Rooms are clean if basic. I did have some problem with another guest playing music too loud late at night. I went to complain, but noone was in the office that late at night. Apparently they moved the person to another room the next night.
The restaurant/wellness center was not really a factor. In the week I was there, I saw maybe a dozen people eating there, and they may have been employees. Pool was usually deserted too, leaving it for us to enjoy ourselves.
If you do stay here, there is a little taco restaurant about 1/4 mile east of the hotel. Just a little hole in the wall with tables, easy to miss. But probably the best tacos I've ever had. Unfortunately I didn't find it until halfway through the trip, but I highly recommend it.
