The reasons why I think the Marisol Boutique Hotel is such a good deal is because you get so much for what it costs per night and the hotel staff goes way out of their way to make sure you have what you need. When I arrived, Marisol herself was working the front desk and she asked if we wanted beach chairs and beach towels, which she gave us free of charge. There were also a couple of balcony chairs that were not being used, so she offered those to us (free of charge). It was so relaxing to just sit there and see the sparkling ocean from our balcony. When we got into our room, we discovered that the kleenex box only had one sheet left in it and we needed a backup of toilet paper and an extra bar of soap for the shower, so we went to the front desk and they gave everything we asked for with a smile. Marisol herself is the friendliest of the front desk staff, but none of the other ones were too far behind; at the very least they were all cordial and helpful. One word of warning: they don't know all there is to know about the busses that pass by and which streets they go down, but they at least they told us that if we want to take one downtown, that we should look for the one that says "Mega" (the name of the big nice supermarket across the street from the Marisol Boutique Hotel); the truth is that almost any of the busses that come down the main street will take you downtown. We got into the habit of asking the bus driver "Este camion nos lleva al centro, ¿verdad?" and that way we took the guesswork out of the equation. Getting to a restaurant called "De mañana", which is well worth checking out, is a little trickier and we found that Bus #2 was the one that took us there, but it's best to ask the bus driver "¿Este camion va por la calle Pescador?" to be sure. Getting back to the Hotel, the shower was always hot enough, even with a long, extended shower, the TV had 4 HBO channels, CNN, a channel in English with American sitcoms and one local channel in Spanish (Televisa) with a lot of soap operas. There were plenty of outlets in the room, although two of them were behind each bed and you had to pull it out a little to access them. There were high ceilings and a spaciousness that I appreciated. The beds were comfortable. There was a glass table with two chairs where we ate when we ordered take-out. The dressers have more than enough space in them, but watch out for the protruding nails inside. There is a closet next to one of the beds, but you have to sit all the way to one end of it in order to open it. The mini-fridge was a little bigger than most and was empty so we filled it with our food and beverages. They change your sheets once every three days, but clean your room, dump the trash and make the bed every day. This is not a party hotel and the office staff will tell you that if there is a problem. Although we never had a problem with noise from other guests, there is some noise from the neighborhood and almost every night we heard a low to moderate decibel level alarm go off from a local closed business between 11pm-midnight but it went off by itself after about 15 min. In spite of these few negatives that come with the territory, the Marisol Hotel is one of the best bargains we've ever had (less than $70 a night in December of 2013) and we'd go back there in an instant. It's very safe to walk around the area even at night. Great experience overall.
