“Great ocean views...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Nice hotel, very clean, reasonable price. They have remodeled the two or three rooms closest to the reception...ask for one of those. The ground floor rooms have the best ocean views, as you can sit out on the lawn. Great free breakfast. Nearby Isadora's Restaurant has good seafood, Lucy's Bar has live entertainment.

The staff was very accomodating. The courtyard and lobby are mindblowingly tranquil. My ocean view room, on the ground floor, was awesome. The Bed was (kind of ) soft. But sleepable. GREAT AIR CONDITIONING!! Nice shower. Big screen vizio TV. Free breakfast at Banannas. The beach is STEPS away, The pool was Bathtub warm. Everything is steps away. PLUS A promotional rate of $860 ;peses. About $82 USD.

Room Tip: An ocean view (vista del Mar) on the planta baja. (lowest level)

My friends and I went there for Spring break. It's an excellent place to stay. Safe, clean, near all the town shops and cafes, beach front. The ocean right in front of it is awesome. The pool is really nice and the view is amazing. Plus they just remodeled it and it looks great!

Room Tip: all rooms are really good, it depends on if you like beach front. they are all remodeled.

When we first walked into our ocean view room on the second floor we thought it a bit drab, but then opened the drapes to a stunning view of the beach and ocean. The room was a nice size, and we did spend a lot of time on the balcony in the mornings and at the end of the day watching the amazing sunsets. In addition to the room being cleaned daily, the whole hotel was constantly being cleaned and swept. The housekeeping staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Our maid left four bottles of water for us each day. The pool was beautiful, and again, was attended to daily. The folks at reception were friendly when we initiated contact. Bananas Restaurant had great service and food and friendly staff. Location was great - away from the noise of the clubs and literally steps to the beach. The sound of the waves was loud, but nothing that a set of earplugs didn't fix. By the end of our stay we had grown used to the roar of the waves and it became quite soothing. A wonderful beach front place. A bit pricier than other hotels in Barra but definitely worth it for just the ocean view alone.

Right on the beach, nice mix of regulars, families, and couples. Large price differential for ocean view rooms, which are totally worth it. The rooms are clean, a little shabby, but you're on the beach all day. The restaurant, Bananas, is very popular for breakfast; I suggest combo #2. The pool itself is clean but the poolside area needed to be hosed down...gritty. Staff is very friendly and quickly recognized us and knew our names. Housekeeping makes up your room early and there were plenty of towels. This is not a shiny new place but it fits perfectly with what you want from Barra...if you want marble and glitz, go to Manzanillo or Nuevo Vallarta.

My husband and I stayed four nights here in early December 2008. We were very happy with the location and the room was roomy enough for just the two of us. We were in a room overlooking the beach and it was just beautiful. However, at night the waves do CRASH and it is a consideration if that bothers one. I was okay with it. However, the last night we stayed on a Saturday there was a wedding on the beach and the music was unbelievably loud and thumping til early in the morning. I had brought ear plugs and that settled that problem. The beds are very hard. We went checking out other places to stay in town and all the beds are the same. They don't use two mattresses. After the first night I got used enough to it that I could sleep. I really enjoyed the patio to sit on and read. Very relaxing.
The restaurant, Bananas, was excellent for breakfast. In fact we never went any place else for breakfast. We watched dolphins, hummingbirds and one morning were entertained by a man climbing the coconut trees and pruning them in front of us. They had the best pancakes and my husband enjoyed his regular egg breakfast.
It took a couple of weeks to get the reservation lined up via internet so I would recommend you allow plenty of time for that.
As I said the location was great as we could walk anywhere in town from the hotel. We definitely would stay there again.
