“Not bad for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

It was a very basic average hotel, nothing spectacular, the bed was stiff but not unbearable. The room and pool were clean. The food in the restaurant was decent. I had no trouble getting my $10 deposit back. The people that I talked to at the office were very nice and helpful when we asked about where things were and places we could eat. We ended up spending the second night at one of the resorts because we got offered a great deal to rent a really nice condo and when I asked to change my two night stay to just one night they didn't give me any trouble about changing my reservation. If you are on a budget this hotel isn't bad.

Worst hotel I've ever stayed in. I was not expecting luxury. I knew there were no elevators, etc and i could live with that. With the amount I paid I was expecting a place to sleep and a place to shower. Nothing more. First of all, don't trust the pictures. Must have been taken years ago when the place was first built. Also, place seems almost abandoned as there may have been oh maybe 2 other guests for the weekend we were there. 2nd night they decided to have some kind of paid event and had a Mexican nortena band play, walls were shaking in our room til 2 am maybe later. Perhaps they should have thought of the PAID guests. If u want to actually sleep in your room don't get a room here because beyond the loud music they also lIke to throw things around in the mornings so after not being able to fall asleep until an ungodly hour, you can't sleep in either. Oh and one more thing. They make you wear these ridiculous green florescent wrist bands to stay in the hotel even tho the only privilege of the wristband is to stay in a [--] hotel. No breakfast no drinks nothing. Except advertisement to the world you are a tourist to be taken advantage of while out exploring the city.

The receptionist (male) was quite rude when we checked in. They ask for an $80 dollar deposit which is returned to you at the end of the stay, but if you do not specify "dollars" on your contract you get "pesos" back. There are NO ELEVATORS and the hotel is FOUR STORIES high, with luggage it can really be tough. The hot water is not that great, it does take a while to get when you take a shower. As far as location, there are not that many Hotels around and the view to the ocean is not great at all.

IF YOU ARE TRAVELING WITH KIDS: be aware that there is a "club" on the weekends i believe . They play loud music that can be disturbing for those in the rooms and they do play adult videos with strong content on a projector screening on the middle patio wall that can be seen from any floor of the hotel, ANYONE can see them and they are videos you do not want your kids to see.

Room Tip: First floors, take less stairs.. NO ELEVATORS

Well telling you about our experience at this place the only thing i can say its that we were amazed knowing how much money we could spend shopping, eating, renting atvs and visiting different areas of the puerto if we stay in a place like this, i think u dont need much in a room if u are at the beach, we dont go on vacations to watch tv, or to heat up food in a microwave, as long as we have a good location and nice service we like it, the pool area its open til midnite wich its awsome and they had wi-fi and since its pet friendly i didnt have to worry for my dogs we all enjoyed this vacation time.

Room Tip: From the last floor u get an excellent view

Checking in was easy and trouble free, room was average but on forth floor with no elevators. Went to pool bar and bartender was very rude non attentive and didn't have a clue about service. Hotel needs to spend time on training and guest services.

Room Tip: keep in mind there are no elevators in this hotel.

The rooms are short on amenities, but for the money they are a great deal. Our junior room did not have a refrigerator and the TV only had 5 channels, some of which were randomly blocked by a message stating that the hotel didn't pay their bill. The location is convenient, it is close to the main downtown area and beaches.
