The property is very nice and Christine at the desk is a jewel. However, when I left a pair of capris on the end of the bed (they must have fallen down with the bedspread at nite), they disappeared. We left the hotel at about 11:00 am the next day, and later that day when I was trying to get dressed for the evening, I realized that I had left them there. I immediately called the hotel and talked to Christine who said she would look into it. She checked but the maids were gone for the day and she didn't see anything. She said she'd check the next morning. I didn't hear so I walked over. I personally confronted the maids, one in particular (the shorter one of the two) who of course at this time denied she knew anything. The taller one of the two maids, in Spanish, asked her point blank if she had stolen them. She of course said no even though she is the one who makes the beds. I was promised, by Christine, an email from the manager, Cathy Lopez, which I never got. I called and she never called back. The clothing was not terribly expensive, but that obviously was not the point. They were the only ones, besides a pair of shorts I had for the week. For this reason, I would not recommend that ANYONE stay here.
They are very proud of the fact that Trip Advisor reviewers have responded favorably about this hotel. In fact, they have a very nice letter posted in the lobby. Trip Advisor is how I found them. I say BEWARE--THE MAIDS ARE DISHONEST!!!!!
