I don't know why anyone would criticize this place so vehemently - it is a motel on the edge of town with a rockin' beach bar.
Clean and beds that were comfortable enough. No problems with water pressure in our room, or water temperature. The mini fridge worked and you got a free cerveza with check-in. Really friendly staff.
It's a little walk from downtown but right on the beach. Food was decent and the bar was fun. Didn't go in the pool but it looked ok. Only there 1 night but definitely good for that or maybe a few more days; it's not a resort and doesn't promote itself as one.
