“Little paradise. High degree of comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Pie de la Cuesta is a breath-taking destination, and Baxar is designed for that. Beautiful facilities: plants, beach beds. Clean and big rooms.

Few minor points are the food and service. Although it depends. The last days we had an excellent waiter. And food we ordered improved.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

nice ambience, spacious rooms with nice decoration. Kingsize bed with a kind of lounge/sitting area. Waterpressure is not that good in the bathroom but that was not a big issue. Had a good rate through hotels.com with like 50% discount. Hotel is not worth the rackrate they ask on their website. Was able to do the kayak tour that was included for just an hour but would have preferred more time for that. Good thing of the place is that they have a folder in the rooms with different activities to do if you are not familiar with the area.
About the food: not that good and expensive. My guacamole had bearly any avocado, the ceviche had little fish and was drowned in ketchup. For good food better go the Tres Marias for example, a bit down the beach. Service was good and friendly though. The beach is great and the fact that the lagoon is on the other side makes it even better.

Service Was ok but there are several aspects to improve. Food Was expensive and not good. O could not do one activity included in the package and theta didnt do anything about it. I stayed one night more and they ask me for full rate when there was a package 2 nights paid one night free. Price is a bit expensive for service that they have.

Very nice hotel with direct access to the beach. There is music in the beach area, mostly lounge electronic, so be aware of that. Also, if you do not like to hear music in the evening, do not take a beach facing room. The service is excellent, the food is overpriced. There is no air conditioning in the rooms, so be prepared to be hot...
All in all a great experience.

Room Tip: If you do not like to hear music in the evening, do not take a beach facing room.

I have loved this place for 20 years (even back when it was "Ukae Kim"). Funny how one crappy incident can ruin a lifetime of memories. Was there in November with friends, family etc. It seems management can make up their own exchange rates (Dollars to Pesos). It seems the peso is much more valueable at Pie De La Cuesta! Contacted the owner --never received apology, reimbursement, Nada! Usually there 3 or 4 times per year (And never fewer than 6 people with me). We spend money! --Am moving my locale to Tres Marias --Better food--Normal exchange Rates -Better Facilities! --Adios Baxar.

Great hotel, a little bit pricey, but still ok. But the food is expensive and not good at all. If they improved this, I would put an excellent review. The price of the suite is just not worth it. They should improve their service, for example having clean towels for the beach, and better training for their staff.
