A really beautiful place with beautiful surroundings. The rooms are perfect and clean. Really nice staff and they make you feel special. We really enjoyed the restaurant and in general it was just a nice stay. A tiny bit of maintenance is needed here and there, but it doesn't ruin the experience.

Although the original concept was a good idea, although the location has a good scenery and although the employees try to compensate with efforts to provide good service; in reality the place is very poorly maintained and the owner is clearly someone who needs better ethical and business standards. She keeps the tips for herself and she would not provide an invoice (I assume to avoid paying taxes).

Pros: - Closer than Acapulco if you drive from Mexico City. - Placed just between the beach and a huge lagoon. - Nice rooms, with internal pool. - Good Wi-Fi. - Restaurant was better than expected. - Kind staff. Cons: - It is pricey considering that the facilities are good but not great. - It is strongly advisable to arrive and depart during the day, because the hotel can only be reached by driving through the sand. - You have to request and wait for a parasol if you want to be on the beach. - Does not have a gym. - Internal pools are not heated. - According to waiters, hotel owners would keep any tips left with credit card. I would return, but hoped there were better options to stay at if you want a beach setting in Tuxpan.

First, you can find this great place at: LAT 21° 4'6.86"N LON 97°21'10.27"W THE GOOD - This is a beautiful place, lots of grees areas - It has two outdoor pools - One pool faces the ocean, the other faces the lagoon - The swimming pool that faces the lagoon is right beside the restaurant - The rooms facing the ocean are perfect - The rooms facing the lagoon are almost perfect - The rooms in the middle are, ok. - Each and every room has: + King bed + WC + Small desk + Shower + Outdoor bath tube (wonderful) + Outdoor swimming pool (private) + Outdoor place to relax at on a bed or "camastros" + Outdoor table to have breakfast, food or romantic dinner + Safe, iron and hair dryer + TV with plenty of channels + Radio and ipod connection for your own music - Always hot water (it takes a while to get hot, but it will) - About the food, the chef is really good, Rodrigo is outstanding, trust him - About the restaurant service, excellent!, Guillermo is always prompt and kind - About front desk, perfect. Both workers always ready - Security: All personal is always checking if everything is ok - Personal is always checking on people in the hotel - The price per night is US$ 194.00 dollars (worth every penny) - It is more a lovers and couples hotel - It is relaxing, far and not crowded - If you wish not to drive back to downtown, there is a marine taxi that will take you free of charge and program your return if you are a guest. - It has a small auditorium, maybe for 40 people at the most that could work as conference room or so. Wifi always and good signal. THE BAD - To get to the hotel you have to drive for about 1.5 miles over the beach, it feels a little dangerous the first time. Second time is great, then is normal. The car dos not get stuck on sand, as you are driving on the humid zone, between the ocean and the dry sand of the beach. - The government had promised for years to build a road, but it has been just promises, so, the hotel has a hard time renewing or taking care of all expenses and maintenance. The hotel is GREAT, but the manager needs to choose between the urgent and the not so prompt matters. - It is 20 minutes away from downtown - The parking space is small and feels kind of too close to the sea. (never got a problem, but you feel a bit worried) - Poor signal reception of TELCEL TIPS: - Take snaks and a bottle of wine, brandy or whiskey to your room, order some food and start your own romantic evening that will last all night. - You can go downtown and ask for your food when you get back at your room, they will make your table, put some candles and many other things. So, this is the place to be. What are you waiting! Go!... now!

Isla Tajin Beach & River Resort is a beautiful, tranquil place to visit. Surrounded by water, bay & mangroves on one side & the ocean on the other~ it offers breathtaking sunrises & sunsets. With three separate styles of rooms to offer (all offering their own private pool), you are sure to find your peaceful place whether on business, a romantic get away, a family get together or an incredible Destination Wedding. During my stay the staff were delightful and the rooms were immaculate & relaxing. The Chef is very personable & accommodating to any taste or diet you might desire. The meals he prepared during my stay were beautifully & artfully presented as well as some of the best food I have ever eaten. I highly recommend this resort & I look forward to the day I can return!
