is there smoking allowed on balconies and around the pool area?
Dear Mr. Brian, smoking it is allowed on your balcony with the door closed and at any other open area, as long as you are not smoking inside the room or any closed area there will be no problem. Mexican law has forbidden for everyone to smoke in a closed space, you can be charged with a penalty fee for it. Thank you and looking forward to be your host pretty soon! Personal regards, Guadalupe M. Ramírez/Hotel Manager
