A nice, large, and clean, air conditioned room. Quiet location on a side street off the main drag. Street taco venders open until very late across the street at the corner. Two blocks (walking distance) to the North end of the Mallecon. A real breakfast included most everytime we have stayed here.

Their location is GREAT. The pool is literally in front of the beach! The hotel is at a great walking distance from all the cool night clubs at downtown. The price is also Ok and you get a small mexican breakfast included. It would be a great lowbudget experience buuuuuut.... I made my reservation 4 months prior to my arrival....

Stayed here with a large group this February and was pleased the location. There is no all inclusive option however. The rooms are basic, but I'm mostly concerned with cleanliness and was happy. Most of my criticism comes from the service while lounging around the pool. Our group is quite 'social' and we found there were long periods of time...

This small hotel is clean and comfortable (basic but has all you need) It is right on the beach with a nice pool and patio. The food is excellent and a great value with wonderful staff. It is a short walk to the Malecon and all the downtown has to offer.
