My husband and I just finished our 4 night stay here and we would both recommend it. The ocean is gorgeous, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and it is close to town (2 km walk or 100 peso ride). The negatives: need more TV stations or on demand options, no wifi in room unless you pay extra, and the... More

This place is beautiful! Everyone is extremely nice at the resort and the housekeeping ladies made something different everyday with flowers from our room. The food was good something for everyone to eat. They have a frozen chocolate drink that is awesome (none alcoholic drink) perfect for the kids. Beach is beautiful everything is right at the beach to do... More

We were very pleased that we were so close to downtown. We rode our bikes there. You can also go to the sister hotel just a short walk down the beach. The Mayan restaurant was one of the highlights if our trip.

I visited this resort with a couple of family members. We had a wonderful time. The food was good, not great but not awful either compared to other resorts we have stayed at.

This is really a 3-star property by the normal scale (that is, not crowd-sourced reviews, but people who actually know hotels). Not really high-end, but not bad either. GUESTS: For whatever reason, this property really seems to cater to Europeans (probably marketing partnerships abroad). Whatever the reason, don't expect to see too many other US guests.
