I stayed here during a budget tour of Mexico. The accommodation everywhere else was fine and I'm not picky, but here our air con didn't work. We were dripping with swear so asked to change rooms & the next room had the windows boarded up! The large man at the front desk was beyond rude and had the worst attitude... More

I stayed at hotel Cocodriillo May 2013 with my girlfriend, and we came back May 2014 for 5 nights. I found the hotel great, the pool was a little small but who needs a pool while the beach is 2 blocks away. The staff helped me a lot on the places where to eat and where to go out at... More

Like so many others, we stayed here as a starting hotel for a tour group. Unfortunately we had booked an extra night before the tour started as well. Bathroom has a bad sewage smell, the AC was very noisy and my wife had bites from the bedding. Also very noisy from the other buildings. Sadly they had a small pet... More

Just checked in. My first impression feels like I'm swimming in filth. The bathroom is uber dirty and the toilet is leaking. My friends in the other room opened up the pillow covers and the pillows looked like it came from the back alley of of a morgue. I'm changing hotels tomorrow.

I stayed there for the new years eve of 2014, they had a "decent" price and its well located near the 5th avenue and the beach. Apart from that I would not recommend this hotel, the pictures you see here are very misleading, rooms are very simple with hard mattresses and pillows (I had a neck back pain each day),... More

I ended and the started a tour at this location. My friend and I remained together for both legs of the trip, so remained in the same room for the whole stay, 2 nights. In comparison to other places I stayed at, I found the accommodation sufficient for my needs. The room was reasonably clean, though being a beachside town,... More

Like many other reviewers, I started a tour here. The room was nothing fancy, and slept in my sleeping bag liner as the sheets were covered in hair and had a few choice stains. Otherwise my room was clean, air conditioner was broken as was the window so I ended up propping it up with a jar of peanut butter.... More

My tour party had us booked into this place and I also stayed the night before. Wasn't a pleasant experience, staff weren't helpful and I didn't feel safe. I wouldn't recommend this place especially to single women travelers

Location - great, right next to the Main Street, banks, clubs etc. Rooms - had a horrible damp/musky smell. Our ground floor room was right next to a staff room or kitchen, was woken up by their noise. The window was also facing that staff area and so couldn't open the curtains to let some light in. Couldn't get wifi... More
