We're recepted by one person Mr Victor, who afirm to be one attendent and the maneger. I ask to adpter to eletricity because the plug in MEXICO is different. This person said to me that this hotel don't have it, because there are only 4 adapters and all of then were in use. So He said to buy one because this adapter isn't one part of my book... I´m very sad about this but this hotel is old. the swmming poll are some holes, the port of my apartament didn't have securrity, in my apartment the safe box were brouken and the bathroom ceiling had leaks. Breakfast is about a 7-10 minute walk away since the restaurant has moved and the menu is either scrambled eggs with beans or a baguette and jam. TERRIBLE!

Initially we have booked our stay at another hotel of Xperience group in PDC, i.e. Hacienda Paradise. However, once we have come to the booked hotel we had been informed that due to overbooking our hotel had been changed to Illusion. Positive points are as follows: - the hotel is really close to the beach; - it’s clean and neat; - the room assigned to us was big and spacious; - wifi works properly and there’s no problem with video calls, fb and instagram posts, news watching; - the 5th Avenue is just few meters away. However, some negative points exist: - breakfast is served in a cafe. some time ago this cafe was situated just in the building next to the hotel, now you have to walk 1 km or so in order to get the new place for breakfast. breakfast is not variable at all: you get unlimited coffee/tea, a glass of juice, a tiny piece of cake with fruit salad and chilaquiles or scramble eggs of your choice. The cafe itself is really small, but breakfast for two hotels (Illusion and Hacienda Paradise) is served there. So, you may have to wait for a significant period of time (about 10-15 minutes) to get seated - our room was on the 4th floor and during 3-4 days of our stay the elevator was under reparation, so we had to climb the stairs several times a day. It’s not extremely pleasant when you have a knee injury. Additionally the ladder is not properly lighted at night and you have to switch a flashlight on the phone if you come back after it gets dark; - the swimming pool is really tiny. The water there is at the knee-level of an adult. Moreover, there’s no shadow near the swimming pool, so, that’s impossible to relax at noon, if you do not want to get burnt. All in all, that was okay, however, there are some improvements to be done. It looks more like a 3* hotel

This place in middle of everything. Close to the beach and 5th eve however this is a hotel not resort. Close to the beach only thing I didn’t like their swimming pool. It is dirty and you can’t swim there. It is more like motel but it is clean and close to everything

We decided to stay somewhere near Coco Bongo since that’s where our excursion tour was picking us up and it was cheap. It’s very close to the main strip which was great! I would definitely say if you’re not planning on staying at your hotel and staying out then this might be a good spot for you. However it’s outdated. The elevator had no light, so at night you are riding in the dark. Bring a fire stick because there are no channels in English. The bed is hard. The pool was under repair the entire time so that was a bummer but the view is not that great as it appears in photos. Breakfast is about a 7-10 minute walk away since the restaurant has moved. Apple Maps hasn’t registered that they have moved yet and there was a language barrier with the directions but Google Maps has their location updated. It wasn’t until the second day they printed out a map of where the new location was. Breakfast is either scrambled eggs with beans or a baguette and jam. If you’re trying to get some beach action….. look elsewhere. The beach is just sand. Not swimmable.

The service is great. Everyone was super friendly and helpful! Worth the stay for that. Armando and Flora were especially helpful throughout our stay. Location is close to everything but not loud and just steps from the beach :)
