From before we arrived to after we left every detail was taken care of. Excellent service attention to detail and privacy. The flowers were beautiful, the room was perfect, the pool was very refreshing. Great food and dining right on the beach. Thank you to all the staff for such a wonderful and personal experience.

Mexico City, Mexico4 contributions3 helpful votes
A nice eco-chic hotel with much to improve. Most Rooms are open, I stayed in one of the two with A/C which us nice but felt not perfectly clean. The tapestries and decoration pillows felt uncleaned in years. They offer just cheap shampoo, no conditioner or bathing supplies. The towels and plastic pool furniture are old. The restaurant is very overpriced, 40% more than places outside and food is average: pizza, hamburgers, sandwiches. Incredible considering the outstanding Mexican cuisine. No drinkable water at the rooms. You have to buy or go to the restaurant each time to ask for a glass or buy super expensive bottles. The yoga area is the best with very nice classes but they don’t clean neither the mats nor the floor frequently and in pandemia thats very bad. The chairs and hammocks at the beach are just old and uncomfortable. The place is in a fantastic location and has a lot of potential but it urges a generous investment to improve all the details. The front beach is beautiful, rocky and naturally spectacular. If you want to swim at sea you can do it a few meters ahead.

The food portions were small and expensive. There was a terrible gasoline smell. We waited a ridiculously long long time for food (two hours). All that would have been okay, it’s vacation during covid after all. However, the owner manager was terribly unpleasant — just very off putting, no warmth and not hospitable. Maybe she was uncomfortable with the situation, but instead of being gracious, she was snippy and hostile. We were hungry and it felt like they didn’t care if or when we were fed. It feels like she is simply in the wrong business.

I would like to thank you for visiting our restaurant and enjoying our beautiful setting. Please know that we appreciate your feedback and take your concerns very seriously. I am sorry your expectations were not exceeded. We consistently have rave reviews for our locally sourced & high quality menu, and take great pride in supporting the farming communities nearby, using only the highest quality ingredients available. When our waterfront location, the skill and love of our kitchen and wait staff, as well as the ambiance we've worked so hard to create over the years are considered, we believe our restaurant to be a great value.  I would also like to apologize for concerns regarding the long wait. We were indeed very busy that evening and tried to do our best to get everyone served as quickly as possible. We hope the added discount on the final bill was a small consolation for the inconvenience. 
Thanks again for sharing your perspective and offering us an opportunity to improve!

This was my first time at Present Moment- I’ve been to Troncones a couple of times and always appreciate the kind, welcoming vibe and slow pace. I chose Present Moment for the twice-daily yoga offerings and delicious and healthy menu. I traveled solo and felt very safe throughout my eleven day trip. Present Moment has beautiful spaces including the rooms, grounds, and yoga platform. Emiliano is a yoga instructor extraordinaire- his classes are challenging, intentional, and compassionate. He offers hands-on adjustments and nudges his students to try new poses on a fun and encouraging way. The food did not disappoint - the wait staff are welcoming and the kitchen staff serve up delicious and beautiful cuisine. I had an amazing onsite massage and the team organized my transport to and from the airport and my required COVID test- also onsite. I’ll definitely be back and look forward to another fun adventure and opportunity to rest and rejuvenate. Gracias a Present Moment!

What a beautiful and tranquil place. I had no idea what to expect but as a solo traveler my experience here has been very wonderful. The staff are all super nice. The yoga and meditation are perfect - I especially think Emiliano does a fabulous job delivering satisfying 90 min yoga sessions - in English. The yoga studio which is open air overlooks the ocean - it’s the best yoga location I’ve ever practiced. I also enjoyed a 60 min massage from Tanya which felt very pleasant. Ivan at the front desk is very attentive and organized a kayak lagoon adventure with a local guide, my COVID return test, and the massage. The restaurant on the premises is also very nice with great smoothies and margaritas - it’s a bit pricey compared to other places to eat in troncones but it’s worth it! Also, I love the master suite with the balcony overlooking the ocean and the yoga studio - I feel like a king!
