The location of this place is lovely - right on the beach and its isolated. Water was a bit murky in front of the hotel, but you can swim in clearer water in town, which is a 10 minute walk away. Our room was fine (they all have good views), we didn't have the maintenance issues others have written about....

We booked the hotel, unfortunately hotel.com didn't pass the correct booking and we couldn't get the room. They were very nice and gave us all different choice but we just wanted the best room. Even though we decided to leave they were the most accommodating. Bernice has been very helpful and helped me to find another hotel. The hotel is...

Sincerly i spent the most of the time in its nice beach taking advantage of the confortable deckchair and hammocks in the sea.. in the evening you...

The hotel looked nice outside and we were looking forward to our stay. It is situated just on the edge of the busier zone in town, which is nice. On arrival, we see that the hotel is very much in need of maintenance. We had a superior room. The safe didn't work. The patio door was broken. The window frames...

The room is OK and the staff is polite although not English speaking. Not located near the town but it is quiet and peaceful. Need to drive to town for the restaurants or take a long walk. Bathrooms are small and the faucets are corroded. With a few improvements it would be a great place. Great place to relax on...

Don't stay here or at Mahahual. The wifi doesn't work. The concierge doesn't speak English. The room is dated and doors don't work properly. The room door had to be slammed shut with such force that my wife could not do it. The sliding door doesn't work and my wife hurt herself and broke a nail (bleeding). The concierge didn't...
