My cousin was getting married at another hotel down the beach, so we decided to stay here to attend the festivities over the weekend. We originally booked two nights, but had to cancel one a day before because of unforeseen issues. I called up and spoke to the person who picked up the phone, first in Spanish, and when I... More

We got married here on November 15, 2015 right on the beach! It was a great setting which the hotel completely set up (decorations and such). We had a dinner right on the beach as well with a great bon fire! The staff at the hotel did a wonderful job serving us and even knew us by name and what... More

I decided to take a short vacation to relax and found this hotel. I read some reviews and all seemed to be good. With no doubt I called and made the reservation. The entrance to get to the hotel is not very visible and no big announcements. I had to use my phone GPS and had no problem to get... More

Terrible experience. After I had to cancel a reservation within the allowed time frame, they said they will give you the money back but they never did. Calls and go back and forward and all I've got so far are terrible excuses. The person in charge is never available and no wants to take the responsibility. Don't even take a... More

This hotel is located in a great place. From the arrival you just forget about the rest of the world, the place is quiet relaxing and the food on the restaurant is good.

I didn't spend a night or have dinner, but I did have a great experience at the bar both before and after a horse ride booked with Diego of Adventure Riding. The beach and grounds are gorgeous, and we were were well cared for while there.

I guess I have to disagree with a lot of reviewers here. My family and stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Honestly, if not for the beach or very nice ladies at the front desk, this hotel would be getting one star. The hotel IS located on a beautiful beach. Can't deny that. First - no hlp with luggage....
