The view from our room was excellent along with the views from the swimming pool, bar and the restaurant. If you are elderly, pregnant, have arthritis or other health problems, you will have a hard time going to the swimming pool, bar and the restaurant which are situated at quite an elevation from the rooms. We were very happy with the breakfast, it was fresh. You have to eat the sea bass ceviche they serve with the fried plantain...delicious and soo fresh. The drinks are good too. There were lot of bugs in our room roaming around and the bed had bed bugs that got all of us and we had huge bumps all over all bodies. The day we checked in, I told the management about the bugs roaming around in the room, and the management did nothing about. They said the bugs were harmless. The air conditioner was extremely noisey, so if you are a light sleeper, good luck to you. The hotel rooms needs TLC and upgrades. The The closet beach is at a steep decline from the hotel, and is not a swimming beach. The beach couple of miles down is beautiful.
