Overall, this place was totally average. I have no idea how it got such good reviews. Stay somewhere else! We had cold showers 3 of our 4 nights. We called the front desk and the maintenance man argued that the water was hot. It was about the temperature of the pool. Something was lost in translation. While this hotel is right across from the beach, it's next to a tattoo parlor and some other seedy-looking establishments. The rates for this hotel were completely outrageous for the quality of the accommodations - everything seemed really dated, the shower was cold, the shower didn't have a basin so be prepared to flood the entire bathroom with one 5 minute cold shower. The staff tried to be helpful but most of them (including the front desk) could speak little English. We also incurred charges for drinks at the pool a day we never even visited the pool. We didn't figure this out until after we checked out. Would never go back.
