Me and a group of 5 others stayed in the apartment. The apartment is not located in the main hotel, but 3-4 blocks away. It is a clean and well maintained apartment with more than enough space to fit all 6 of us. 1 room slept 2 on a queen size bed and 1 slept 4 on two twins (one lofted) and a full. The beds were comfortable. Towels and linens were clean and available. Having a well stocked kitchen was awesome. They brought us dish soap, toilet paper, and made sure we had a 5 gallon water jug of clean water.
The water (for showers, sinks, toilet) was out in the apartment the last day that we were there, but they tried several times to fix it and even allowed us to shower in the hotel and provided us with more clean towels and soap. We felt like they tried very hard to address our problem and were very helpful in meeting our needs in a less than ideal situation.
Flaco, Wilson, Francisco, and Mark (the owner) were all amazing, friendly, helped us feel safe and secure. You ABSOLUTELY must have dinner there at the hotel. Carolina's food is to die for and she will make you feel like you are eating a meal at home. We ate dinner there the first night off the menu, all delicious and well priced. That night we talked about wanting some Langostas (lobsters) and Mariscos/Camerones (Seafood/Shrimp) and she went to the market the next morning early and bought them fresh for us. She made the most amazing salad, salsa, and cooked up the lobsters and shrimp to perfection. So amazing!
Definitely will stay again next year!
