We weren't sure about staying here as there were some mixed reviews. I would definitely come back to stay here, but I will definitely bring a car. It's not easy to get to (a 5km walk from the centre) so not too practical to go and get a quick bite to eat. Also, the restaurant at the hotel is pretty over priced, especially for drinks (70 pesos for a glass of wine!). The food is fine, but better food is available in the centre, hence the car.
The rooms are in need of a bit of TLC but we didn't spend that much time there so it wasn't a problem. We were originally assigned a ground floor room but the mosquito net was broken so we asked to be changed, and this was done very quickly and with no problems.
They had a transport service to the centre, but it was strangely organised. As it had 2 time slots to go into town and then 2 to come back again. You couldn't just use it to come back again. We had hired a car and had to drop in the centre. We were planning to drop it off, go for lunch and get the 2.30 shuttle back. However, as no one had gone to town that morning we couldn't get back so had to pay nearly 100 pesos for a taxi!
The service was great - the barmen, waiters, receptionists all looked after us well. Fantastic beach side location, even though I did get stung by something in the water. Great breakfasts by the pool. We were looking forward to using the fitness centre but it didn't open until 9.30 and it closed at 5pm. We would rather do our exercise first thing before breakfast. So I would have preferred it to open at 7am or something similar.
Looking forward to returning one day with a car :)
