We needed a hotel for just one night following a a cruise on Princess. If you're looking for a luxury hotel you better try a Hilton or Sheraton, but for less than $100 per night this is a great value.
We had booked an Oceanview room with a terrace. We arrived about 11 AM, well before scheduled check-in time, and they told us we could wait for about one hour for our room to be ready however they did have a room available immediately if we wanted to take it. We took the room on the sixth floor with Oceanview but no balcony and Windows that were clouded which obscured the view. I was disappointed and went to the desk to complain and they immediatly gave us a much nicer room on the fourth floor with large balcony and great Oceanview.
The desk people were always so helpful. Most of them spoke pretty good English. Any request or question was taken care of quickly and with a smile.
We were there on a Saturday and the beaches and streets were crowded with Mexican vacationers. Children everywhere having a great time on the beautiful Caleta beach. The hotel restaurant was not open on Saturday afternoon, but they suggested right next door was La Cabana restaurant. We got a great lunch for a very reasonable price and a beautiful beach view. Next door and across the street are convenience stores that have snacks, and beer, etc.
The hotel was clean, the room was quite pleasant, but no washcloths. You have to request that they start the air-conditioner and provide the remote control for the TV. The AC works beautifully. The elevators are small and seem to require some maintenance to keep them running properly. I asked the desk to arrange for a taxi at 4:45 AM to get us to the airport. There was a comfortable airport than waiting for us at 4:30 AM. All in all this was a pleasant hotel with nice people running things.
