Stayed here for the last week of Feb 2009. Would go back.
All rooms face the ocean, the sound of the waves is quite loud and masks almost all noise.
The restaurant upstairs (El Set) is quite expensive.
We ate at the beachfront restaurant instead, which was very good and reasonably priced.
The beach out front is small but has palapas and not too many vendors. Chairs and loungers are provided on request. Food and drinks are served on the beach. Some mexican families mixed with the tourists - when they arrive the quiet disappears. For a much nicer beach - with no services - walk about 5 minutes to the north.
Bottled water provided free in the corridors. Cable tv included. Our unit had a kitchenette including 2 burner range and bar fridge. Beds are firm but we slept well. AC appeared to work but there was no need. The rooms only get direct sun in the late afternoon so they don't get too hot. There were safes in the rooms but no locks in them. We did not feel the need.
There were a couple of super sized rooms on the bottom floor with their own pools. Perfect for kids! I would take kids here for sure.
Front counter staff very attentive, helpful and friendly to a fault. They even bought us a new hairdryer after being unable to locate a spare one in the hotel over the course of several days of trying.
Beachfront restaurant permeates the area with the smell of grease;
Our room smelled a bit like mildew;
Hotel pool only gets sun in the late afternoon;
There are a lot of stairs. Not a problem for us but could be for some;
A bit too far to walk into pv - the road has poor or no sidewalks.
