My friends and I stayed here last Summer. On arrival we were asked whether we wanted to upgrade to a room with an ocean view. Though we declined as it was quite expensive, we were upgraded for free anyway.
The room itself wasn't particularly fancy but it was clean. I would definitely recommend having an ocean view otherwise you'll have the view of the main road and the restaurants opposite.
We were a group of young girls and I found that there were a lot of Mexican families and older couples staying at the hotel who weren't particularly friendly and spent most of their holiday staring at us.
The hotel itself never seemed particularly busy so there was a rush to save sun beds with towels early in the morning. I preferred the pool next to the beach rather than the one near reception as it tended to be quieter.
The food at the hotel was horrible!!! Some days I wasn't even able to recognise what it was. We weren't told this by the staff but there was an a la carte restaurant next the beach which you could eat in every night instead of the buffet. Though the food there still wasn't great, it was better than the buffet.
We had friends staying at the hotel down the road and when they called the hotel and asked for us, the hotel said that there were no English people staying at the hotel and when they came to see us they were told they couldn't come in and the hotel didn't pass on any of their messages to us.
The hotel is a short bus/taxi ride away from the clubs and restaurants. The bus stop is right outside the hotel which made travelling easy. Taxis were quite expensive but the bus was really cheap and came frequently.
Overall, the hotel wasn't great but it was cheap and clean and I still had an amazing holiday.
