This is an amazing boutique hotel property! The decor is a modern aesthetic with Mexican accents. You get a good-sized, clean room with premium toiletries (handmade soaps, quality shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, after-sunburn lotion, mosquito repellant lotion), a blow dryer, lightweight waffle-cotton robes and slippers. There is a lovely small pool in the courtyard of the property, a little bigger than a lap pool, with chairs and tables around it. This place makes the most out of every inch for services and ambiance!
A fantastic hot breakfast of eggs, pancakes, waffles, omlettes, etc all cooked to order, as well a variety of fresh-squeezed juices, fresh fruit, cereal, breads, and terrific coffee or espresso (which is just a more concentrated version of the coffee it appears, but a big cup of it!) is served from 8-10:30 on their super-pretty rooftop terrace that overlooks a quieter section of Fifth Avenue. Lots of umbrellas and sail shades are there so you won't roast to death in the sun. Big electric fans help out when it is too much of a scorcher.
The location is on a developing area of Fifth that has terrific restaurants and a corner store on the same small block. The pedestrian area starts two blocks away to the south. While they are not on the beach, they will still give you a complimentary towel/drink on one of 3 beach clubs in PDC, (Canibal Royal, Mamitas, and one other that I can't remember right now) so you can still enjoy the beach every day. The hotel staff is nothing short of wonderful and helpful, and even speak English.
My only regret is that we only spent 2 nights there before moving on...
