This property is on one of the best beaches in the area. The pool is pretty nice, the view is beautiful but the rooms are of the same caliber of $39 rooms I've visited in Mexico. The most this property should be charging is $99 per night until they update their rooms, beds, pillows, cleanliness, bathrooms etc...

Room Tip: There could be better rooms so ask to see your room before committing to the hotel.

The hotel rooms are very expensive and they are very old, the AC doesn't work, the door doesn't work, at the pool there aren't enough places to take the sun comfortably. The price it's not worth it. Bad service, bad rooms, but experience.

We stayed here for 1 night as we were in the area to visit friends of my wife. Regret big time that we stayed here. An impressiv building that is nicely painted outside. But that is all. The list of negative things are way to long to write it down here.....
Where is the management of this place and the owner!!!! Are they a bunch of amatours in the hotel business? Do they know anything at all about running a hotel and how to get repeat business??? Just wondering....
The place has great potencial of being something great again as it was one time in the past.
It has a very nice location and beach area, but the outdoor area as well as indoor area + rooms needs a serious upgrade on tiles, painting, decor, furnitures and general maintinance.
Do that and lower the price a little bit + include the breakfast and you will have a sucsess.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room with balcony towards the beach at least. But if you have a choice, choos...

The location is the best in san carlos my kids had a great time at the beach with all the rentals. Our waiter offered excellent service. We visited san Carlos a week before Spring break and the place Was vacant. We had it all to ourselves. My biggest complain is their beds. They are so uncomfortable, really hard. I felt like if I Was sleeping on the floor. The kids pool Was really nice but the water Was freezing cold and since in march is not that hot. Mostly all the kids wanted to be in the jaccuzi because the water Was a bit warm. That also bothered us, we wanted to relax in the jaccuzi in the evening and the water Was almost as cold as in the pool. Finally our drinks were mediocre, even though we ordered most of the different drinks they were like smoothies no alcohol to be found. It's just an average place to stay. If they ever get softer mattresses I would return.

Stayed: March 2013, traveled with family

This hotel is very convenient and has a very friendly atmosphere. The rooms are quite big and comfortable. Nice view and facilities. A variety of good restaurants are right in the vicinity of the resort. Good basis for diving or boat trips.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 weeks and think I know it pretty well.
The positives:
You cannot beat the location of this spacious resort hotel. Right on one of the best beaches in San Carlos. Also just a stroll along the beach away from the Soggy Peso - palapa cantina. This hotel has all the amenities. Many rooms to choose from, beaches, swimming pools and also 3 different dining choices. It is also the only place where you can rent a jet ski and really tear it up out on the Sea of Cortez. Those are the good things
The negatives:
mediocre service on everything. Food. Rooms. Amenities. Average. Average. Average at best.
Empty during the week. So, hot water is turned down to save money. Large wedding crowds show up every weekend. So expect loud parties and music until 2 or 3 am. Thursday night. Friday night. Saturday night.
No local shops around. It is 10 minutes to get to San Carlos if you want to dine or go anywhere other than the beach.
If you are easy going, not easily stressed. Can live with the give and take, ebb and flow of Mexico. Then stay here and soak in the sun, beach and culture!

Room Tip: If you need quiet to sleep - on weekends, choose rooms at the very end of the hotel. To avoid any n...
