5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Thank you to all the lovely staff of the Palococo hotel who made my stay wonderful.This hotel is a very calm oasis in the city center. All bungallows are surrounding a lovely swimming pool and the garden is absolutely faboulous, very clean and well kept.
Everybody working in this hotel is wonderful, I can only say thank you to all and see you soon!

The hotel is okay to stay one or two nights. Next to the hotel they got a stadium were they made a lot noise. The security at night has to be better. Next to our rooms were staying some young guys that they return to the hotel in the middle of the night (3:00 am) with high music and yielding a lot of bad words and also, got into a fight waking up every body, the situation was reported to the security more than five times for different gests and they did nothing, he did not care, I could not believe it.

Room Tip: Stay in the other side of the stadium

Dear client:
You are right. Sometimes, the proximity of the stadium causes discomfort . We regret to have no solution. Fortunately is not common but it can be annoying when occurs. We hope situation improves. It seems that the authorities are beginning to worry about acustic pollution.
We greatly appreciate your information on the guard.
The Manager was not informed in time.
We will transmit this to the company and will take the necessary actions.
Thanks again and best regards.

+ The rooms are cute and there's a fridge and air conditioning in each room. The grounds are pretty- lots of flowers and a couple seats outside your room. There's a guard on duty starting right at dusk who stays overnight.
+ The beach is far away if you don't have a vehicle. The good news is that it gives you an excuse to ride the back of the motorconchos (little motor bikes) which are always available and you can get to the beach with a dollar or two (about 60 pesos each). Please don't expect a helmet though:) Other good news is that the very friendly management said they recently purchased a free shuttle to the beach and it will start very soon.
- The hotel is right next door to a stadium and while we were there a basketball tournament was going on. From around 9am until pretty late in the evening we could hear the announcer on the mic from our room!
-Breakfast was not very good- only juice served was pineapple juice which tasted disgusting and old.
- The pool was half empty.
Overall it's a comfortable and pleasant place, but how much you'll enjoy it really depends on what you're looking for. Lots of small town charm.

I regret my bad English.
Thank you for your comments, which will attempt to improve our service.
When the Community celebrates its annual festivities force us to endure some degree of noise which is fortunately very rare. Sorry for that.
I have the pleasure to announce that the two solar-electric vehicles have already arrived (yesterday June 30th) and I hope will be operational within a week as a free service.
With respect to the defect of our breakfast, I'm sorry what happened, and do not know the reasons, because we normally have two or three types of natural juices to choose from. Perhaps a pinneaple was damaged, but obviously someone did a bad job and so I present my most sincere apologies. Always at your disposal. JMA (Manager)

We stayed here in April for 3 nights, and it was really lovely - amazing value for money.

We stayed in an air conditioned room (not all of them are) which was a good size, with a very comfy bed and good on-suite bathroom. When we arrived, the towels were arranged as swans with a flower arrangement which was such a lovely touch. All the rooms have a patio area at the front and look out on to the pool area and garden.

On a minus point the food was not great, but as we were just there for breakfast it didn't really matter. It wasn't bad, just very basic (eggs, toast, cheese, coffee). Also, it's slightly out of town, so to walk to the beach would take about 20 minutes (or it's a 5 minute ride on a motorbike taxi).

The people running the place however more than made up for it. They were so attentive and helpful - helping us organise day trips, giving advice, booking transportation for us too. Especially as our Spanish wasn't great, they were really useful!

Definitely recommend to stay here if you want something excellent value for money, cheerful, and romantic with great staff.

Room Tip: remember to ask for a room with air conditioning!!
