Stayed 4 nights here, efficient check in with good, dedicated staff. Location is very good and close to the airport. There is a very good free shuttle service supplied by hotel van when available.
Rooms are new, clean but small and very basic. No telephone, no tea/coffee facilities and the bathroom can only be described as tiny but functional. Wifi works but is almost too slow to be usable, particularly when doing critical things such as making bookings and paying by card.
Setting of rooms around the pool looks very nice, but unfortunately it makes them extremely noisy too. The hotel has rules on noise, but some inconsiderate guests ignore them. There is supposed to be a silence period 2100-0900, but it is not observed. We were woken early (pre 0600) by persons going on the Underground River trips who had no regard for others. Similarly the same people decided to have late night parties out around the pool, probably because rooms are too small to entertain in.
Unfortunately the Management have seen fit to place notices on Rules and Regulations (most of which are ignored) in all rooms. There are many Do's and Dont's to be observed.
The pool is very nice and well maintained, however space is limited and there are only 4 sunbeds. Also the Pool is unavailable from 2100 until 0900, which more or less precludes an early morning swim if going out for the day.
Also be aware that in this hotel, everything is extra which makes it more expensive than others of the same quality. The restaurant is quite good and Breakfast is reasonably priced, as are the drinks, but some of the other charges are ridiculous.
To advertise itself as a Pool resort and then charge guests 35 pesos for hire of Pool towels is outrageous, similarly asking 60 pesos an hour for use of the single 'open' guest computer is not acceptable.
Summing up, good location, nice staff, noisy, basic and can be expensive.
