Enjoyed our stay mainly because of the service. Adolfo was so friendly and helpful and always with a smile on his face. We met Gilbert on our way out, who was also very friendly. The people at the bar and at breakfast were also very helpful and pleasant.
We stayed in a corner suite that overlooked the pool and bar and had big balcony with a really nice view of the ocean. This was a great location until the party Friday night. We came back from dinner to find the pool and bar area packed with people. We knew there was going to be a band, but no idea just how big of a party it would be. We actually enjoyed our vantage point for a while. The band was really good and the show with the dancers with batons on fire were amazing! It was supposed to wrap up by 1:30, but it was well after 2:00 a.m when the music stopped. If we were in our 20's or early 30's this would have been great. But, now that we're late 40's fuddy-duddies, it was a little much for us. ;-p
As for the accommodations, the suite could definitely use some fixing up. The window over the shower, which is just a screen (no glass) had a tear in the screen, which is why I suppose we had a few bugs (one rather large insect) hanging around. Also, tiny ants were found in the kitchen area and bathroom. The shower had great water pressure, but no shower head... just a pipe where the water came out. The place has great potential and is a nice size, though.
All in all a decent place to stay.
