This hotel is basic with clean rooms with hair dryers and coffee makers, adequate food and great staff and great location. It is not for people who want lots of organized activities, fantastic food and all modern amenities.
It has a good (slightly short) tennis court. The beach is for surfing and the hotel has boogie boards for rent. There is a volley ball court and horse shoe pitch but these were unused during our stay. Bird watching was good right at the hotel and iguanas were everywhere.
We were there for both the Christmas dinner and the New Year's Eve dinner and celebration.
The Christmas dinner was very good and they went all out for New Year's with a good band and fireworks. It was quite amazing considering it is such a small resort (~100 rooms and suites).
Regular meals were okay with little or no dessert. You can ask for ice cream. There is only one restaurant which is the buffet and main bar as well. Drinks,including wine, were self serve.
We walked into town only once. It was very hot so even a kilometre was tiring, but there was no hustling like in similar Mexican towns.
I hated the thumping pool music which runs all day from about 11 am. What about a nice siesta time? Ear plugs helped.
The casino was very quiet and almost unused.
