We stayed six nights at the end of March 2013. My wife and I originally booked another Hotel. Unfortunately, the room we reserved was not available upon our arrival. We stayed one night at that Hotel without Air Conditioning and decided to find other arrangements. After securing our rental car, we walked right next door to Frank's and inquired about a room. Frank's hooked us up! After explaining our situation to Juliana at the front desk, she worked to find us rooms for six nights. We ended up staying four nights in a regular room and two nights in a deluxe size room. What we enjoyed about our stay was that breakfast was included. The rooms were clean and had A/C and mini refrigerators. The pool and surrounding courtyard were clean and maintained. The location was unbeatable. We could walk to beach and surrounding restaurants. The only minor issue we had is when we checked into the second room, the A/C was not working. They did manage to get it working the same day, but it took awhile. Another thing worth mentioning, but did not bother us, is that they have an open bar area around the pool area where soccer games are viewed at night. It can get a little noisy.
