First off, there was the hugest live cockroach in our room and when we asked if we could have a discount, we were given late check out as compensation - live cockroaches, usually this huge, usually give you a free night last time i checked. The staff, at least in summer time when the hotel is very quiet, were quite young and inexperienced. We asked that a tour guide be arranged and the front desk staff told us they found us a deal at 250 pesos. Well, it was 250 USD (or 7 times as much) and our tour started with tension with the tour operator used by the hotel who demanded payment in cash up front and nobody had agreed on how many pesos we owed. The swimming area was not set up even by 4pm in the afternoon, and the restaurant we were recommended had not very good food.
The hotel itself has quiet modern rooms and a nice atrium breakfast area and is very well located.
