As I entered the hotel, I was greeted by wife wife, my business partner and my business partner's wife. They proceeded to bring me to the back garden passing the staff, whom they already knew by name and sat me down for a double Margarita. I had crossed over into a new world...
But first, let me explain how I got there. About 4 hours earlier, my truck was dying. I stayed with truck as my wife & guests took a cab to the hotel. After getting towed to the hotel, I entered and was received by my welcoming party. It seemed like the whole staff was worried about my truck and wanted to know how it went. Wow...2 minutes and I felt like family.
We had one of the best steak dinners ($175 pesos for this thick filet mignon in a pepper sauce) ever. I tried it again a few days later (too much of a good thing) and it was still superb!
The hotel is clean, extremely friendly and very welcoming. We loved the restaurant, and our room (two room suite) was great.
But...where this hotel excelled is their personal attention. The owner personally called a garage that would look at my car late on a Saturday and lent me one of his staff so I could drive there and not get lost. Who does that?
We ended up being stranded till Tuesday (waiting for a part) and it was the best time my wife & I had in a long time!
