We have so many things to say that is very hard to find where to start. Let's try the very first day. The assigned room had a terrible humid smell, from the sheets to the pillows, it seemed that someone used that bed and they just covered it with a comforter full of holes. It became worst: the ceiling started to leak when a person from the upstair-room took a shower, and in a few minutes our bathroom was full of water. We requested to change the room but we have to wait until the next morning, which took the whole day to get a decent one, after loosing the entire day without going to the beach.
Ah! the beach! It was at around 3 blocks from the hotel, with no private beach, meaning we had to share with the locals, especially the vendors, who can drive you crazy. But the sad part was so many and young, underage prostitutes with old European men. That was bizarre.
Returning to the hotel: very nice premises, rooms distributed in many blocks, and a big and gorgeous pool for adults, and a separate one for kids. That was OK, except the many times, every day, problems with the electricity. But the food was horrible. It was not variety in meals: you can get pork and chicken in so many ways, and rice at breakfast, lunch and dinner, but it wasn't any fish, in a Caribbean Island! And no fruits: just bananas and dry tangerine. Never mango or papaya, again, nothing tropical. The bar was good enough.
But the staff was friendly, not all of them but the vast majority. They seemed no very happy to work there but without choice. The worst: a group that try to sell you a time-share.
In summary, great weather, wonderful water, but we are not coming back in a milion years. May be to a different city. We do not recommend this hotel and the Boca Chica area at all.
