Wish it was better
I really wanted to like this hotel. The grounds are truly a beautiful boutique style hotel with greenery jungle atmosphere. We (a large family occupying 4 family cabin rooms and 1 couples room) arrived around 8 pm to find out that the large pool was empy and out of service. We had to go to the smaller pool in the back of the property which was already occupied by a large family. It was very dark and seating for only a few people. We had to go get our chairs from our rooms patio. Tried to get food service and our server Rogelio was kind and hard working but the kitchen staff could not get our orders right and I ended up not even getting my food at all, went to bed hungry. My room was a little weird and old and my daughter found spiders in the beds frame (made of cement). Do not expect a super comfy bed and spotless room. Go if you are ok with things not being perfect in exchange for beautiful scenery and walking distance to playa ropa beach. Oh yeah another thing the bar was not able to make any of my favorite cocktails. Had to stick to tequila sunrises and beer. They have a lot of improvements to make but i think they do have potential.
