    Great location and food but overall mediocre stay

    Bottom line is, I’d avoid the resort until they get their act together and the active construction slows down. It’s overpriced and overrated for what it is. Pros: - Food was consistently great - Location is amazing. The beach is very serene, there are lots of hiking trails nearby and lots of wildlife. Cons: - It’s been stated in other reviews but it’s only sort of an all inclusive. You can only eat at 2 of the 3 restaurants, and at one of those 2 you can only order off a limited menu. So not really many options relative to other all inclusive sin Mexico. - You have to sign a receipt for every single transaction, so every drink you order and every time you eat. This is solely to encourage tipping but it’s really, really annoying. - customer service is really inconsistent. A lot of the concierge are rude and unhelpful and are only there to push timeshares, which they will do constantly no matter how many times you say no, but a lot of the waiters, excursion hosts, etc were great. - There is construction going on 6 days a week, from sunup to sundown and it’s really loud, and really distracting. And the staff is completely unsympathetic about it.

    Great hotel, the food was delicious and the staff extremely friendly and attentive. I can honestly say I have no buts for this hotel exempt for very small details that aren’t that important to me. Our room didn’t have wifi which for my husband was a little of a problem but I was fine. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are going to Loreto, look no more! The pool, beach and spa are excellent. We plan to come back next year for sure!

    It was not transparent at booking that there was major construction going on. The noise levels were high including on Saturday. The hotel room was spacious and clean but unfortunately our beds were very hard and it made our nights quite uncomfortable. The pillows had no firmness. The only mirror in the room is the bathroom. There was no wood available in our room. The restaurants were clean and the food was tasty. The pools and surrounding areas were solid shape. The wifi on the property was very spotty.

    The hotel is under construction to exoand… I have not notified about this…. I paid for the high price room to relax, but the noises of construction in early am everyday wake me up… I can not even sit and enjoyed the view from balcony with the construction noises… it is worst that the staff never say anything to us, no apology for the inconvenience…. Th staff in front office need to improve on customer service skills… I suppose to have a bottle of wine included in my package, but it was not there until I called 2 tines to ask for it… Disappointed !
