  • 4.0.Fair

    Beds were the worst I have ever had, giving my wife and me an achy back. One night rain came under the deck patio door all the way to the other side of the room. It was fixed the next day. The swimming pool tiles are slippery with many sharp edges. In fact we witnessed a man and child who had a bad accident because of this. Breakfast for what I paid for the hotel was pathetic. The room was a decent size and quiet. The staff were excellent.

    Good Hotel

    Overall this hotel was good, located north of the town center. We stayed the end of January 2019. On Saturday they had music down by the pool that could be heard throughout the resort. Breakfast was good, buffet style with eggs/omelettes made to order. The week we stayed was definitely off season and quiet during the week. The room was average, nothing fancy but not bad, we had a lizard visit us! If I ever return to Montanita I would stay here again.

    Buena estadía en Baja Montañita

    Lugar decente para quedarse. No es lujoso pero si apenas para estar tranquilo. Comida con buen sabor y el personal muy amable. Puede mejorar la nevera de la habitación y el menú de desayuno ser un poco más variado

  • 6.0.Good

    El lugar es hermoso pero se nota que no le han dado mantenimiento en mucho tiempo, los lavamanos y duchas estan llenos de oxido, el color del agua piscina super turbio, casi todas las sillas perezosas estaban rotas/dañadas, las camas que estaban ubicadas encima de la arena estaban en mal estado y sin colchón; no hay mucho personal para atender a todos los clientes. Con un buen mantenimiento podrían mejorar muchísimo la imagen y brindar un mejor servicio al cliente. El costo por noche es $206,13 por lo que NO se justifica que las instalaciones estén deterioradas.

    Buen hotel para lo que hay en Montañita.

    El lugar cumple con lo que ofrece. Es un buen hotel de puebl9 de surfistas que buscan principalmente un lugar donde caer despues de una noche de alcohol y drogas, por lo tanto, el punto de comparacion y exigencia es bajo. Restaurant debil, desayuno debil, atencion muy buena, relacion precio calidad regular. Negativo, el closet de madera estaba impregnado de olor a transpiracion. Positivo, queda a 1 dolar 50 del centro y evitas estar en la mitad del ruido cuando quieres dormir.
