    Constant noise from kids in the pool all day. Not good for couples. But, yes, very affordable.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Location was perfect between a large supermarket across the street,a 10min. walk to the beach,and a 20min. walk into the heart of town. Maids would take all towels after cleaning the room in morning and bring clean ones after 4pm,so 0 towels until 4pm .Also you would have to ask, the aircond. to be turned back on if you came back to your room early,because they would turn off the power for the A/C during the Day.

    Little hospitality

    First I asked to be in a room on a lower level as stairs are difficult I was told no because I booked with so after coming in the first day my room has no power so downstairs again. Then no wifi which was the case for the 3 nights. No bottled water or glasses. Loud voices carried throughout. Finally booked a tour was told English was spoken but 80% was Spanish and felt cheated out of information. Close to a beach further to find good coffee.

    Comodo y sencillo

    El hotel es sencillo, para el precio ofrece buen servicio y las instalaciones estan en buenas condiciones, las televisiones un poco viejas pero bueno casi no veo tv, creo que deberian agregar los refrigeradores esos pequeñitos que la mayoria de los hoteles tienen, la alberca estaba limpia. Se encuentra en una muy buena ubicacion cerca de la playa y el centro, los empleados son muy atentos, lo unico que no me gusto es que no cuentan con elevador y si te toca en el ultimo piso espero que tengas buena condicion fisico porque con las maletas se hace pesado el trayecto.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Great reception and checkin, excellent room size, nice pool BUT on last night young men screaming and shouting in pool until late at night, then a husband wife row set up with her shouting and kids running around the corridors until at least 2 in the morning. Where were the staff? That ruined our stay there, hence the low rating. Shame, because the staff we met were charming but people shouldn't be allowed to wreck the stay of the majority like that.
