              Having a relaxing time with my Beautiful Wife.

              It wasn't as clean as it should have been and our view was kinda blocked do to uncut palm branches.

              10.0

              I loved the private beach area, the room was excellent with the patio, I was alone and felt safe. I will definately stay again and recommend to others, great for families and the price can't be beat. Thank you for a most pleasant stay.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              handy to City and Mexican Border

              extra charge to use gym (US$10) - they should discount your bill by $10 if you use the gym for more than 30mins!!

            • Family with children
              5.8

              The location was just what we needed. The pool area was very nice but they closed it early for a "special event" so we could not use it as much as we would have liked to.The shuttle service from the airport was great and they also shuttled us over to a restaurant for dinner.

              It felt somewhat old and outdated. For as much as we paid per night I did not feel it was worth the money.

            • Family with children
              4.2

              I was relaxing on patio and heard my wife scream. I went inside to find multipule 15+ roaches running across my pillow. Went to front desk with one I caught in a cup and told them.They cancelled my reservation. It was almost like it was no big deal no were sorry no what can we do etc. Also took 5 days for my funds to be released. These roaches were over 2 inches long.

              Breakfast is not buffet. Two waiters servising you with smashed aggs in menu only.

              The spa was great. The food was excellent.

              I did not get my second breakfast free as I was told by you that I would.

            • Group of friends
              7.0

              Rooms were very nice. The location was excellent and the view was awesome.

              The staff was less than accommodating. First they didn't have our guest name right...even though it was right on Booked.net. Then there was a delay in getting our room ready...which we understood...but the staff certainly could have been much more pleasant about it. Next they tried to tell us we couldn't use our breakfast passes...but after we insisted on speaking to a manager...they then agreed it was acceptable. They just didn't present a very warm atmosphere in the hotel.

              Staff were very friendly

              Dining room did not have choices for diabetics and limited menu prices very high. Had to get new key cards 3 times for a five day stay.

              great location. Very quiet

              The front desk staff weren't too welcoming.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              the hotel is in an island, with a beautiful view

              dinner int the hotel is really expensive, you need a car to move, in one of the rooms has a water fall inside...

              It was close to everything and the surrounding area was beautiful and relaxing

              the rooms were very comfortable. the view was just awesome. you walk out of your patio and you are at the beach, aahh.
