do not go there!

Posted Jan 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was terrible, nothing like the pictures. The rooms are shabby and there is no reception area, no wifi or phone reception in the room and they charged us for two nights even though we checked out after one. DO NOT STAY THERE!

Quiet place to stay

Posted Feb 10, 2013
good rate, quiet hotel not alot of guests. easy to find and friendly staff. endless pool needed more water, no coffee maker in the rooms. could use a thorough clean in the rooms. a bit musty and mildewy wouldn't recommend it for anyone with asthma. great view. if you're an independent traveller that doesn't need the amenities of a hotel and spend most of your time adventuring this hotel is for you. on the highway between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo so a great spot to start from if you're exploring the southern Jalisco coast. I would stay again.

We were happy with our experience

Posted Apr 9, 2009
We booked at this hotel because they were one of the few that allowed pets, and we have a little dog. The hotel in its day was probably one of the best, although it could use some renovating. We were almost the only guests, both times that we stayed there. It has a nice pool and a great view from all of the rooms. We had a suite that was very comfortable, with a large balcony and wonderful view. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch, and we had a lovely breakfast (omelet, sausages, toast) for a reasonable price. The staff is very friendly. It is south of Puerto Vallarta about 20 minutes, just past a nice little mexican town, and we really enjoyed the area. It was good value for the cost.

what a view!

Posted Jan 29, 2009
This is not the place you want to go if you love the crowd and the services that resorts usually offer. The 180 degree view over the ocean is nevertheless breathtaking and if you want to have a rest away from everything you will love that place.
