2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The hotel did not offer any services like promoted . The room are super tiny and not clean upon arrival, found peanut and hair in the bed. The shuttle/car is impossible to book, so except when you are lucky to hop in on the fly, this is so inconvenient as the hotel is located uphill from downtown activities. Now the restaurant ( separately owned ) is really great , Rogelio and Seanee are super nice and service is great and food is good, we recommend this place for breakfast lunch and dinner. Food and cocktails are good and at a fair price. Patio and music truly add something to the place

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, staff was wonderful. It was easy to call the front desk. They provided beach towels and pool towels. They have a shuttle van from port to hotel and they also have one stop in the middle of town. However we often walked down and up the hill ourselves rather than take the shuttle. It is right in nature near the golf course . I only wish the room was a bit cleaner - they needed to vacuum the edges of the bed where the mattress sits on the platform - there were food particles in the drawers, an old Toothpick/flossed on side of bathroom counter - so it was not as clean as hoped. Also the rooms could use some updating . But overall we were happy and the kids were happy. The pool was a lot of fun for the kids. All the staff were very accommodating and friendly.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Liked- The gardens were very nice. The shuttle service was great- ran often and drivers were very helpful.The room was small, but very comfortable. Didn't like- The bathroom smelled moldy- I think a better fan was needed. There was no place to hang clothes- a few hooks and hangers would help. The price was a bit much.

Our room and bathroom floors were not clean. Pretty surprising especially during Covid. The staff was nice but I won’t return due to the dirty floors and rundown room (furnishings are old).
