Quaint Family Hotel

4 out of 5
by from Austin, TX
Posted Jun 18, 2016
The staff was friendly and spoke enough English to work with our bits of Spanish. The hot tub wasn't hot, but it was a fun clean, hidden side pool. The beach was immediately outside the back of the hotel, which was fun and offered a stunning view. The restaurant was so-so, except the tortillas which were awesome, the ambiance which was fun, and the waiter who was fantastic. The bedrooms all have doors with open slats, so there is no sound privacy in any of the rooms. What was set up to be the master was actually a loft situation, completely open to the living room. We'd go again!

Pros: Good place if you like to cook and eat there
Cons: They could use a make over on the rooms
Location: Good location if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of town
It was okay. Ants were present in kitchen. There has not been any unkeep, like rusty shower pipes, old couch that dips deep when you sit on it. THe cleaniing lady was great everyday with new towels and sweeping. THe beach was not good this year.

Familiar y descanso

Estuve 4 noches es cómodo agradable y cordial. No está cerca de la zona dorada más bien de la Marina. La playa bonita, la comida rica hay que aprovechar el 2x1 en comidas y bebidas ofrecen información para tours. Si llegaras a tener algún problema o inconveniente hacen lo posible por solucionarlo. Eso sí no hay personal de servicio en la noche "solo vigilante"

Cons: la alberca, y un poco la fachada de las instalaciones y luz en el area de la playa
muy a gusto, todo muy bien en cuanto a la estancia, solo un pequeño detalle, un poco mas de limpieza en la alberca, fuera de ello, la pasamos muy bien.

Pros: las villas son muy amplias y bien equipadas.
Cons: Los sillones de la sala eran algo viejos y olían a humedad, un cambio de tapiz no les haría mal..
Location: El lugar es muy agradable sientes que estas fuera de la ciudad todo es muy tranquilo.
Las villas son tranquilas, ideales para relajarse y disfrutar la playa.

Pros: hermosa playa
Cons: check out que sea alas 12pm
Location: bonitaplaya solamente
buena playa, buenas villas, pero un robo total que el check out sea alas 10am, obviamente nadie saldra a esa hora y toman tu deposito (alevosia y ventaja) y se descuentan a lo chino de el. Ccambien el check out alas 12pm como todos los demas hoteles señores.
