Nice view and gardens but that's it!
Don't let the name of this hotel fool you, there is no beach at this site on the lake. The hotel is about half a block from the lake. This hotel is quite dated and worn. If you want a good nights sleep bring ear plugs, there are numerous stray dogs in the area who howl and bark all night and morning long. The rooms are not very sound proof and you can here conversations from the garden clearly as if they were in your room. My room had a gap in the door from the room to the balcony which let in the mosquitos. The pool is very small and more like a kiddy pool and looked a little cloudy when I arrived. When I went to check out I was billed for a double which was $10 more than a single. When I spoke with Juan Francisco he argued with me that I had reserved as 2 people despite the fact my reservation clearly stated 1 person. He insisted that I pay for a double room even though it was obvious I was one person. The customer service from this man was non-existent and I found him rude and uncompromising. The tv and stand was placed in front of the cupboard so if you wanted to put your clothes away you needed to move the tv and stand.

Very run down, clean and staff pleasant.
View of lake good but getting smaller as building work taking place in front of hotel. Loud music till 12 midnight. Hotel needs updating- very expensive for what it is. No English spoken. Pool very small.
