This hotel has really good reviews which is why I booked it for a six night stay. But I should have known it was too good to be true for the price I got. We reserved a superior room, and requested a king bed. Now I know they cannot garuntee requests, but we got put in a "superior room" that had a bed smaller than an American full/double. My boyfriend and I were so uncomfortable and it was hot, so that made it worse. The pool is not something you want to go in, anyone in the restaurant can watch you and its basically the size of a small pond. This hotel is filled with people who live in more centralized mexico and are visiting the beach for vacation, not many other vacationers from out of the country. The location, which is supposed to be great, is not. It is less than a block from the Malecon boardwalk, but the rest of the surrounding area is dingy and not great. My suggestion is to stay in the marina area at a resort where you have an actual pool and beach without vendors. Then take a cab to the Malecon area to visit. Its super cheap. We ended up moving to the Marriot in the marina area and after two nights and absolutely had an amazing rest of the vacation. Also when at the airport do not pay more than 300 pesos for a cab ride. Some guy tried to tell us it was 500 pesos but we took 10 steps further out and the rest were 300. Although our ride back was only 200 (pesos) so who knows. The airport exit can be intimidating but people know english and you can get by.
