This property is highly recommended by our family and we absolutely loved our time there. Small and quaint property but large suites and lots of communal gathering places. We met a lot of travellers staying at the property and had some great conversations about where to go and what to do. We've been to Bucerias many times and this property stands out as one of the best. The food at the El Cafe Bucerias is excellent and the pricing is on point as well. The Japanese restaurant Mikoh is next door to the hotel and it was excellent as well. We travelled with our 12 yr old daughter and she enjoyed this property very much! Lastly, the complimentary golf cart use to get groceries or bring beach chairs and umbrellas down to the beach is a really nice touch. We also enjoyed the complimentary use of the bicycles. Excellent linens in the bedrooms, in-suite laundry, full kitchen and lovely, large extended patio gives this property an A from us!

Hotel staff are very nice and helpful, they were always available to help when we had a question or needed a taxi. The hotel had everything we needed and was comfortable. There was alot of construction around the hotel so it was very noisy all of the time even at night. The hotel restaraunt was ok service was a bit slow and they even forgot to bring me my coffee. The neighborhood was very cool and the beach was walking distance. I love bucerias and would definately return to this hotel and recomend to anyone.
