This property is perfectly located in Bucerius. Walking distance to great restaurants, the beach, markets, and stores. We had a Studio Suite in Blg. 3. Very large, comfortable bed. The only thing i would add is hooks in the bathroom. There was no place to hang towels, bathing suits, etc..

perfect vacation spot
We could not have had a lovelier stay. Check in was a little slow but this is pretty normal in Mexico and we are used to it. Room was not ready which we expected ( we were early) so had our swimsuits handy and waited by the pool. Were told they let us know when the room was ready but never did. No worries, after a couple of hours at the pool we wandered up to the lobby and found our rom was ready. A father and son started this company and you can see it is a hard working small family business.We were in a studio in building 3, only 2 years old.They name, not number, the rooms Ours was "Huapango" The pool was right outside the door. There was a king size bed, 3/4 size fridge, microwave and 2 burner stove and coffee maker. No tea kettle for my tea but they brought one over when I asked. No soap or sponge for dishes but again brought over when asked. The room and bathroom were immaculate. There was a lot of attention to detail. Free golf cart use to go to supermarket for groceries. ( we ate breakfast in the room and packed sandwiches for the beach . We usually ate dinner out ) There were a few tupperware containers for our use. There was free use of beach chairs and umbrella.The beach is 2 short blocks away. Staff knew English, were friendly/accommodating. One night I needed medicine and Jorge, the son, offered to drive me in his own car as he knew the pharmacist would not speak English. I was blown away by his kindness and consideration. We will definitely come back!!
