We loved every minute of our stay here! The views were amazing from the room, breakfast and the pool/bar. Breakfast was great each morning and the drinks at the bar were perfect for the beautiful sunsets. Bayron at reception was able to help us arrange transport anytime we asked and so friendly. We loved being able to walk to local restaurants for lunch/dinner like Agua Azul, Soda El Angel and Emilios Cafe. Dinner at the hotel though was also GREAT food!

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The hotel itself is lovely. I wish there was more effort put into the rooms. The mattress is so painful I woke up with a bad back the next day. The shower head steadily poured all night and there was a mysterious loud humming noise. Needless to say, neither of us slept well if at all. Not very conducive for a long drive on rainy and twisting roads. Very disappointing.
