This boutique hotel is quite the gem! Conveniently located at 10th Avenida and 14th Street, you have easy, walking access to everything --- the beach, both the older side and newer side of 5th Avenida and many non-tourist conveniences like the Mega Supermarket, a new Ado bus station, laundromats where they take care of your clothes for a song and an endless supply of authentic and very Mexican food places that cater to the locals. You walk past the reception area and you find yourself in an oasis of tranquility ---- a meandering pool with bridges and landings, lush vegetation, soaring trees, quiet shaded alcoves and a wonderful pool side bar. I stayed in a junior suite and my room (like most) was graced with an outdoor seating area facing the pool! My room was spacious with a modern bathroom along with many great amenities --- small refrigerator, flat screen, coffee maker, in room safe and upstairs outdoor deck with a hot tub!. The wifi worked quite well and my only disappointment was the absence of a desk. The staff is friendly and helpful and the restaurant excellent. Breakfast was included and was very good with continental, American and Mexican choices available. Dinner is Italian and phenomenal with an emphasis on seafood. If you like mescal, the bar had a great selection. The clientele was quite diverse with most being from Europe. The hotel has arrangements with several beach clubs that will give you a discounted fare. Overall --- great --- will return!
