We ended up leaving and going to another hotel.

Posted 24-Sep-2014
It seemed like a very peaceful place, but you could not have a drink out on the patio, there were not cocktails, or food except for breakfast. You would have to leave the hotel to get something to eat or drink. That is not what we want when we go on vacation. The pool was the size of a medium hot top, I guess you could get in stand there to cool off. The room was clean and the people were nice. I just prefer a little more luxury when on vacation.

Stay Here !!!

Posted 30-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
This place is a real gem! We had a huge room with new furnishings, a sofa, frig, microwave, and lots of closet space overlooking the jungle. While the hotel is along a busy road, the rooms are overlooking the back of the property which is the jungle. Nelson and the people at the front desk were helpful and great to work with. The hot breakfast was nothing special, but adequate and filling. The bus stop was a short walk away and was a 10 minute ride to the beach. Z, the restaurant next door was excellent and we ate there 2 nights.

Amazing Hotel

Posted 10-Jun-2014
Pros: Service, Cleanliness, space.
Cons: Breakfast is great, but a buffet breakfast would be awesome.
Location: The location is great. A minute away walking to a bus stop. Buses are about 50 cents. Super cheap.
I had an amazing experience. The absolute best service and facilities. I really enjoyed the service from the front desk staff (Jonathan and Javier I think. The two guys with hair were fantastic, but the bald guy was just okay). The young lady who served breakfast was so welcoming and kind. She didn't receive tip very often, but treated us like guest in her own home. The rooms were the best. So artistic and absolutely immaculate. The were very very spacious. I could totally live there.

A NICE PLACE WITH VERY NICE STAFF

Posted 04-Jun-2014
Pros: The staff and the spaciousness and cleanliness of the rooms. The AC.
Cons: The smell of paint thinner or something like that
Location: The restaurant in the building -- Z -- was first rate. And they have a daily english speaking AA meeting at a nearby hotel every day. Bus is easy.
The room was spacious, modern and sleek but had a weird chemical smell -- which is the only reason it doesn't get 5 rating from us. It seemed like maybe it had been painted or remodeled recently. That was the only quibble. The staff -- especially Javier -- were accommodating and helpful. He even spotted a sloth mother/child for us in the trees by the pool. And Z is a very good place to eat fish. This is a well run hotel in a beautiful part of the world.

Great bargain

Posted 09-Apr-2014
Hotel staff was very pleasant. As soon as I got there someone took my bag and led me to the reception. There check in was easy and then I was given a quick tour. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The breakfast area was very cute and felt like you were eating in the jungle.
