"Hotel is good for sleeping, that's it, but cheap"
The beach is not suitable for swimming, the surf is super strong and comes up over the sand so you can't lay out. We bought cleaning supplies at Walmart because it wasn't very clean. It's not close to a lot of things, you'll have to walk/bus/taxi. There were no three-prong plugs so I had to sit and charge my laptop in the lobby most days. They lost internet connection frequently (I like to check email/news/messages in the mornings but would need to ask them to reset the modem). The shower floods, get an extra towel to sop up the water. They give you soap and two towels upon check-in, nothing else. The A/C works well, the beds and pillows are hard, there's a good size fridge in the room, and the TV even had a few English channels. The pool is clean. Staff were lovely and helped us out, holding our bags after we checked out until our flight arrived and opening our wine with a knife because we didn't bring an opener. The hot water always worked, the bathroom smelled really bad just bring a candle or some incense. We bused and then taxi'd down to La Boquita beach to swim and lay out. You'll be approached a lot to buy things. Senor Julio Tacos and El Caballito restaurants were fabulous. Senor Sushi was not.
The week I stayed it rained everyday and the beach was not open to swimming due to poor conditions due to the tropical storm. The pool is very nice wish I had more time to spend there. The restaurant offers daily buffet or a la Carte and food is excellent. The view of the bay is worth the stay, very relaxing.

"All Good but need improvement on Internet service"
I liked everything about the hotel except they had terrible internet service. If they improve on the internet connection, I would go back to stay with them anytime but if not, I will have to find another hotel...

this was a second honeymoon for us and it was wonderful. some of the staff remembered us from our previous visits. the rooms are now smaller, but immaculate. we think it is the most beautiful resort in the world . the food at breakfast was wonderful, but the closing of la terril was a disappointment to us. we had good food at the ocean front establishment and they staff prepared items for us not on the menu. we would recommend this site to any one who asked (we have traveled extensively in the world, so we have many sites to compare this with). all in all a wonderful stay. thanks to all..
