I've stayed at many different types of beach hotels, from barebones to luxe. This one is a great middle of the road option. It is easy on the wallet, by US standards, and very nice quality. The rooms are huge and I believe every single one faces the beach, with lovely terraces to sit on and listen to the waves....

Hasn't changed since 1976 except disco is gone and more modern TVs. Awesome service - ask for Fermin at the bar and bellman Fernando - dinning room manager is amazing! Rooms large and clean and lovely - everyone an ocean view. Almost all with balcony. Check out the Penthouse suites. Very good location and quiet at night. Open the door...

We enjoyed our meeting at this hotel. We booked 5 rooms and other than some noise complaints, in general we were very pleased. Our room had a king-size bed which was quite comfortable. Sometimes the air conditioning did not work as well as we wanted it to but the front desk responded well and sent someone to check, or, as...

A 3+ star hotel in a great location. Rooms are merely OK but do offer great views from the balcony, especially if you are on one of the higher floors. Breakfast is good, but a bit pricey at approx 200 pesos. My main gripe of this hotel was the bar. Too often the staff would be watching a TV show...

The room was okay, very small vanity not enough space for makeup and hair products to get ready. The view from the balcony was beautiful we had an ocean view. The food mediocre. The hotel was under renovation and walking around construction during vacation not the thing to do. I stayed at this hotel because a friend recommended the food...

Me and my friends stayed here for 3 nights and had the most spectacular time. Everything about the stay was perfection. The rooms are large, clean and spacious, with a fantastic view and balcony. The beds were mega comfortable and everything was well cared for after you came back in the afternoon. Everything you could need was provided. The beach/pool...

This hotel is not the new kid on the block – it’s been around for a while. If want a room with the latest in fixtures and a gym with working equipment you may want to skip it. But if you do so you are going to miss a nice place to stay. It is rather quint and exudes a...

“Probably the higher floors would offer less noise from the beach level. Some rooms had access to Net-Flix but most rooms didn't.”
