My favorite hotel ever, although not real fancy. HUGE Rooms, huge private balconies, and the most amazing view ever. Very friendly service. Very clean and also very dated. (not new but very cool Old Mexico:)

I can't remember the room numbers now but, I would recommend to ask for the level below the Sunset Bar and on the south side. We were told that a couple of those were redone. The walk to the beach will have less stairs from... More
