We stayed at the hotel for a week in january. The place is nice but looks bad because is not clean enough and the staff service is poor. Near from the beach I find the location ideal but you need the car to move in the night . Breakfast costs 10 dolars and is really awful !

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in January 2012 + Well located between Punta and La Barra + Reasonably good breakfast + Kitchen personal is very good + Large lounge area downstairs + Nice Pool (albeit a bit dirty for U.S. standards) - Unhelpful and unfriendly reception/front desk (whatever you ask, the answer will be "no we can't...

I went to Punta in New Years, when the hotel are really expensive, so we tried to go to a simple hotel to don't spend too much. That was what we got. Some rooms are new and other ones are really old (the one that I took). The maintenance of the hotel are really bad, windows are broken and pool...

Great place, a little far from anything really. I rented a scooter for 24hours at 40$ which made the difference. The rooms was really nice and clean. Someone was complaining about a little window in one of the comments, it's a big enough window. They were very accommodating as we wanted to stay an extra night at our rate. Also...

Great value and not a bad hotel given that it seems quite a bit older than surrounding buildings. However the place is seriously let down by the absolutely abysmal lack of any hint of Customer Service by the reception staff - service with a scowl more like. Given that it is just under 3 miles away from the main bus...

I have stayed here several times. Other than January, when everything is overpriced, this place is great. In a fairly quiet area and close to the beach. Staff is great and I would be happy to return again.

We were very skeptical due to all the reviews of the hotel. However, it was really not bad. The hotel is in a decent location close to the beach and the bus even though not in the peninsula. It's very easy to get there by bus. The manager is very helpful even though other staffs are not as competent. The...

I have been there with my partner in January. It was high season and the prices where extremely high. Unfortunately the standard of the service where not high, they were mostly poor. Check in with reservation mistake made by the front/back office staff so we had to change room after 1 night to get the room with balcony booked. The...

Completely deceiving! They give you the room without cleaning! No security what so ever, anyone can come into your room & when they...
