I stumbled on this little sweetheart by accident. It was wonderful! Quaint little room, clean with lots of personality, colourful tiles, comfortable bed. Close to everything, a short walk to the beach and lots of restaurants. Staff was super friendly and willing to help. I could not have been happier, and the price was very reasonable.

We were not familiar with property and decided to gave it a try. I cannot express how happy were with everything! The location is wonderful. All of the staff were super friendly and welcoming. Our room was close to Miguel's, but we did not hear anything. The best part was our suite. It was a great room had outstanding features....

Perfect location. Kitchens WITH plates, pans and all you need. Service could not be better! My family loves it year after year. We do miss the breakfast buffet. Hope they bring it back. Rooms are all different and unique. And everything is in walking distance.

Just a short walk to the most beautiful beach! The staff was so friendly. I would have given it a 5, but because of the location, it is quite noisy (which I don't mind, but some people would). Lastly, you can also hear right through the walls. If you want quiet, probably not the best choice, but if you want...

I had a great stay at the El Cordova Hotel. I had a little difficulty locating the front office. The layout of the hotel is different. The hotels had shops and restaurants but the rooms are located towards the back of the property. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating, especially since I forgot to inform the credit company that...

Perfect location. Just a block or two away from the beach. Love the Spanish-style building and decor. The one-bedroom suite was great. The kitchenette was nicely stocked and practical for storing and heating leftovers. Also, the food at the Mexican restaurant located in the center had good food.

Awesome room, awesome location. Great views and close to all. Highly recommend this Hotel. Rooms were bright and had great ammenities. Certainly not a quiet location so if you're looking for peace and quiet, not the right place. Perfect for the occasion that we attended due to location.
