    Nice room, good food and local beers and good wine selection at the bar. The staff was very welcoming and fast at checkin. The room is clean and nicely appointed. The food in the restaurant was delicious, the Clam Chowder especially.

    YES you can, also the IFE/INE card works, however passport is more "international" since it more official outside of Mexico. There is a different approach with Car rental since they required an ID with your address. Enjoy!
