Well the first thing you see is PINK. Yep, the place is PINK, so you won't get lost trying to find it after a long day of beach and suds. But it's the service you will remember. Nero (owner?) took great care of us. Fun place, clean rooms, good water pressure, good rates, and excellent host.!

As always, a wonderful stay. You never know what surprises await you here. From the unplanned breakfast tacos to the pool side parties, a stay here is always a great experience. The Jungle Theme room was incredible. The decor was extremely well done. Nero and his merry men ( and women) do a fantastic job. For a true Island experience,...

The manager would be a great second hand car seller. We contacted this place after reading the reviews here. Still, the latest and positive reviews come from single contributors and on its site the hotel links under "reviews" directly to TA-reviews(...). Anyway, when we arrived the man put us a key in our hands saying that he had computer problems...

Nero was more than helpful and I felt like we were staying at his house rather than at a hotel. The first night we stayed, the whole staff barbecued and gladly invited us to partake when we returned to the hotel. We had three other groups stay at the same time from San Antonio and they also had a great...
