My cousin was getting married at another hotel down the beach, so we decided to stay here to attend the festivities over the weekend. We originally booked two nights, but had to cancel one a day before because of unforeseen issues. I called up and spoke to the person who picked up the phone, first in Spanish, and when I...

We got married here on November 15, 2015 right on the beach! It was a great setting which the hotel completely set up (decorations and such). We had a dinner right on the beach as well with a great bon fire! The staff at the hotel did a wonderful job serving us and even knew us by name and what...

Was staying down the road and sent there for dinner. We sat out door's and enjoyed the view of the ocean. My meal was delicious and well spiced maui-maui fish.

I decided to take a short vacation to relax and found this hotel. I read some reviews and all seemed to be good. With no doubt I called and made the reservation. The entrance to get to the hotel is not very visible and no big announcements. I had to use my phone GPS and had no problem to get...

Terrible experience. After I had to cancel a reservation within the allowed time frame, they said they will give you the money back but they never did. Calls and go back and forward and all I've got so far are terrible excuses. The person in charge is never available and no wants to take the responsibility. Don't even take a...

This hotel is located in a great place. From the arrival you just forget about the rest of the world, the place is quiet relaxing and the food on the restaurant is good. At the time I was there a new administration was taking in charge of the hotel and some of my recommendations were very well received by the...

I didn't spend a night or have dinner, but I did have a great experience at the bar both before and after a horse ride booked with Diego of Adventure Riding. The beach and grounds are gorgeous, and we were were well cared for while there.

Two months preview to our visit we made a reservation at this hotel, but we had to cancel a month before due to personal reasons. We tried to get our deposit money back but they wouldn't reply saying it had to be managed by a specific lady who after several phone calls never showed up, never returned our emails. We...

I guess I have to disagree with a lot of reviewers here. My family and stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Honestly, if not for the beach or very nice ladies at the front desk, this hotel would be getting one star. The hotel IS located on a beautiful beach. Can't deny that. First - no hlp with luggage....
