I know....why do you need wi-fi in a relaxed place like Puerto Escondido? Well, we are addicted to our e-mails and news at home and Facebook. So we were quite unhappy when the signal either couldn't be found by our computers or wasn't strong enough to get to the third floor. We tried connecting at the restaurant, also without success, though did see people connected there the following day. The signal never worked in four full days in our room.
Otherwise, the hotel is very beautiful. It is on somewhat of a hill, so it has very nice views of the sea, one beach, and possibly the sunset, though not in January...the sun sets too far north.
Though it is not a new hotel, it has been very well taken care of. The suite that we stayed in on the top floor was in excellent condition, and very spacious. Given all the space, I have to say that it could have been better furnished to be better utilized...for example a workdesk, and more comfortable chairs. Also, there was not a three-prong plug, and my friend had a laptop that needed an adapter to connect....in vain, after we found that there was no wi-fi.
The pool area seems nice enough, though we didn't use it much, preferring the beach. My friend took a short swim one evening without comment.
The front desk people were quite friendly and helpful regarding directions.
The service in the restaurant at breakfast was quite slow, even when not busy. I had my companion order an unwanted coffee so that I would have a second cup ready when I finished mine.
All in all, though the hotel and room were clean and spacious, and the location good, I would probably try another place next time.
