Great hotel
Wonderful hotel - great location for starters! The rooms with the kitchenette are worth the upgrade from the basic rooms which are VERY basic. The (kitchenette) room I stayed in is slightly dated but very clean & the bed was very comfortable. The property itself is also well maintained with staff constantly sweeping & cleaning up. The shower had great pressure & lots of hot water - not always what you find in Mexico! Good wifi in the building - not excellent IN the room but strong in the common areas. The cons: being a green building your key card controls the AC, lights etc - you leave the room with the key; everything (except the fridge) powers off - the room was constantly sweltering hot when you returned after a day out as there was no way to keep the AC going & no fan. The shared balconies are fine but I did not feel safe to leave the balcony door open to get a fresh breeze over night as it would allow any room I shared space with access. No elevator access & no offer to help carry my bags up the 2 flights of stairs; small but could be difficult if you are not able bodied. The pool is surrounded by the Coexist restaurant - unless you're fine with every dining guest watching you swim it's awkward. All in all, I enjoyed my stay & would recommend the hotel to others.
