4/10 Fair

Amazing views is about all this place has to offer. Property is not msintained well with overgrown landscaping. Pool is filthy. Breakfast options are the same everyday. Bar wont charge to room and makrs you pay for every transaction. Pool towels are undersized and bleach stained. Rooms have no safes, clocks, hand towels or racks, not even a toilet paper holder. Just missing on alot of stuff that is normal

6/10 Good

The good: The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The view from the restaurant is amazing. The hotel is only 10 min away from Reserva Conchal, the best beach around. The hotel has a private beach (but it is a long walk down a path of stairs to get there) The bad: The pool area is very neglected, the pool was dirty. There was a wedding going on while we were there, and they had a party for two days in a row; the second day, we could not sleep at all, they had a DJ and mariachi right outside our window, and the party ended at 2:00 am. the day of the wedding we could not use the facilities, not even the restaurant. So if you are looking to relax, make sure you check they will not have any events during your stay. The access to the beach was very steep. We only visited the beach once while we were there since I am pregnant and I was afraid of falling. The hotel was ok, but I would not go back there. It was not the peaceful experience I was expecting for my vacation.
