6/10 Good

Beautiful location, comfortable room and nice staff. What made our stay terrible is the fact they do not accept credit cards and did not disclaimed it on their listing. At 7pm when we arrived they asked for the full amount cash (yes, we supposedly paid half online, but it was just a deposit) there is no ATM within 30Km/20miles around, Boca de Yuma is a little town. We ended up driving over 1 hour to get cash from the ATM (included a high fee from it because our accounts were from USA) and almost $150 in Uber. Ridiculous! this situation literally ruined our short stay, breakfast was included (as per the website and my receipt) but at the reception we were told nothing was included with our room...... Absurd!!!! The owner was in the hotel the last day and I bet he saw the frustration in our faces and after back and forth with the staff about the included breakfast, he decided to offer us a free dinner. Thanks for that. This place has a lot of potential, but definitely needs A LOT of improvement, specially in the payments area. I wish I could recommend this place because I really like it, but based on my personal experience, I would wait a couple of years until technology gets there.

Excellent hotel, dirty town
Overall the experience was perfect. The hotel met all expectations. We really enjoyed the room, the view of the hotel and the restaurant. And the pool helps when it is very hot. The only bad thing about the trip was the dirtiness of the town. The 3 tourist places that exist in the town were overflowing with dirt. Locals left trash everywhere and ruined such beautiful places.

4/10 Fair

Needs better management
The view stunning, the room was clean, The problem was Lack of communication about the services they provided, example no hot water we had to ask, to clean room we had to ask, breakfast they ran out and would not get more, to be honest it felt like they did not cared about the service they provided because if they did they would be proactive and not just do the bare minimum, that it was how it came across, lovely place, best one in the area, needs better management and an overhaul done if not there would not be repeat customer, and sincerely has lots of potential, will come back when things are revamped.
