The property is old and run down! There are decaying boards in the walkway that are in need of replacement. The pool looks ok at first glance but when you look closer it’s just like the walkway. The room was clean but very old. The new tile floors and shower help distract from that fact at first. But the beds were mattresses only on 40 year old frames and are not very comfortable. The curtains would not close because they were torn at the top and needed replaced. There were a couple things that are pleasant. It was quiet. Probably because we were the only ones there. The food was amazing! I don’t know where they found their cook but he belongs in a much better restaurant The main thing that disappointed us the most is the misleading rating that was on Expedias sight. 4.3 for cleanliness was in the headlines instead of the hotels overall rating.

I was stunned because I expected less for the price. The rooms have enough space, perfectly design for a couple, they are clean, staffs are friendly and attentive. Also good food. Hotel is 2 miles away from Carrillo Beach (one of the most beautiful in the region). I will definitely visit again.

Muy bonito el lugar, todos muy amables, la habitación muy hermosa. El desayuno que incluyen definitivamente no es continental, son tostadas con tocineta y lo demás se cobra aparte. Fuera de eso todo bien.

Has potential.
The hotel was pretty isolated from all the others. Only a short 10 min drive to get to the center of town. It’s a small hotel. It might need some renovations and a deep clean of the pool. The pool was pretty green from algae.. I would stay again if offered some sort of deal. This place has a lot of potential. A few changes and aesthetic adjustment.. and this place would be a really really nice place to spend time in.
