I actually had my doubts because the pictures looked incredible, we drove trough iztapa and into Monterrico when we first saw the El faro sign and we took a left into a dirt road in the middle of pashte fields, then we finally saw the huge gate, as the security guard lets us in the parking lot we started seeing how beautiful the hotel really was, not to mention the gorgeus front desk staff, the check in was the easiest and fastest I have ever experienced, as she showed us to our beautiful room, we walked through the pool area, at that point I knew I was gonna have a great time. The owners thought this out well, from the design to the towels and sheets, very nice place. They have a great food selection, but there still work to be done, they have the idea but they have to improve it, I ordered ahi tuna, they must of froze it and attempted to rapidly thaw it out by stick in the microwave, but that just cooked it, when this dish is well known for being served raw, but over all the food was good. I have to congratulate the bar tender at the pool, the guy just killed it with every drink I asked for, well made with quality liquor, mixers and made from scratch lime juice, best micheladas, margaritas and pina colodas I have ever tasted. The pool is huge and great for the whole family, i could be drinking, swimming, relaxing at the room's front porch or eating at the restaurant and always have my kids within site.
