Loved every second of being at La Puerta Del Sol! Very close to town and the beach. Also the pool and bar area were amazing! Would definitely come back.

2/10 Poor

The only good thing to say about this was that the receptioniat was friendly and nice. However, that is the only good thing I have to say. Do not let the pictures fool you. I dont ever leave reviews, however I hope this review will help somebody who is looking to stay here. I expected bugs outside, I even expected bugs in the lobbies. But not in the bed. The door had openings which allowed unwanted bugs to come in and out as they pleased and the whole time my girlfriend and I were there it just felt uncomfortable. There was no cleaning it seemed even though we requested it. We didnt get someone to come to clean until we checked out. So if you dont like uncleanliness.. stay away. Oh and in order to get a refund, I had to call Expedia on about 5-6 occassions and spoke to multiple people who told me they couldnt give me a refund unless the manager approved the refund. Each agent tried contacting the manager to no avail. You can't get ahold of this manager it seems. Eventually Expedia worked around it (finally). We had to spend extra money to go to the Hilton right across the Liberia airport, and it was money well spent. I would recommend the Hilton Garden Inn.

Room flooded through door when it rained. Ants, termites, and spiders in room. Very eco friendly. Our room was a block away from check in resort. Interesting stay, but wouldn’t stay there again.

This property was great for divers. One should be aware there are two room options one is located around corner from the pool and garden bar. this is what I recommend for divers looking for an economy stay with all the benefits of the pool and garden bar. I can not say enough about the staff at this property. They were fantastic. The Chef is amazing, the big boss Claudia was so sweet and helpful, the bar and wait staff all spoke English and were so fun to hang out with. They made every day at the pool and bar a fun place to hang out. The girls running the office Mar and another girl were always so helpful with anything we needed like contacting tour providers. I will definitely stay here again.

6/10 Good

Ok for being so close to the beach
The room had a lot of ants crawling on bedroom and bathroom floor. The air conditioning was challenging to control but it did work well in that it blew really cold air when needed. Overall this felt more like a motel than anything else and the main thing it had going for it, in my eyes, was the proximity to the beach, which was very convenient.
