Spent 2 nights this past weekend and great location, great staff. The view for Breakfast overlooking the Rio Grande is always spectacular and food was very good. Safe environment and not too far from the town, beaches. I would like to thank Andrea, Mrs. Miller and Novelette for taking very good care of us.

What a beautiful gem! We stayed in Amore Villa, and couldn't get enough of the view of the Rio Grande from the balcony. The bed was comfortable, and the room clean. The staff was very helpful setting up activities, and the view sitting under the gazebo for breakfast can't be beat! The villa had all the necessities, including a kitchenette....

You cannot fault the view from this hotel - absolutely stunning over the Rio Grande. Our room (Amore) was spacious with a very big bed and a small kitchen area with fridge/freezer, oven and hob, crockery/cutlery etc. The balcony was ideal for sitting watching the world drift past even when it was raining heavily. The pool is a nice size...

We booked the Amore and the promise of a stunning view lived up to expectations. It was a lovely spacious room with beautiful fresh flower arrangements and extremely comfortable bed. It is also true that you can lie in bed and look over the Rio Grande. It also has a little kitchen area which was very useful for the more...

We enjoyed the silence and beauty of this place high above the rio vista very much! The only two drawbacks were our room (we had the standard room which is a bit too simple and consists of a bed, a chair and no balcony - we heard from other guests that the other rooms must be much nicer) and the...

We stayed here for the weekend, since stopping by for coffee back in April. We fell in love with the view from the dining area.

From the moment we arrived I was in "awww". The view is perfect of the Rio Grande river..the room was very intimate and cozy. Fresh linen and towels daily and room cleaned daily was a plus.
