My family of four chose the Villas El Rancho because my parents have been staying there for 20+ years now. We stayed a total of 12 night as we were not able to be accommodated for the additional 2 nights of our vacation due to a medical conference that was happening - we knew this going to Mexico and although...

The Old resort is in a beautiful setting but there is a total lack of maintenance that has resulted in the units having mold in them. We had a problem with the mold and had to leave early becuase my wife started having trouble breathing. This was also happening to other people that were in the unit next to the... More

Not only were the cooking facilities not usable (stove had one working burner), rest was very rusty, but there were small bugs throughout the unit -got into everything. The electrical was the most dangerous. Individual wires ran to the 220 V water heater which you could only use when the breaker was pushed hard "on" and held there. A/C would... More

Villas El rancho brings back memories of old Mexico -kitchens and baths inundated with ants, hot tubs that are cold or don't work, water turned off in the middle of the day, gate men who turn the parking lot over to young thugs, security guards who drink on the job and don't do anything and poorly equipped kitchens. I feel... More

The restaurant, bar, pool and beach were very nice for a small place. This place should be called Rustic Bungalows" not "Villas". The villa was horrible.

Ideal for a quiet family holiday, the beachfront villas are the best, the restaurant very nice and comfortable, i loved the view. very comfortably furnished villas. The hotel away from the noise and traffic, excellent place to relax and enjoy family, who needs television when you have the sea front.
