We spent 22 nights here. November 10 to December 1. We haven’t been to MX since 2001 and came with no plans and no expectations. This has been the most relaxing vacation of our lives . When we come back we are most certainly staying here again!
The location is perfect. Bus stop

is there smoking allowed on balconies and around the pool area?
Dear Mr. Brian, smoking it is allowed on your balcony with the door closed and at any other open area, as long as you are not smoking inside the room or any closed area there will be no problem. Mexican law has forbidden for everyone to smoke in a closed space, you can be charged with a penalty fee for it. Thank you and looking forward to be your host pretty soon! Personal regards, Guadalupe M. Ramírez/Hotel Manager
