I would like to know if there are 2 d=bedroom suites and if so, what would a monthly rental be for Jan 29 to Mar 2. Thank you
Buen día, ¿cuenta con estacionamiento?
"We booked a Superior room, on 3rd floor, view of sea and pool below."
"If you don't like A.C. you are out of luck as the rooms do not have ceiling fans"
"Stay out of this hotel. If you must stay here select 1st or 2nd flr, check air conditioning remote and of course bring your own Cold Beer and bottle water ..."

"Top floor rooms have the best view; Restaurant is on the second floor."
