Room was great with a large bed and a hot shower that overlooked the ocean. The staff were extremely helpful despite by bad Spanish. Only complaint was that wifi was only available in the lobby which made planning a little bit difficult when you are on the 10th floor.

If only I had seen the poor reviews before my mother-in-law had booked this hotel through a travel agency, I would have paid more money for a better hotel. As soon as you walk in you can tell it is cheap, there is no air conditioning in the lobby just a massive fan put on the wall, I felt sorry... More

When we first got to the hotel, our room wasn't ready so we went to the rooftop pool while we waited but when we got there, the pool was so dirty with scum it wasn't inviting plus, all the chairs needed to be changed.
