    Nice place, clean updated older hotel with modern touch. Area is a little interesting so if you want to go into the main town area I'd take an uber. Pool was decent and restaurant was fun. Service was good as well.

    YES you can, also the IFE/INE card works, however passport is more "international" since it more official outside of Mexico. There is a different approach with Car rental since they required an ID with your address. Enjoy!

    Unless you are on the 5th floor, you aren't really seeing much of anything. The pool view isn't too bad. You aren't really staying here for the view from the hotel.
