I decided to stay at this hotel because some people recommend it, however the first night We just found out that everything was a complete nightmare, the staff in reception have no clue of customer service when I complain about the room, which was a mess, towels with blood stains, filthy floors, just horrible nightmare. My recommendation will be to... More

I guess this is a good option in the area, fair price and clean facilities. Way much better than the Maeva , which we visited in our previous trip. No elevator but it's only a two story building. The staff was nice , the room thermostat didn't work properly, we were too cold at night. The beach area was clean.... More

Had a great time in this place. The food was great and the employees where very friendly. This is a great place to travel to, if you are looking to stay in the beach at an affordable price. Also, I really liked that it had to pools. I would really recommend this place to my friends and family.

I recently went for a wedding and overall I had a good experience. I went on a raining/cool week so I didn't get to enjoy the pool or the beach but I have been to that beach before and its beautiful. Nothing compared to Galveston if your from Houston/Galveston. The service was great, the only down fall was no elevators!... More

It's a shame and a robbery. When, during check out, we told politely to the manager about all the problems my friends and i had had, she inmediatley reacted in a defensive manner and the only thing she dared to do was to ask with a rude expression in her face: "well, you should have told us before". We said... More

Booked the hotel with out reccomendation. What luck!! The staff was so friendly.. spoke some English... and very helpful. We were given the Master Suite at a considerable discount because the hotel was fully booked. The Master Suite has two bedroom and two baths, a mini kitchen and a small living room. For two people it was way too much,... More

I went for a family wedding and loved the place. You'll find the staff is strict about following policies but it's not their fault. The service is great and for the wedding everything was done properly. Had the suite which is great for up to 8 people, with lots of room, a small fridge and a microwave. The main pool... More

Stay out from here! I spent 3 nights at that “luxury” hotel just in front of the beach of Tampico, Mexico. Some friends recommend me the hotel because is close to some business that I had to attend.

Be careful that you are not confusing this hotel in TAMPICO, Tamaulipas, Mexico (Formerly Brisas del Mar) with the Arenas del Mar near Quepos, Costa Rica. Several of the reviews are clearly NOT for the Tampico Property! This hotel along the Playa Miramar in Madero is great for families and budget vacationers, but if you are really looking for a...
