I had read some of the reviews and was apprehensive about our accommodation but was pleasantly surprised. Our room was clean and comfortable and we had no issues with bugs. It was hot but the fans were effective. One negative was that the shower did not drain well so we got water all over the place. We had been warned...

This review is more about what the hotel is not, rather that what it is. The photos do sort of show what it is like, but dont show the cockroaches or the ants. Yes it is near the beach, but the beach is at the bottom of the cliff with a steep slope, to the hotel rooms at the top....

There aren't many nice things to say about this hotel. The pool is amazing and has views out to the sea. The sunrise over this aspect (also visible from the rooms) is stunning. The hammocks on each balcony are a nice way to spend an afternoon. The beach at the bottom of the property has warm, calm waters to swim...

The place is actually really nice, the views from the dinning area and pool are great! But service is poor, we got there at 8pm and it was raining nuts, they told us the room and I had to go looking through the hotel under the rain! (it was far and their instructions were poor). they told us there was...

Our stay at Altamira Mazunte was about as perfect as it gets. This beautiful facility had easy access to both the beach and to town, but was off the beaten path enough to be quiet and private. Altamira provides opportunities to hike out to Punta Comeda and to other local beaches, and to take a motor boat wildlife tour of...

What makes this spot so fantastic is definitely the location and spectacular view. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast here and stayed a night in one of the rooms. The place seemed very well maintained, tidy and clean. We loved our room and bathroom. A comfortable bed, sheets & sturdy mosquito net. Plenty of shelves and storage space and...

Cabanas with beautiful view of the beach. We stayed here for 5 nights over christmas and really enjoyed it. The bedsheats and towels were a bit stained. The restaurant serves a good breakfast at a decent price. If animals like frogs and the odd cockroach bothers you, well then you shouldn't stay in a bungalow located in the trees by...

Truely spectacular views spoil the sad reality. I got their most expensive cabana with the best view - what a steal I thought. I got bitten every night by bedbugs. The view was so great that I stayed; I just won't go back. Previous night I had stayed at their sister hotel in Puerto Angel "Buena Vista", and got bedbugs...

We were booked to stay in Alta Mira two nights but only ended up staying one night because we were pretty grossed out by the place. When we first arrived, a really nice woman who works there showed us a room in a building with a few other rooms. Even with all the windows open it was, cavernous, dark, dingy...
