    Our check in clerk was miserable, short with us and unfriendly when asked basic questions. Upon check out, we experienced the same. Unless you're in the upgraded area of the hotel, expect a sad little basic room with a questionable looking bathroom/shower - not depicted in the photo gallery of the property.

    The first room we were given was a slum overlooking a noisy street, it did have a great shower. The next was bigger cleaner and airy. Although paying twice what we had paid at Encino and El Pescador it was no better than either. No comp hot drinks, no way to make them, promised 2 bottles of water per day never delivered. Great location on beach, but you can have this from anywhere in the city for a 10 peso bus ride

    great location, nice staff, curtains in the rooms could be changed, seemed like they had been hanging there since the 70's

    Very Good 8.0
    I like that you are right by the beach and the views are incredible. I didn't like that they have increased the price on the rooms and food but no improvement, still they don't have the food labelling weather it is spicy or not so you have to guess and try it and if it is not to your liking people just have it thrown in the garbage. I didn't like that they haven't done anything in the bathroom or closet as upgrades. They still haven't upgraded the internet in the 14 years we have been coming here and it is frustrating because of little wi-fi availability.

    Very Good 8.0
    The location is superb! The rooms were very very basic, but nice towels, air conditioner worked great. Do NOT take the adventure boats from in front of this hotel. The people at the stalls gave incorrect info and the 2 of us were quite upset. They said $40 US and everything else free.....snacks on boat, booze, lunch, hikes. Then, we had to pay just to take a small boat to get to the catarmaran! Then, the snacks were bags of chips that they made us pay for! Then, after our hike in jungle, that took up til 3 pm and lunch at 3:30! We were starved. They didnt say to take bottles of water on hike, or sneakers for difficult walking. And the worst was they didn't even drop us off where they picked us up! We got on the boat right in front of our Hotel, San Marino. It wasn't until we were ON the boat and moving that we found out they do NOT drop you off where they picked you up, they take you all the way across town to the Marina, and then you find your own way back! After walking thru cruise ship terminal and onto highway for a bus, then bus back to hotel....45 extra minutes. Good thing we took pesos with us, because it definitely was not free. Oh, and when we had lunch....we had to PAY for drinks because lunch was not on the catarmaran. I would go to this hotel again for a superb location. Just watch out for those so called all inclusive boat trips. The drinks were even awful.

    Good location, beach access and pools. Room was large but old and in need of paint and updating. We had to request cleaning, as the bathroom was dirty. No hairdryer in room and only one hand towel, 2 bath towels and soap provided. Lots of good restaurants, night life and shopping within easy walking distance.
