No limpiaron el cuarto ninguno de los días que estuvimos en el hotel, no había jabón para lavarse las manos, ni para bañarse, por lo que no están siguiendo los protocolos para evitar la propagación del Covid-19. Tampoco había shampoo, ni rinse y en las habitaciones no había televisores. Además, no hay buena iluminación en las piscinas y en una de ellas (la grande) cuando oscurece hay que irse, porque no se ve nada, esto a pesar de que en los rótulos dice que las piscinas se pueden utilizar hasta las 10 pm.

This is a very nice hotel right on the beach. The overall atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for...very laid back and not overly busy which allowed us to relax and enjoy our vacation. The staff is awesome and very friendly. The food and drinks are excellent and very reasonably priced. We took a surf lesson through the hotel and the surf instructors were just as friendly and fun. The beach is all fine sand and is perfect for walking at all times of the day. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk from the downtown area which is an added bonus. We had no complaints at all about this hotel. We would definitely go back.

We paid extra for an ocean view room but to see the ocean, we had to go outside the room. Windows were facing the pool, which required keeping curtains closed at all times or be on view. Included breakfast, which was pretty much the same every day. Became unappealing. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were not spotless, but clean - linens were clean. Beautiful setting, great sunsets. Non-smoking but was not enforced on the grounds.

Good hotel close to the beach, communication issue

Pros: Location and restaurant/bar service
Cons: The late checkout service, that isn't good at all! communication with the reception about this service is not good, not customer oriented.
Location: visiting other restaurants, going to the beach
Overall experience was good, the food is very good and most people working there gave us a great services, except for the bad service we received with the "late checkout"; they offered us that option since we arrived and told us we could stay late by paying extra per additional hour. I talked to the receptionist the last day of my staying in the morning and told me that we could stay late and I just had to call 15min before the usual checkout time (12md CRT) and he specifically said "to avoid having the cleaning people getting into the room to get my stuff out by mistake". So I didn't get my stuff ready and went to the beach since I already had the verbal "ok" of my late checkout, then returned for a moment to call the reception and remind them I arranged to get out late or do "late checkout"; the same receptionist tells me "no you can't I already have people waiting for your room" which got me very upset and surprised, i had to run getting my stuff ready and my girlfriend's. It was a very unpleasant and upsetting. On the other hand, we had an excellent service from the bartender Alejandra, she was wonderful to us.
