No tenían desayuno disponible en el restaurante del hotel ni en ningún restaurante cerca para poder desayunar temprano. Poco personal disponible, en muchas ocasiones no había nadie en el lobby del hotel para atendernos. NO he recibido el balance final de la cuenta ni el reembolso de la cantidad que retienen, eso usualmente se hace al momento del checkout, la primera vez que me indican que lo harán luego y que me lo enviarían por correo electrónico. Somos una pareja que viajamos mucho y nunca me había pasado esta situación.

Receptionist very friendly and helpful. Check in was a breeze. Helped us get a vehicle for island travel (a perk of staying at El Blok was free pickup from our hotel). Continental breakfast served each morning in the breezy, open air restaurant. Provided free beach chairs and towels (so no need to pack those!). The shampoo/conditioner/soaps smelled lovely (no need to pack toiletries either). Very conveniently located, walking distance to convenience store and several great restaurants. We loved our stay so much we extended our stay by one night!

Disaster

I didn't have service for hole day and I need personally to request from Guest Service. Regarding breakfast very poor. Only orange juice was fresh.

Beautiful inside/ exterior photos are deceiving

Pros: Pay extra for a corner room! Big wrap-around balcony and room is twice the size. King bed. Shower is really nice. Rain shower and hand shower. cool.
Cons: Hot tub- looking dipping pool on the roof should be warmer so you can get in it to enjoy the sunset. It is so beautiful up there.Brrrrrr. Clean up lot
Location: Right in town across from lovely beach. Hike (wade) to little island,up a cliff for cool view. AM beach yoga.Best fresh coconut smoothies at big beach
Booked this for the architecture and cool- looking vibe. First impression was a shock since pics illude to a big white oasis with lush green surroundings on the beach. Pulled in to messy construction site surrounded by vacant lots and the noisy, bustling ratty-tat micro- town of Esperanza. All four of us were surprised and disappointed. Hello, Photoshop! We dragged our discouraged bodies into the hotel. The staff was very accommodating, the rooms are super nice and comfortable, the view from the roof is great ( hot-tub looking dipping pool is too cold to get in to enjoy sunset. That could be warm and inviting!)
