This resort is an older property desperately in need of an update. However the grounds were beautiful and the location is great. This is no 5, 4, or 3 star resort but it is safe and clean. The staff is very accommodating and welcoming. Considering we only needed somewhere to shower and sleep, for the price this was perfect for us.

Dear Wendy, I appreciate your comments. Our hotel is an old property as you say, that's why we work hard to keep it functional and in a good shape. Thank you for your patronage. Our staff and I, we hope to be at your service again. Sincerely

Loved that it was smaller and quieter. Nice grounds, good food, good service. It was not one of the new big fancy resorts, which is why we liked it. The bathrooms were a little dated but clean.

I really don't know where to start... I read all the reviews on this place and it seemed like the worst thing that was mentioned was that the fixtures were painted. There are so many things worse than the painted fixtures, I feel like I could write a book. Our room had dirty underwear in the closet. The walls are paper thin, and you can literally hear your neighbors breathe. The beds are so hard, like plain, old, thin, hard mattresses from 1970, with no pillow-top or cushion AT ALL. There is a mini fridge in the room, but it stays just warm enough to grow mold. The phone in our room didn't work. The clock radio alarm was set to go off at 3am every morning, and the off button was broken and you can't even unplug it because it's hard-wired into the wall so no one will steal it. They show that they have 2 bars, but the pool bar is only open 11am to 5pm, and the lobby bar doesn't open until 4pm, so there's basically only 1 bar open at a time. The pool bar is run down and falling apart. It has a line all day because there's only one bartender working the counter. Most of the chairs on the beach and pool are broken, the cushions are filthy and stained. The fixtures in the tiny restroom by the pool are leaking and broken. The four things this hotel has going for it is: The beer is cold (when you can actually get one), the location is great, the waiters are friendly, and it's a small hotel, so you can access your room easily from anywhere on the premises. NEVER GOING BACK!!!

You get what you pay for.

Pros: The staff were very cordial and attentive.
Cons: Get digital room safes. Get fridges for all your rooms, and not the compact ones you supply. Have your buffet photos show what it is really like.
Location: We love snorkeling but the rough waves made it hard to walk in from the beach. The Santa Maria beach was the best for lots of fish.
It is a typical three star hotel. Do not expect much more than basic amenities. The pictures they have on their webpage are not fully correct. The rooms are OK, and kept clean, but there are issues we had in ours. One of the bedside lamps was hanging loose. I reported this and all they did was re-tape the wiring. The bathroom was tired looking. The drawers underneath the TV wouldn't open and close properly. There are no elevators. They supply two bottles of water on the first day, and ask that you refill these to save trash, which is commendable but the water cooler is located on the bottom floor only at the entrance, and it is not kept full often. Don't think about going in to the sea at the hotel beach. The hotel ropes off the beach and advises that you do not go in the water. The reason being that the sea is very rough and the waves crash on to the beach, so there is a chance of being in an undertow. There is only one restaurant and it is not anything like the picture they show. It is more basic and some of the food is not very warm. The room showing the computers is much more smaller than show, and again, more basic. We called the hotel weeks before we were going there, as we booked a garden view, and on the webpage it said fridge needed to be requested, but they said only the ocean views had fridges. We had to update to an ocean view. The in-room safe is key operated, not digital, so you had to carry the key all the time. So think twice before you book.

Great honeymoon!

Pros: It had character and was very comfortable, like visiting family.
Cons: It could use some updating, but again, not a huge deal for us.
Location: There are great restaurants and shops nearby. This is the quiet area - if you are looking for a party, stay in Cabo San Lucas.
Our experience was excellent - the room was comfortable, the food was great, and the service was excellent. This is not a fancy hotel, but that's not what we were looking for when we booked. It was a great place to stay, and they were very accommodating, even with a tropical storm! We will definitely be back.

Family Hotel

Pros: The Staff and the friendly atmosphere.
Cons: The rooms.
Location: There was tours which they pic you up and bring you back witch is great. the morninglory tour was great.
Great resort all inclusive. Food and bar always available. This resort is more for families. If you want the nite life this is not the place. This is more to relax. The rooms are a little outdated. I have to say the pics on site must be old. it was a pleasant stay since the staff was great very friendly. The bar tender really knows his drinks especially the evening one.

We enjoyed the stay for the price, great value!

Pros: Already mentioned
Cons: Fix rooms, have English speaking and understanding front desk clerks
Location: Good location in town and great beach!
Great value since it included breakfast and drinks. Problem was when I booked on line, air and hotel for one person, the reservation did say breakfast and drinks for 2, so I was being met by a friend from Florida who booked her own air, the hotel charged us $25 extra per night. She was sharing my room, included breakfast for 2 but they charged her for sharing my room??? Desk staff never helpful and no English spoken, made it hard, stopped going to the desk for help since they never understood. Room was old and falling apart in places but clean, nice maids. Good waiters, good food, good drinks, nice pool, nice beach and service on beac, nice chairs and setup on beach.
