Actually delicious typical food - the best waffles I've had in PV and great mexican food as well - excellent pozole and birria. The property is older,...

I loved our stay here and will definitely return for the same rate! Cost efficient for those on a budget yet still worried about safety and enjoyment. We stayed on the 6th floor of the south tower.

While not a high end resort and they do not purport to be one, this was a surprisingly enjoyable week. We were in a one bedroom in the south tower.

“Rooms are large and comfortable, though the older rooms (my favorite) are not modern or luxurious. The rooms on the 2 top floors in the south building can have a lot of road noise during the day and sometimes during the night. I also suggest bringing water shoes, for the beach can be full of uncomfortable pebbles. Walking out into the water can be difficult without them.”
