At the time we...

This hotel was lovely. Location, it is quite near to the main plaza. The gardens of the hotel are quite pretty and well maintained. The rooms are good size, clean but it was so cold. Even with extra blankets we struggled with getting warm. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel so this wasn't too much of an...

We stayed at the Arrecife del Coral for 3 nights. The first night there was a lot of noise from a party next to the hotel, but otherwise it was quite quiet. The rooms are small but alright if you only use them to shower and sleep. WiFi only works in the reception and restaurant area. As the hotel offers...

Nice setting, easy walk to city centre and restaurants. Travelling with a group, we received a warm welcome that included refreshments. Very nicely kept grounds and large attractive lobby. Room was large enough with two queen size beds; bathroom a tad small but adequate with good shower and adequate toiletries. The hotel would have qualified for a 'very good' rating...

In 4 stars hotel, patrons arrive to a room with a full roll of toilette paper. Not there, and even worth it was not even replaced when the room was done in the morning so we arive in a room without toilet paper. Bathroom is very small and has no room for toilet bag. Shower is a dribble. Rooms have...

Initially I was assigned a room on the street side which had a frightening level of noise as the windows shut badly and there were creaks multiple centimers wide. After asking reception for a new room they gave me a room on the inside (garden side) of the hotel, which was quiet enough with good beds and strong Wifi.

The rooms are big, but there were very cold during the night.But there are enough blankets to keep you warm. Sleep quality was very good, a quiet place. Breakfast was good, many...

I experienced most things that others have commented (free wifi, good rooms, reasonable location with good services close, good laundry facilities, pay for TV remote). It was probably the noisiest location I have stayed in while here in Mexico though and we won't be sorry to leave. One further note is that most of the electrically plugs are only two...

After a long trip in Mexico, 16 days and 10 hotels, I can say that this is a 1 star hotel, even if it pretends 4. Uncleaned, the restaurant is dark and event the fruits are bad (difficult, in Mexico !!), in your bed there are very old sheets that you can see trough. You have to pay if you...
