We loved staying here, the pool/hot tub area is great with fun lighting at night. The Reef restaurant that is attached to the pool area is a fun place with great food. I had the coconut shrimp & it was amazing.

I didn’t expect luxury here but c’mon. There are cracks in the painted cement floor, the wallpaper is peeling, the faucet is about to break off from the sink, and the towel holder literally fell off the wall onto the floor. I asked for another room but the entire place is sold out. That’s another thing, if you’re looking for any social distancing at the pool, it’s not happening. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere.

Wasn't expecting anything great for $100 a night... However, stayed 2 nights, place was very clean, staff friendly, great location- so close to everything. Had a couple drinks at the bar- fine, pool was nice and heated. I have no complaints. Would stay here again. Yes, its an older property that could use some renovation, but for what you pay it is a bargain.

I was looking forward to staying at this retro tiki hotel, as I had driven past it many times. I finally booked a night and was so horrified, I didn’t even stay overnight. I left and drove two hours home to avoid it. The rooms was awful. Dirty, old carpet... horrible mattress, musty smell and popcorn ceilings. I felt like I was given the worst possible room. Also did not feel safe, as a solo female traveler. Shady people staring. Tried to make the most of it by getting a drink at The Reef Bar, but their computer system was down. Could not get out of there fast enough.

We booked a Hotwire rate and this is the hotel we received. It really is an average hotel: not the worst, but nothing to write home about either. The room was comfortable but worn. There were chipped areas and our fridge didn’t really work. As others have highlighted, there is no microwave. There is hot water though. Spatially, there is room for improvement including expanding the toilet and shower room and including a second sink. I recommend staying on the second floor so you have nobody above you. We heard our upstairs neighbor often which I found interesting considering the floor is cement. The pool is nice and kept clean, but wished they warmed it. The jacuzzi is closed until further notice. There’s plenty of space to social distance and the mountains make for a picturesque background. Downtown is about a 7-minute drive, but there are a few restaurants in walking distance including Mirasol, Elmer’s and Koffi. The staff we encountered were friendly. Rudy checked me in and he was very pleasant. We definitely received our money’s worth, but I’m not in a rush to return.
