We booked this hotel for the price and the good reviews and was so glad we did.
The reception staff were friendly, helpful and gave the hotel a nice homely feel to it as they actually live on site. Although basic, the rooms have everything you need from ensuite to cable TV, we were shown an upgraded room with a kitchenette but as we were on holiday and not backpacking we decided to stick with what we had. The garden and roof terrace area were so nice to sit and have a beer before heading out to the craziness of the main strip.
The location is in a safe and quiet residential area which fantastic for couples or those wanting to see a bit more of La Playa than 5 Ave. One nice touch is that you can buy big 20L water bottles from reception for 45 pesos, this lasted us a week. Also the excursions booked through the hotel were good too and the owner came to our room to recommendwe go to a local concert in the main sqaure where we heard some lovely classical music and saw some local artists.
I would definitely recommend this hotel...brilliant!
