We stayed for 7 nights last week and had a very positive experience at this hotel. The concierge staff were all extremely friendly and helpful! We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and it was perfect for 2 kids 2 adults (kids slept on pull out sofa). The kitchen is well stocked and the hotel accommodates requests such as providing a toaster which is helpful with providing kids quick snacks/ breakfasts. The air conditioner in the bedroom was very loud with constant knocking noises, which was an issue a couple of nights in terms of preventing sleep. If you are a sound sleeper this shouldn't be an issue.
The pool area is nice and the water is much warmer than the ocean so great for kids and adults who like to swim. It's a 10 minute walk to the beach (or quicker without slow kids) and the beach is amazing! The water is cold but that was expected.
Miguel's Cocina (mexican food restaurant) which is adjacent to the hotel has amazing food and drinks! They also allow you to bring drinks into the pool and courtyard areas of the hotel in plastic cups (just make sure you get there before 8:30 pm as the restaurant closes at 9).
Overall, this is a lovely hotel full of character, great staff, and beautiful well kept grounds. We were very pleased with this choice.
