    Beautiful Hotel, I would stay there again. My complaint is that the hotel caters to Italians playing only their music, I was looking for dancing for all people. Dancing in the lobby was completely for Italians only and even letting them get up and sing. Hope this will change. As I really loved the hotel and would love to stay there again. Hopefully next time all restaurants will be opened and also the bar hours are extended until after 11p.m.

    Hotel is clean and beautiful and can't wait to go back. Rooms and hotel staff were excellent.

    It was a long weekend in Mexico and they only had two out of five elevators working. Sometimes had to wait 10 to 15 minutes for an elevator.

    The staff were pleasant and keen to help.

    The condition of the hotel was not of a 4* quality. I had a dirty bath where there was hair when got there and the sink was rusting. The bed valence was dirty and it was dusty under the bed. Not to my expectation. I felt more effort could have been done to make the stay more welcoming. Also the taxi who are sponsored by the Hotels are con. I had one driver who insisted on taking me on a tour, perhaps I was taken in by the driver named Armando. 200 pesos he said it would cost then it turns out that it was per hour. He did not state that, just be careful and not to be fooled by them.

    It was a nice room. The area is perfect right on the beach.

    When we arrived the room was not cleaned up. Had to wait for it to be ready. The TV channels were very few.

    The Oceanview was stunning, The rooms were very comfortable and spacious, One of the few hotels in Mexico that has provides Iron and Ironing board, mini fridge and coffee maker. very close to shopping malls, restaurants and grocery stores. The bell boys and parking stuff were very friendly and helpful even though it was crazy busy.

    Too many children on the pool, They didn't have enough stuff for how busy it gets during the summer vacation, so our room was cleaned in a hurry, they forgot to replaced the coffee and coffee mugs, they took our remote and didn't send it back when we asked for it and we didn't have hand towels. They gave us a very low exchange rate so we ended paying a lot more for our room than we expected.

    Nice big rooms, all with ocean views

    Reception always busy, have to wait ages to speak to someone, but a small complaint!

    Staff were friendly and accommodating. Room had good view. Room service was fast.

    Found a dead cockroach almost immediately upon checking in. Staff apologized and sent someone to clean the room, but otherwise did nothing...not offering me free breakfast or any other offset. AC didn't work so great, so it ran warm in the room. The cleaning crew were hit or miss, one day leaving a bath mat, for instance, and the next day forgetting it. Overall, the furnishings and the bathroom fixtures were a little shabby. Slow drain on the sink, for instance. Shower didn't work very well. Elevators were slow and infrequent, a real irritant. When they finally did arrive, they were often so jam-packed with people that you had to wait for the next elevator. Sometimes, I waited six or seven minutes. That is a bit too much. Found, to my surprise, that simply sitting on a chaise lounge under a tent on the beach would run me an extra 150 pesos a day, a true rip-off, considering how much I was already spending on the room, parking, etc. Maybe the hotel has no claims on the beach directly in front of it, so perhaps there is nothing to do about it, but to me it seemed like legalized robbery. Finally, I thought the pools were a little underwhelming. Small, shallow, and overcrowded.

    I really liked the location of the hotel! just next to the market, to the VIP Cinepolis, many cafes and restaurantes for decent prices! It's not Diamante, but it's completely safe (asked locals many times about the crime risk and they told us that it's dangerous just in the mountain part).

    needs just a little bit of renovation, though it was very neat and clean

    The view

    It is a hotel that is completely without charm, it's lacks authenticity. You could be anywhere in the world.

    we had a fabulous view from the 22nd floor. Couldn`t stop taking photos. Sunset incredible. We stopped off at this hotel for one night on our way from Ixtapa to Hualtaco *driving...yes was quite the trip...and we are booking in on our way back as well as we were very happy there.

    The location is great. In the cosetera area close to everything.

    The beds were very small and uncomfortable. The shower curtains were dirty. There was nothing to sit on the porches. The pools were small and one looked way over clorinated.
