Private room for 2. Great air-conditioning. Has all the basics although wifi is just in the lobby. Get to breakfast before 8:30 as they normally start packing up around then. Really close to the beach and surf shuttle.

Clean room, good air condition. Nice pool. However they nickel and dime you on everything. Bring a friend in to eat a sandwich poolside, that's $10. Bring another friend for a drink later in the evening another $10. The room already costs $55 and then all the hidden fees bump it up to $85 real quick..they promise breakfast at 7...

The hotel is clean and well maintained. I would recommend it to everyone especially families. I stayed with my family and we had a great time. The prices are very reasonable. The owner is kind and usually there. The location is very close to the beach and many restaurants.

We first went to one the taxi driver said was best and it was pretty run down. Next we looked at a couple friends told us about and those we full. We checked out Oceano...

My family and I stayed there for two nights in January. The staff at the hotel was nice and the hotel is clean. The rooms are small and basic. There was A/C and hot water, but our lamp wasn't working. Wifi was available but not in the rooms, which was disappointing. Also, they have a restaurant onsite but it wasn't...

There were three of us that made reservations at Gran Oceano for three nights in January. We arrived at the hotel at 5:00pm and were told that they gave one of our rooms away because they didn't know for sure that we were coming. I had an e-mail confirming our reservation but it did no good. They said that they...

“Second floor at the end of the hall - our room was double the size of my mom's who was on the first floor, and faced the pool, which offered a quiet setting and great breeze through the window.”

“Ask for a room close to the front of the hotel and the wifi might work. We could get it in our room (104) sometimes, but by just going into the hall, the signal was strong.”
