I am trying to decide between these two hotels for a trip in December. We would be spending 3 nights and it looks like the cost will be pretty similar for the two when you account for transportation (included in La Paloma's rate). We want to see lots of wildlife, and would love to be able to see the whales that migrate through (I've read this starts in December). Has anyone stayed at both and can give us a reason to pick one over the other? Is there anything that we need to know that could help influence our decision that isn't apparent from the hotel websites?
