This hotel has significant problems for Canadian holidayers. Most of the staff have little or no English, and the food this year seemed to all be cooked to Mexican taste (spicy sauces), and it was not very good, over cooked or undercooked, and they're using some kind of potato that stays hard as a rock no matter how long you cook it. They also ran out of bacon three different mornings at breakfast, and the "scrambled" eggs are sort of a chopped up omelette.
I know they have renovated some of the bathrooms, but those which are unrenovated are pretty ugly. Bathtubs chipped and peeling, sinks stained, grout and caulking a total mess. The place is clean, it will just never look clean until these things are fixed.
HOWEVER, if you can overlook those problems, it's a great place to stay. Most of the staff is friendly and willing to be helpful - if they can figure out what you are asking. They often pretend (or maybe even think) they understand what you are asking, which can lead to some pretty aggravating or hilarious results. The rooms are generally spacious and have very large balconies for sitting outside. The views are unparalelled. The two pools means that the games and more loud activities can be carried out at the beach pool while the 7th floor pool is for a more quiet bunch generally. Several good restaurants within walking distance and its quite safe to walk, even after dark. 38 pesos gets you a cab ride into either Sta Cruz or La Crucecita where there are more restaurants and lots of shopping. Just try not to go on days the cruise ships dock or you pay more. There are also many interesting places nearby for trips and tours.
This was my third time there and I think I would go back, depending on the food situation, as it has deteriorated since my first visit to the point that it was either go out to eat or starve most nights. Steam tables and buffets take a specal kind of cooking talent that is totally absent there right now.
