“Nice Location for Walkers/Joggers”
Reviewed 5 February 2011

We spent two nights here in a standard room with king-sized bed. The room was a little small with no balcony. At the front desk they offered me a double queen room at the same rate whith they said was a better room, but I wanted the king bed. My sisters were in a double queen room nearby, and their room was bigger and had a balcony. One advantage our king room had over the other was that we had a full tub - a nice large size to lay down and soak, which came in handy when the weather was rather chilly.

The hotel is located just a couple blocks from the Malecon, and it was great to be able to go there for our morning walks. As a matter of fact, if the Ramada wasn't so terribly noisy at night I would be tempted to stay there more often just for the advantage of being so close to the Malecon. I will consider other motels along the Malecon in the future.

The noise I'm talking about was the music from Joe's Oyster Bar, and it has been mentioned in other reviews. It goes on until 3 in the morning or so. If you picture yourself partying that late, then the noise won't bother you. Otherwise, I would suggest bringing ear plugs. My husband used earplugs the second night, but I was so exhausted from the first sleepless night that I was able to sleep like a baby the second night.

We were fortunate to have booked at a special rate which included free breakfast, and I thought the breakfast buffet offered was very nice and exceeded my expectations. They had eggs cooked to order as well as fresh fruit, yogurt, assortment of sweet rolls, toast upon request, and a variety of Mexican goodies such as chilaquiles, refried beans and much, much more. There was something for everyone.

There are lots of great restaurants nearby, so be sure to check them out. We especially liked Panama for casual dining.

Reviewed 11 January 2011

Had an 8th floor two bedroom, two bathroom unit with ocean views from both bedrooms. There was a balcony, a living room area, dining area, and kitchen complete with a fridge, sink, microwave, electric frying pan and all the dish-ware/cookware needed to enjoy some meals at home. Then again, with several taquerias around the corner serving tacos for around a buck, why bother?

The place was gorgeous and very minimalist in terms of decoration. I personally really appreciated the fact that, from the travertine floors and bathrooms to every marble surface (right down to the nightstand and dining room table), the entire apartment could be scrubbed from top to bottom. Even the furniture used indoor/outdoor fabrics. The bedding was great with a sheeted comforter (my favorite since they can be changed between guests) and plenty of pillows. Housekeeping was great. They are paid nearly exclusively on tips and went out of their way to keep the apartment tidy; even washing dishes.

The pool and beach area were fantastic. I saw a negative review on another site and can't understand why someone was disappointed. The staff around the pool were polite and helpful and the small roped in area on the beach contained a dozen or so thatch umbrellas to relax in the shade and watch the beach scene go by. My only conclusion is that arrogant and rude people are treated poorly by hotel staff no matter where they go. Regardless, the beach faces Deer Island and a second pristine beach on the adjacent island is just a short kayak ride away. Simply beautiful.

The spa on site was great and less than half the price of the Pueblo Bonita timeshare property spas (i.e. the place the timeshare sales people harass you about incessantly as you walk around the golden zone). The restaurants and bars on site were great for when we didn't feel like walking down the block to buy a pastry, drinks and some fruit and the rooftop areas were great for watching sunsets and relaxing in the evenings.

The hotel itself is in an ideal location; right at the start of the Malacon connecting the golden zone and the historic city center and within an easy walk to restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping. Joe's Oyster Bar and the Bora Bora nightclub are both literally next door. You can hear the music at night but the A/C units in the bedrooms were more than sufficient to mask the noise in order to sleep. Overall, a perfect stay.
