My friend and I spent two nights here, before my timeshare week began in the hotel zone.The night manager was very nice and friendly, as was Betsy during the day. The courtyard on the main level was very pretty. Unfortunately, our room was barely tolerable. First of all, it was very small and cramped. A kitchen table that was way too big, was crammed into a tiny kitchen area, that you could hardly get around, let alone sit at it. The sink was full of dishes, which the manager thought were clean. The grease filter over the mini stove was filthy. Beds themselves were fine with clean sheets, but threadbare, old bedspreads. The coffee table was missing a quarter panel of glass, and the room smelled like mildew. There was a very tiny balcony, and if you looked to the left, you could see down to the beach. Unfortunately, the outdoor walls were covered with mold, and there was dirt and electric wires on the privacy sides. I admit we did not complain, as we had just traveled for 12 hrs, were exhausted, and didn't know where else to go, as it was late. We just tolerated it for two nights. Also, earlier reviews stated that there was no problem getting a late check out, so I asked on line (before I saw the room) about staying a few extra hours on Saturday, until check in time at the condo. First I was told that it would cost $600 pesos, and a future email, stated it was $700. (for 2 hrs). Needless to say, we checked out as early as possible on Saturday, and fortunately could get right into our place at Los Tules. I don't mind a simple, budget hotel, but cleanliness is essential. i won't return.
