We found this wonderful hotel about 5 years ago and have been staying there ever since. From the first day Gabriel (the owner-manager) has made us feel like we are at home. The hotel is very clean and modern with safes, air conditioning,and fridges.Everything you need to make your stay one to remember. There is several different styles of rooms, we have been staying in one of the suites with a small kitchen and a large fridge. Gabriel goes out of his way everyday to ensure that everything is right for you. He also has been known to help you celebrate your birthdays and other special occasions, or out of the blue has shown up with a tub of ice and beer, and guacamole.
The location is great as everything is quite close. The beach is 3 blocks, the markets and econo loncheros are only a couple of blocks. The grocery store is a block and half, the liquor store is right around the corner, and the laundry is right on the corner. It is just one block over from Hidalgo (the street with the majority of bars and restaurants). So most everything is close, but yet it is quite quiet at night if you can get some sleep to rest up for the next day. The way hotel is designed it makes for a very social atmosphere. Most guests start gathering late afternoon after a day at the beach for some happy hour drinks and snacks. there is always lots of laughs and good fun.
The staff of the hotel is wonderful and has become like family to us. Angelica has been there for the last 4 years and keeps our room very clean and make sure that we always have clean towels. Often there is a little gift that her Children have made or a small token of friendship left in your room. Juan Carlos manages the hotel during the evenings and weekends, so there is always some staff around. Juan's esposa Nelly, used to work in the salon at the front of the Hotel, but an accident last year has left her unable to work for a while. Over the last few years we have had the pleasure of getting to know these people and their families on a personal level. We have been invited to their birthday party's and other family events. Coming back to this Hotel every year is like coming home. There is many of the Hotel guests return every year, and over the years we have all become good friends. This makes it like a reunion every year meeting up with our friends from Illinois, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, B.C., Ontario, and Minnesota. We can`t wait to return for another season this winter.
