DH and I spent five nights in February in room 120 on the first floor, rear of building in a largish room with two beds. Pluses for this were easy access to everything including the sitting area with water dispenser, short cut to Hidalgo and quick hallway hike to the front desk and WiFi. The much-vilified shower stall window in the bathroom puzzles me because you only see shoulders up. Didn't bother us a jot. Our mini fridge had a disconcerting rust stripe down the front and we, too, had to find by trial and error (and the guy with the remote) a room temp we liked: 23 was perfect. Peeps do play the stupid towel game but we can out-rise most folks and we had breakfasted and changed into swim gear before 8 so found our spot under an umbrella most days, vacating around noon each day. Except for one yobo who (briefly!) thought the world wanted to listen to his country music poolside, the time next to the pool was serene. The gardens are very pretty and an older gentle man gardener made every day pleasant with his greeting and smile. Loved Jorge at the desk---so positive and full of great advice!
Since returning home, my DH has commented at least three times how our initial response to PDM was a little negative, but we quickly grew to like it very much.
PDM will not suit you if you are a control freak who wants to boast about your accommodations. It will suit you if you know how to kick back, relax and realize that anything is the sum of all its parts. We will return!
