My husband and I stayed in January 2008. We also pre booked by sending a night's deposit thru Western Union. No problems at all. We were glad we did because there were several nights that the hotel was booked up during our 10 night stay.
The hotel was in a great location. Right in the middle of town. We easily walked there from the ferry dock with our rolling suitcases. If you ask for room 14 on the top floor, you can look out from the balcony and see both sides of the island! Shops and restaurants all around. Laundromat on the corner.The grocery store was a 5 minute walk. Internet store right next door run by a wonderful English speaking lady.
Our room was basic but very clean. The bed was very comfortable-unusual for Mexico. In fact, we had brought a bed pad to use but never put it on the bed.
If you are planning on staying a few days, I would suggest bringing your own beach towels, soap, shampoo, roll of toilet paper, corkscrew/bottle opener, and travel clock.
It was nice to have a TV, although only a few stations were in English. There was also a safe in the room. We locked up our phones, passports, etc. during the day.
Being right in the middle of town, you could hear street noise as stated by othere guests. We ended up buying a box fan at the grocery store and slept great every night after that.
All in all it was a great place-clean, great location, and very affordable. We are planning on going back next year.
