“I love this place”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

This was my third time staying at this hotel, what can I say? I keep coming back, the hotel is clean, the staff are friendly although this last time one person at the front desk was very uncooperative but every time he said no "I don't want to help" the other staff made it happened perhaps he was having a bad week but I can't give less than five starts because of him, anyway I hope to be back at this place in 4 months.

They don't have fitness center but they will give you a coupon to one of the local gyms

Room Tip: I saw a lot of people trying to get a room at the front desk, buddy don't do that go online and...

Great hotel - especially for the price. The front desk staff members were all very helpful. The housekeeping staff was meticulous. We enjoyed our room on the 2nd floor - 206. We had a good sized room with king bed, mini-bar, TV, nice patio looking out over lush gardens surrounding the lovely pool. No problems with noise at night. Short walk to the beach - we enjoyed Zenzi Beach Club. We enjoyed the breakfast that was included. Lots of great restaurant options nearby. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Room 206 was good - king bed - small outdoor patio overlooking the lush pool area.

nice hotel. close to 5th avenue and the center of playa. we stayed there for 5 days overall and switched rooms. the lower rooms are new and nice, the upper rooms are less nice and not good in isolating noise. one night at a room in the second fioor I woke up for the noise of water running through the pipes at the wall as a guy in the next room took a shower at 5:00 a.m. I could'nt go back to sleep untill he finished because the nise was terrible! other from that, a good hotel with good service and good breakfast, alltough I didn't like the idea of having to pay extra for another basket of bread

Room Tip: take the rooms at the ground foor- 101-104. they are bigger, nicer and newer

Nice staying, but expected more about the room, specially the shower and the tv. I also found the water was salty, which was the wost thing about the hotel. Anyway, the restaurant is good, so is the pool. The location is perfect and the staff was also nice.

Very nice accommodations that are close to the beach, right around the corner from La Quinta and close to several clubs in the area. Would highly recommend a stay here, the staff was fun and helpful, while the service was very good.
