I stayed at El Meson for business because I had to. I have stayed there before, but this was the worst stay of them all. Calling ahead, I double checked that there would be no parties or gringo sing-a-longs lasting past midnight (previous experience). I also inquired about the state and quality of the internet connection because in other stays it was intermittent at best. So I guess by now you can see where I am going with this review.
First night (Sunday) I check in, there is no internet. I could connect to the router, but the router couldn't get to the internet.
2nd night after work (Monday) the internet was off still not working. I alerted the front office and within a couple of minutes it was working, so good. I valet my car as there was no street parking after work. Also, management gifted me a bottle of wine for the inconvenience. I got it opened at the bar and wanted to have it with dinner at the restaurant in the hotel. I was then told I couldn't drink it in the restaurant. I explained to waiter that it was from management. He did not care, so I cancelled my order and left for street tacos.
3rd morning I go to collect my car. I expected someone to go get it and bring it up, but no, the manager sent an employee with me to go look for the car. Fun! 3rd night (a Tuesday!) I was woken up by a party in the hotel pool area. It was loud enough to wake me up with a closed window and the air con running. I called down to the front desk to request the group to quiet down. Nothing happened. The group dispersed at around 2:30 am and then I was able to get sleep.
If you decide to stay here, I warned you.
