El Mirasol, although a multi room hotel/resort, is more like a gay bed and breakfast! The owners (Paul and Bruce) manage to keep the personal touch/homey environment that you find in a small bed and breakfast, but allow you to enjoy the benefits of a secluded spread out resort! Great location right in the heart of the warm sands festivities without all the heavy traffic if you know what I mean. Very safe and secluded. Great parking, easy check in, super clean resort and rooms, well lit, beautiful landscaping, soft music, two pools, secluded hot tub and steam room, plenty of places to sit and visit outside and there is even a "living room" with a nice continental breakfast and 24 hour ice and soda fountain-including cranberry juice - great for mixing cocktails by the pool. They even provide large tumbler glasses for you to do so. The rooms were a bit outdated-as are most of the warm sands gay hotels-but the ac worked well and the room was nicely furnished. I really like the extra vanity and walk in shower. My friend and I each had a pool side room which was towards the back and the location was great! Steps from one of the pools. The rest of the resort villas look very nice and I am looking forward to staying in one. The owners/hosts are very hospitable and greatly enjoy their job. It is obvious! Overall, we were very impressed and will definitely return! It is not a modern hotel, but it is very peaceful and relaxing-just like a small bed and breakfast!!
