The reviews for this hotel looked great so I booked it for 5 nights and paid the required deposit. About 4 days before our trip, the hotel contacted me and said they were closed due to legal reasons. They told me I could stay at their other property which was quite far from SJDS. I was able to get last minute reservationsat at another hotel in SJDS instead so I asked Aventura for a refund. Although it did end up finally going through, it took quite a few emails to get the deposit back. At one point I was getting ready to dispute the charge through Paypal or through my credit card when I didn't hear from the hotel for a period of 10 days.
I was glad we ended up at another hotel because once I got to SJDS I found that the hotel was much further from SJDS than the website made it look.
