We just returned from a week at the hotel and couldn't have been happier with our visit. In fact, there was a problem at first, in that we were staying in a large cottage on the beach away from the hotel property (but rented by the hotel) called the Sol y mar. The cottage itself was amazing but for us the music from the nearby hostel was too loud as were the neighbors behind us. We told Rosy, and she took care of us immediately and settled us into a perfect two-bedroom apartment on the hotel property. We loved it. There was some street noise but the AC took care of that. We loved lounging in the hammocks on the porch. I had to get some writing done on the vacation and fact is I got more work done on the apartment porch than I would normally here in the same amount of town That's how nice it was. We loved the hotel's beautiful beach area. My wife barely left the hammock under the palapa near the water. The water was cool but once we got in, it was fine. We loved the town (and got to see Santa arrive on a golf cart) and the friendly and delicious restaurants but also enjoyed the occasional continental breakfast at the hotel. The hotel also has three kayaks. Take them out for a ride at sunset.
Rosy went out of her way to be accommodating. She arranged the taxi trips, sometimes before we even asked! Could the showers have more pressure? Yeah, maybe. Would I have preferred not the initial hassle, yeah, but in the end, we were much happier being around the hotel property than we would have been had we stayed the entire time in the sol y mar. The grounds are gorgeous and the people we met were universally pleasant as was the help. This was the first vacation we've taken in years where the intent was just to rest and relax, and we got exactly what we wanted, thanks to Rosy and this terrific hotel.
