We have stayed at this hotel a few times over the years. A good friend discovered it 12 years ago and has stayed here since. There have been lots of improvements over the years to the pool areas. There are 2, one has a water slide for the kids, and the infinity pool is overlooking the ocean. It has a fountain area that is supper shallow to allow little tykes to splash and play, divided from the adult pool. Over a few yards under the palm trees is also a jetted small pool that is very popular. They have nice bathrooms by this pool so one doesn't have to run all the way back to ones room. The rooms are cleaned daily and the property is very well maintained, esp the pools.
We stayed in a room overlooking the ocean/pool. You book a bedroom unit with bathroom off the main kitchen/living room area. There are 3 bedrooms to a unit. There is also an outside sitting area for each unit. On site they have a small convenience store, good to buy drinking water, ice cream and coronas. You can rent a peddle bike here as well.
It is a 10 minute walk to downtown Bucerias. Lots of restaurants to check out along the way. One bar called the Bikers Bar had just opened just past Yo Yo Ma's. Cold cheap beer here.
The rooms at Los picos are getting a bit shabby and need some updating.The fridges can be missing the plastic door condiment holders so you get less space for food storage.For the past few years they have been increasing their prices, so has now become less of a deal to stay here. If you get ocean front the views are spectacular, but it is now worth looking at some of the other hotels for the same view. (Ten days for 2 cost $950.00 american /ocean front room)
Easy access to the beach. Showers on access area. Be careful in ocean late March due to sting rays coming in to the bay to mate. They lay in sand and a few people have had stingers stuck into their foot or ankle. Not nice. We wore our teva sandals swimming and did the shuffle walk to make any rays swim away.
Hope this info helps.
