This is a mixed review of the Condhotel, also known as Progreso Beach Hotel. I had booked us in for only one night, and it was good enough that we stayed for 4 more, mostly because it was pretty quiet and the location is great. The room was plenty big, was clean, the beds were comfortable enough and the shower was hot. The patio and pool area are nice and there were few other travelers there at the time. We also liked having a refrigerator in the room. We could not get wi-fi service in the room, which may be because we were in a lower back corner, but a few steps out onto the patio and the reception was fine.
There was on-street parking or a lot behind the hotel, so we had no problem with that at all.
Now the bad or unique parts: I was surprised that we had no maid service AT ALL for the whole stay. If we wanted the trash baskets emptied, we did it ourselves. If we needed clean towels, we had to ask for them at the desk and they seemed rather surprised. I might be able to understand it better if we had only stayed 2 nights, but we didn't. We were there for a while.
The desk clerks speak almost no English, so communication with my poor Spanish was a bit of a problem. However, we were able to get past it.
The coffee, which was apparently instant, was pretty expensive; 45 pesos a cup, which equates to over $3 US per cup. Refills are the same price. It's only possible to get a burger and fries at the little bar, but they don't stint on the serving.
We only had one noisy night, when a busload of tourists came in from Mexico City, and then it was awful. It sounded like they were having a party, laughing, dancing and moving furniture overhead until nearly 4:00 in the morning. Sleep was impossible.
Would we go back and stay there again? Probably so, if we wanted an acceptable place to crash and didn't want to spend a lot of time looking around for one, but I think I'd ask them if they are expecting a tour bus during our stay.
