This was our fourth trip to this resort. It is now back under the original ownership & we see improvements already.Staff are always friendly & obliging . This is truly a Mexican oriented place. Lots of Spanish spoken, because most of the tourists are Mexican families. Tons of fresh fruit, excellent omelette grill & huge variety of breakfast choices. Salads ,chicken ,fish, pork or beef , plus traditional Mexican dishes at lunch. Evening meals at the buffet were often outdoors & mostly traditional Mexican food...great desserts! The 3 a la cartes always presented varied & delicious menus. If you are complaining about the food....you are VERY fussy. The entertainment committee work very hard at keeping everyone as busy as you wish to be. True...the beds are hard, but if one reads the reviews, you know that before you go. This resort is very isolated, but has no venders bothering you & there are trips into more populated areas. The beach is clean & stretches on , allowing for a nice long walk. The view of the bay is great...we saw whales & dolphins. There were a number of days in which baby turtles were released in the evening....a real treat. There is a doctor on site, should the need arise. Bring bug spray for any mosquitoes or sand fleas. I do not believe that drinks are watered down...if they are....why did I notice so many drunk Canadians? Most folks enjoyed a good variety of drinks.. WiFi service was improved since last year. The pool is heated, which is a real plus compared to resorts in the Caribbean.
We spent 5 weeks at this resort & plan on spending another 5 weeks there next year.
Great 2 week Vacation!!

We just returned on Friday Feb 7 2014 after 2 weeks at Los Angeles Locos and had a wonderful time. I do not understand the negative reviews...but some people are harder to please. Yes the resort is showing it's age and could use some more upgrading. They replaced a tile roof while we were there so they are working on things. The beach and the ocean were amazing, we swam in it every day, saw lots of fish, went kayaking, released baby sea turtles and watched dolphins swim in the bay. The grounds and pool are beautiful and well maintained and the staff works very hard to keep it that way. The rooms are large (even the standard ones) but I do agree that the beds are uncomfortable. We got extra blankets and put them under the sheet for more padding and this seemed to help. The mangrove tour and horseback riding were great extra's at no cost. The staff was excellent and even got to know us by name and many spoke English. Communication was not a problem anywhere at the resort. It was quiet during the week but got busier on the weekend with the locals coming for R&R but we always found a lounger to lie on in the sun. The food in the buffet varied every day but there was always lots to choose from including different fruits and great omelets made by Cici every morning. We ate at all the a la cartes at least twice and the food was excellent and plentiful. The pizza in the Italian one was great for lunch as well. My husband went fishing twice and the chef cooked up one of the mahi mahi's he caught for us for supper and it was the best meal we had. This resort is out of the way and there are no beach vendors, but that is what we were after...a nice relaxing vacation. We did a tour to Melaque and Barre de Navidad by van and took a water taxi to Barre de Navidad to the market. We saw 3 whales within 100 feet of the panga we were in and it was amazing to see them playing and surfacing. The animation team works hard to keep you entertained during the day and yes the night shows are a little cheesy...it is not Vegas!! Many guests are repeat visitors staying more than 2 weeks at a time. We will definitely keep this resort in mind if we return to the area
One of the best body surfing beaches I have ever seen

I went to 'Crazy Angels' several years ago with a buddy only to discover when we arrived that the resort was less than 20% occupied that week. The good news was that our large bus full of Canadians were all relatively of the same age, very outgoing, and we ended up making it a great experience for all. Before you book a trip though, you may want to find out what the occupancy is going to be during your stay.
The resort is remote, so expect not to make a lot of excursions outside of the bay. On the good side, the resort is pretty compact, so there was not a lot of long walks required to get from your room to a restaurant or disco.
Overall, the resort was a bit tired, the food was OK. We got a great deal on our trip, so I thought it was decent value. At full price, I would have been more demanding/disappointed.
There were 2 nice surprises:
1) The surf. The horseshoe shaped bay creates some very nice body surfing waves - nice slow curls with some waves getting to 4-5 feet. We were body surfing every afternoon, and eventually had almost every male on our bus out there joining in the fun.
2) The shrimp hut about a 15 minute beach walk north of the resort - right on the beach. Even though we were at an all inclusive, it was a nice change of pace. The shrimp hut is exactly that, just a big wide open thatched roof hut, but the fresh grilled shrimp were amazing, and I think we were paying $2 for an ice-cold bottle of Dos Equis.
Remote and in need of repair

We just returned from a 2 week stay, and I have some pros and cons:
Pros: The beach is amazing - some of the finest sand we've ever experienced! It's long and great for walking. We didn't swim in the ocean much, as there were a ton of fish & rays in the water. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the place, as there are no vendors on the beach (or anything else) for miles. The tropical jungle setting is lovely.
The staff was great - very friendly and the hotel and grounds were clean. Maria at the front desk is a charm and Ceci makes a great omelette! :)
The International Restaurant was fabulous, and the tortilla soup in the Mexican Restaurant was some of the best we've ever had.
Cons: There is nothing for miles. If you don't have a rental car, you'll have to hire a taxi or pay for a water taxi to go anywhere. The road surrounding is cobblestone, so if you like to walk, it has to be on the beach.
We've stayed at quite a few all-inclusives and have always been able to find something decent to eat, but they really do cater to the locals with the Mexican dishes, and the salad and fruit selection in the salad bar was very minimal (no berries at all, and bananas only 1 day).
There is a store where you can buy water every day, but after 2 weeks, it gets costly.
We personally didn't have any issues with critters on the 2nd floor, but the the rest of our group had cockroaches issues.
They need to find away to keep the birds off the overhangs, as the morning bombing of faeces leaves a lot to be desired.
As typical for Mexico, the beds are hard and uncomfortable, as well as old.
Also, there were a lot of bugs...a ton of people had bites on their ankles and up their legs.
As I understand, this hotel has recently been sold and the new owners have their work cut out for them...it is run down, in need of a lot of repairs and some quality changes.
if you are not picky and like a very remote location ......
