good hotel
DIONNE K.
Jan 07 2017
I would give this hotel 3.5 stars. Food was average on the whole although new years eve special dinner and mexican firsta dinner was very good, as well as the a la carte italian restaurant. You need reservations if you want to eat at surf and turf and it was full while we were there. The pool was crowded during the day but kept clean and in good care. The beach was average but ok for swimming- free kayaks were fun also. A bit crowded because was on a public beach and smoking was permitted which on the beach which I didn't care for. The tennis courts were nice ( 2 clay courts and 4 indoor courts. I took tennis lessons each day which were good. Staff was very helpful and very nice. Good service. The rooms were clean and well kept. The hotel is in a good location close to town. Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and it was a good experience.

Canto del Sol is a small resort with a very small beach. If you are going to enjoy a beach, this is not the hotel for you. In addition, the water at the beach is very dirty and filled with trash so swimming is not a pleasant experience. There are two pools, and they are also very crowded. The employees at the snack bars and bars around the pool are excellent. They work hard to get drinks for everyone and wait on you at the beach, bringing food and drinks. The rooms are nice but simple, no refrigerators, but kept very clean by the staff. The restaurants are nice and it was easy to get a reservations. The food at the buffets was good, and there was no never a line to get in. The location is really great, close to town, and also close to shopping.

They constantly try to sell you time shares and adventure trips. We had ants all over the kitchen, even though our room was "one if the best". The master ceiling was dripping water. Their solution was to move the bed to a different wall.

Our room in the hotel was dated and not very nice. The bed was very firm and we had a difficult time getting a pad to try to make it softer. What Canto Del Sol lacks in up to date facilities, it makes up in excellent service. I was very impressed with the staff energy and service. We spent a lot of time by the swimming pool and the employees were quick to bring drinks. Dinners were great too, staff here are very motivated and fun.

We were looking for a totally relaxing vacation in the sun and this was it. The hotel rooms and sahred areas were kept sop clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The small hotel was right on the beach, where we sat under umbrellas and read.

When you walk in they are right on top of you to check you in so you can go and enjoy your time. Everyone is so nice and helpful and when we had a problem they asked no questions and did what had to be done to make us happy. Will be going back again next year.

this was the best vacation we ever had together. The hotel was exceptional, food excellente, service beyond compare and the staff extremely friendly. The accident that occurred at the end was the only bad spot and did not involve the hotel at all.

Best in PVR

These people bent over backwards to do anything to please us. The attitude of all of the travelers reflected this fact. The quality of the food shocked me at every single meal. Pool area perfect. Tennis lessons were outstanding. Rooms excellent and cool. I managed a Carlson Travel agency and I have run two multi-million dollar kitchens and this was my very best Mexico Hotel experience including PVR, SJO, MZT and CUN. The staff is just outstanding. The Prime Rib melted in your mouth. I can't go back soon enough.

This was my 2nd visit to the Canto del sol, but although the staff still work very hard, the cleanliness is excellent, the food and drink are still very good, there were things I didn’t like. They have locals coming in at the weekends, but this starts on Thursday, gradually increasing and finishes on Monday. It makes the hotel very busy, and the bar and pool get crowded. As with all guests, some are loud and rowdy. Just before we left on the 3rd of November, it was really busy, people couldn’t get sun beds, although if you got up early enough you were ok. Also, the animation team tend to cater for them and younger people more, on an afternoon sometimes the music was very loud and awful. Then it sometimes continued in the bar, so you couldn’t hear yourself speak. It was nasty dance music, and as we tried to point out on a couple of occasions, there were other older guests, not just young Mexicans. Nobody seemed to like telling anyone off, people smoked in non smoking areas, a couple of kids were running round the tables in the open air restaurant area. A general lack of discipline. Small things you might think, but enough to put me off returning. The music was the worst, I hated it and we asked for it turning down or changing a few times. That said, it is a lovely hotel and if they could address a few things it could be perfect.

Canto Del Sol was such a lovely boutique resort! Jorge but the pool was so friendly and efficient!! What a genuine guy! He was a hustler, we never waited for a drink! The a la cart restaurants were fantastic! Mahi topped with shrimp was delicious! David took good care of us! The surf and turf restaurant was to die for! Beautiful filet with grilled shrimp and accompaniments! The Italian was equally as tasty! The servers we had were all wonderful and funny too! Robert, Oscar, julio Cesar, and Antonio the # 1 server he called himself! Well done guys! Rooms were cleaned nicely! Thru RCI we don’t get a newly remodeled room was my only disappointment!! Loved being on the fourth floor tho. Nice ocean views!! Definitely recommended and will be returning!!

So friendly and clean

My wife and I spent a fortnight in August 2018 and we really enjoyed every minute of it. The real asset were the staff, who could not have been more helpful or polite. The room/pool side were impeccably clean. We had the most wonderful experience of Mexico - we travelled on the buses from just outside the hotel (less than 50p only singles) to the Malecon. You have to go to the beautiful botanical gardens or catch the boat from the Malecon to Yelapa. Just a fantastic holiday and thank you to the staff of the Canto - miss you all!
