    Improve your food please

    Again, great little place. We wouldn't go back nor tell anyone else to go there. The food was a 2 out of 10 at best because of multiple reasons, temperature, types of food, lack of basic foods that one would have at Dinner, lunch or Breakfast.

    beautiful authentic location

    We stayed at the hotel over New Years. We've stayed at many resorts in Mexico, and was looking for a quieter more authentic location where we could not feel too touristy. Apart from the vendors on the beach, we felt immersed into the locals life with their beach area with a variety of restaurants (although we didn't try any). We walked across the street to the town of Mismaloya (very quaint) We took an amazing excursion with PaddleZone which is a 3 min beachwalk from hotel. As for the hotel itself, we did not have a good first impression as we were not greeted upon arrival by anyone, and the front desk staff were not very friendly. But after that, we went to our foom on the 6th floor in building 2. Room was clean and we were impressed with the room size with the separate bedroom and bathroom for the kids. The buffet was great. Our favorite was the Oriental night. The service in the buffet was always amazing and we were never short of coffee, drinks, utensils..anything we requested. We would like to thank Oscar Martinez and Alexis Quinteo for welcoming us every morning. They really care about getting to know their guests and making sure they are happy. Thank you Oscar and Alexis! We tried the A la carte restaurants and enjoyed them all. The entertainment team were having their own fun and not really caring about the guests. They were never there when anyone was looking for volleyballs or ping pong bats/balls. The music was very often too loud when there wasn't any event going on. The pool deck needs a good cleaning. Maybe they do that after the holiday crowds. Overall we loved our stay. Would recommend this hotel for its location. Don't expect the same standards as the Barcelo in the Mayan. Also, pack bug spray!
