    Nice Infrastructure Nice View

    Located close to the Tambor airport, make this hotel easy to reach, unfortunately the hotel do not have a pick-up service, so you need to talk with the people outside of the airport to find transportation to the hotel, the distance is short but the rate always is 6 dls, when you reach the hotel, you will see the gardens and infrastructure is well maintain, depending of the time that you arrive, you can be on the line for long time waiting to make the check-in, the rooms are comfortable, good bed, you will have a good resting, we stayed in a room with ocean view, the location was great, easy to access the beach and far from the noise of the discotheque, the rooms are clean mostly only what you can see, nothing in deep, we found an old plastic bottle under the bed, that is a clear message the cleaning is not in deep. The overall service is good, some places are short of personal, and makes you to line for long periods waiting for being attended, narrowing down the places, during the day you have the Palenque is a snack bar, the chef who prepare the Hamburgers and hot dogs, is quite nice, and the rest of the personal is helpful. By other hand the bar on the pool is impossible, most of the people sits there when the bar opens till almost night, that makes impossible for the rest of the clients to visit it, also all the place around the bar you will see a lot of drunk people, that makes the rest of the customer uncomfortable, mostly because there are many children's around. The beach is nice, but definitely I recommend to visit the hotel in low season, you will have the beach for you, and try to visit it during the morning when the tide is low, otherwise will be dangerous because when the tide is high the level reach the highest level of the sand and this is all rocks. The main restaurant El Tucan is completely open, and sometimes are too many fly around you,
