We first visited this resort in 1999, returned a few years later and again this year. Yes, as others have said, it is a little tired in places. However, as on previous visits the staff made our stay very special as they are helpful and friendly. Our room had been recently refurbished and was spacious, clean and had wonderful sea...

I adore this place!! I am a repeat visitor to this resort, which I find to be economical, clean and comfortable. My last stay was in August 2016, a busy time for the resort, my one tiny observation was that maintenance of the gorgeous pool was a bit lacking, as it became disturbingly cloudy after a couple days during our...

Rooms outdated, the entire resort felt like the 80's. It's too outdated, overpriced, spam sandwiches for snack was horrible. Under staffed. Pool was dirty. We left and went to Magdalena which was superb. Please don't waste your time and money here. It's not worth it.

Omg the best pool ever! It was huge and not too deep. They even have a kids pool 😍and I loved how all meals were buffet style 🙌🏼 The waitresses just need to be a little more attentive. I waited like 10mins before they could serve me a drink. I had to stop eating & wait. Other then that, front...

Fantastic location - to be able to step out of your room and onto the beach within 20 paces is amazing. Beach was never crowded or noisy and we enjoyed the company of the friendly local stray dogs and watching the pelicans diving. Spacious room - liked hearing the waves - only downside was totally inadequate hair dryer. Buffet dining...

Centennial, Colorado
Reviewed 5 March 2017

We found this hotel to be well below average. The rooms are tired (at least ours was) and didn't appear to be particularly clean. The drapes were torn, the bed sheets worn and ill-fitting. There were feral dogs running loose on the property which at a minimum, disconcerting, not to mention potentially dangerous. If you like bad buffet food, this...
