On arriving and seeing this place, i wanted to ask the driver to about turn. However, we didnt and entered. Checked in in the sweltering heat outside; there is no indoor reception. However, during the process, we were given some cold drinks by the woman dealing with us, and she put some fans on. The deserted half finished buildings on either side are quite offputting. Grey concrete monoliths with the jungle reclaiming them.
The room itself was a timewarp. However, it had a fully functioning 1980s fridge, and a full cooker from the same era. The interior is ok, but its ramshackle and bitty. The aircon was also old, but worked wonderfully. The tv has only one spanish speaking channel.
Out on the balcony, the view is stunning. Someone on tripadvisor proclaimed here 'paraiso!'. I would agree. The beach is a hell of a hike down, but is nice and mostly private. There are no private beaches allowed in Mexico, so dont be fooled. I climbed teotihuacan sun pyramid last week and it was less exhausting than the hike back from the beach.
Pool area is what makes it for me. We had it to ourselves completely for the four days we were there. Spotlessly clean and tended to.
This hotel is not a suite, but simply lodges. It is set high up and is remote. You need a taxi to get to the bahias and La Crucecita, although we bothed walked both at least once, but definetely a taxi back. Taxis are 25 pesos, so not expensive.
The staff were all really friendly and welcoming and the woman in charge was so helpful and patient. She spoke no english, but spoke slowly for us so we could translate. She has good knowledge of the area, and could answer everything we asked. She was outraged when we told her the cost of our taxi from the airport, and set us up with a taxi back at a quarter of the price.
The wifi was bad, but she contacted the provider for me and found an english speaking person so i could say what the problem was. She also offered us any room we wanted to help remedy this.
The staff also did a laundry for us, ironed, for free. They also provide breakfast, continental, and will provide a fresh pizza if needed.
The problem here is that someone in the past had a vision to make this place place a hilltop paradise, but maybe run out of money, and stopped building or progress. The staff here have been left to get on with what they have to work with, and do what they can.
The staff would get 5 stars on tripadvisor, the accommodation probably a 2. So i have kind of gone midway. I would recommend, but i would say be wary, and dont expect a luxurious experience for the whole stay, but for privacy, no fuss and kind hearted staff, then go ahead. If you want a spa type experience, look elsewhere.
All pictures of this hotel are really photoshoped. May be was a nice hotel some years ago but q people who work in there told me that owner don't spend money to make better this place. You can find little ants in the toilet or near the balcony. The landscape is awesome but if you want to get the beach must go down like 130 steps. The door of my room couldn't close because it was hanging in one side. I will never com back again.
