New kitchen staff has greatly improved food! CocoThai grill is excellent with freshest of ingredients. Three pools give great choices of lounging/sunning. Totally open 17 miles of beachfront sand to walk and explore. Local Puerto Escondido and Chila village offer great colonial Mexico with the safest environment. You will find no barbed wire, door&window bars and no gfaffitti here.
Last week we spent three days in this resort. The apartments are very nice, but food and beverages were horrible. This resort is far away from Town, more than 30min by car. The apartments are well equipied with a nice kitchen, but the convinience store has less than minimum to prepare a meal.
The resort has two restaurants, the principal had a very bad service, we spent at least one hour to be served and when complaining, the answer was "we have a certification 'Distintivo H' in process and we can't do anything, take it or leave it".
The next Day we went to the Tai Restaurant, they didn't have anything from the menu, and when served, fish was raw.
The worst thing was in the pool bar, my daughter asked for a virgin piñacolada, and the waitress served a rum piña colada to a 11 year old. Just because my daughter said it tasted different we realized it had alcohol, when asked to prepare a new one the woman at the bar said they didn't have the ingredients to do another one, it was 3pm in the afternoon.
There were no managers, no one to give us an explanation nor an apology.
We do not recommend this place, it's a shame because the facsilities are great and the beach is spectacular.
