The tiles are falling out of the pool, bad cracks in patio floor, hardware in rooms is corroded, refrigerator is dented and dirty and shower leaks into the room so edges are black mold.
Advantages,- the resort is on the ocean, right on the ocean (if the property was newer the balconies would not have been made out of solid concrete,- rather they should have been made of slats or glass to take advantage of the view.) All rooms are on the ocean,- rare to find these days. Property is located a few miles outside of town,- I think an advantage if you have transpiration.
Smaller intimate feel at this resort yet options which many of the larger resorts offer (a heated pool, Mexican music some nights and little craft opportunities)
Reservations: A slap of disorganization When my daughters family arrived, the reception said they did not have any rooms available and would not for a few days! Unbelievable to prepay for my daughters family and yet they had to sleep on our floor if they wanted to be at our resort. (They were offered a hotel a-ways down the road). No refund, very little apology, more of a "tough luck" policy. Yes we had a confirmation and yes the resort was involved in the reservation.
I am at the resort writing this and looking around. Furniture is dirty and rusty. I would rate it at a 2 high star property...maybe a low 3 star.
I truly wish I could recommend this quaint property; however in reality,- there are so many better options in Nuevo Vallarta,- or Puerto Vallarta. Maybe at some point if they start investing in this property it will again be a respected resort.
