I have read the other reviews for this hotel and if you are looking for an-upscale hotel with carpeting, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc, then this is not the place for you. If you are someone looking for a great deal, willing to recognize that the rest of the world doesn't always place your priorities at the top of their list, then you will understand that this is a great deal. The room did leave something to be desired compared to many hotels that you may have stayed at in the states, the beds were mattresses on concrete blocks, there were no real ammenities in the room other than two bars of soap, etc., but if you are looking for a great hotel with amazing pools, a beautiful private beach on the ocean, the best-stocked and best-priced little convenience store, and the most considerate, friendly, accomodating staff I have ever met, than this is the place for you. We went with our two boys (6 &3) and we had to drag them out of the pools/ocean each day. The hotel is further away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip, but after our initial disappointment, we found that we actually preferred this and we never had a problem getting a taxi down into the strip. The restaurant food was good as long as you stuck with the traditional Mexican dishes, as they did not do as well on the more Americanized items (mini-pizza, etc.) We will absolutely stay at this hotel again.
