      The deluxe/superior rooms are spacious and clean. Rooms on the “seaside view” don’t differ much with the “mountain view” because you won’t appreciate the view of the sea at a far. Besides, who would want to be charged a thousand peso or so for the view you cannot appreciate. The 32″ Sony Bravia LCD TV is definitely a focal point in the room.

      The services of the receptionists and concierge are excellent. Ask anything and they will courteously and promptly attend to your request.

      Tariff rates are roughly high (ranges from 11,000.00 to 15,000.00 a night).

      All in all, this hotel is above average. You will deserve every penny you pay for an overnight stay.

      My last stay was a solo one a little over two weeks long in October 2008. I’ve also been to this hotel a few times previously, once with my 13 yr old son, and other times just passing through solo.
      What this hotel offers over the other hotels in the area is an outdoor haven free from internal solicitation and curious external onlookers. The staff respected our privacy. The pool has lounge chairs in the water and out, and is large enough to swim in without feeling crowded. The food was best outside at the pool restaurant as well, compared to inside offerings and outside menus at other hotels in the area. There was a decent selection of drinks, and prices are very reasonable.
      You do need to aggressively get someone’s attention to be served if at the pool area, but I tend to consider that a plus and would trade that for privacy any day. The food choices remain the same each trip but the ingredients tend to change slightly in each dish. (If you like consistency that could be a drag.)
      The rooms are always clean, and service is usually good. Timing for housekeeping is hit or miss unless you work something out or keep a local schedule (mine was graveyard shift so I slept through many opportunities to get my room cleaned and have supplies replenished.)
