Ok for one night

When I asked the clerk if there were WIFI she said yes - but then went to room and it was not available. Went back to clerk who said WIFI was only in the lobby area. There was no hot water for the shower. The sign said they use solar power to "Save the Earth" - but had to run the water for 20 minutes and it never got warm. We were there on a Saturday night and the room was in the back but still the noise from the bar was overwhelming.,

Missed Oportunity

For the money stay at Isle Verde, More quality and better neighborhood. Would not stay here again. Which is a shame, the beach is great and they have a great staff. The maintenance seems non-existent. Great location, cant get any closer to the beach. Great staff, well staffed, friendly and helpful Goes downhill very fast from there, Food is good but over priced Rooms are very clean and larger than normal, but worn out. The beds creak, the dressers are worn but functional, the closet doors seemed ready to fall off. The door locks were missing or insufficient and long overdue for replacement. Wall and ceiling paints were stained. Air conditioner either quit or was up to the task.

Great location, poor experience

I wanted a second honeymoon and this hotel looked perfect at the begging. When we arrived our reservation was lost, they gave us a room with no cable and a bathroom half finished. In the middle of the night the water was cut and the excuses the front desk gave were not logic. Few staff for a full hotel capacity. We had our breakfast somewhere else because no waiter arrived, but something went right at the end, we received a call from the reception remaining us the check out hour was at 11am. It is a shame because they have a great location, we spend the rest of the weekend in another hotel, same rate but we a superior service.

Run down but helpful staff

Located in a gated community on the beach. The lobby and bar area are cool. The rooms are run down, have leaky toilets and a whole lot of mosquitos. The staff is very friendly and helpful though.

Wedding Visit

The staff was courteous and friendly. There was no water for showers during our entire visit. The kitchen sink did not get hot water until day two. Water leaked across the floor from the kitchen sink unless the sink was turned off.

Bring money

Location was right on the beach. Great! Sunday the locals all arrive and the wait staff seems to ignore the hotel guests in favor of 'visiting' with their friends on the beach. The price of drinks seemed to depend on the person serving them. Prepare to be gouged. The food in the restaurant was excellent, but be prepared to wait a long time for service.
