Dear Alberta, First at all, we really want you to know how much we appreciate your valuable remark about your staying with us; Comments like that helps us to improve the quality of the service that we offer. We want that our guest always feel comfortable and good with all the services that we given to them. With that reason on mind we manage the booking system for most of our service, because when we are full house it’s the better way to guarantee to our guest they can have for what they want without causing discomfort to them. When you stayed with us we were out the season, so the hotel occupancy was not full, but our policy it must be on March because no matter what, we want the best for our guest. What it related to the shuttle, we ask to our clients to book for it to have a control so we also can reach them in case they can’t not assist or be on time for the bus, and help them to not miss it in case something unexpected shows up. We are sorry to hear about the situation with the towels during your stay. We apologize for all the inconvenient that did cause you. During your staying was a problem with the electrical power company which force the laundry department to work with the minimum among of machines allow because the power of the electricity wasn’t enough to make work all of them. As a plan B we sent the towel out to be washed. We have already taken the corrective and preventive actions that guarantee us that things like you've mentioned before won't happen again. Right now, we got some employees whose work at recreations and pool department watching over people who may not respect the hotel policy. We got 2 kinds of pool area for the same reason, because we know that everybody do not have the same interest and hobbies, but we definitely want everyone in the hotel feels good. Add to this, we are pleasant to inform you that our staff i

Dear Richard, Thank you very much for your comments on Expedia. We will put an eye on the shuttle service. The shuttle has to be book a day in advance as people are making plans and this is our recommendation in all of our documentations and oral briefings. Transit time is normally even in peak hours 25 to 30 minutes but at the moment there are construction going on the National Highway which will be culminated very soon. Nevertheless I would like to precise that we are the only hotel in the area having a free shuttle to downtown with exactly 239 daily seats. Now I have seen places like the Mayan Riviera in mexico where people are staying at 90 minutes from airport or Playa del Carmen downtown, no free shuttle and they pay 50$ minimum for a taxi. If ever a guest cannot get one of the 239 daily seats a taxi is 40,000 Pesos which represents $13,50 USD for a family of 4 ($3,38 per pax). Nevertheless if ever that would be a issue with one of our guest we would definitely make it a duty to make sure you go downtown on the shuttle.
