I was amazed by the hospitality by the staff, their mission that everyone is relaxed, happy, and comfortable. You must try the spa is was heavenly❤❤❤ Our accommodations included breakfast, although we did have dinner and lunch at the resort a few times. We really enjoyed our dinner buffett, live music, and beautiful view. I recommend the grilled chicken it was amazing! Public transportation is accessible & only 10 pecos per person. My husband & I took the bus to Baca de? Sorry I dont remember the rest of the name, but it very peaceful & realaxing. Taxi service is always available at the resort, we took the taxi to the airport and had no waiting time they are there ready, and we left at 530am. The only set back to the reort is a very persistant concierge by the name Antonio he let us to believe that with our trip accomadations is was rquired that we attend a free buffett breakfast meeting!!😒 later on during the breaking meeting / sales pitch we were told that THATS WAS NOT REQUIRED & THAT THE RESORT DOES NOT CONDUCT BUSSINESS THAT WAY BY LIEING SO BEWARE! HIS NAME IS ANTONIO & HE DOES NOT TAKE THE ELEVATOR his claustrophobia. Other than that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESORT!!!

We had to change rooms twice after we were all unpacked because the air conditioning didn’t work. Plus, they charged us an extra $10 a night to stay on the first floor. We made the reservation months in advance but nothing was said about the extra charge. All the alcoholic drinks were short shotted. We will never stay here again!

Dear Brigitte, We are sorry for the situation with the air condtioning. Front Desk upgraded you to a Honeymoon Suiete and we hope this room was to your satisfaction. As per the 10 US per night this was for the location on the first floor you requested. We hope you enjoy your new room and the rest of your stay with us.

This property was a huge disappointment. The pictures show a far more beautiful, modern and luxurious resort that is just not there. The common areas such as the pool, restaurant, lobby, etc are well kept and look nice. The rooms are stuck in the 70s or 80s. They are falling apart. Several patches of repair and some things didn’t work such as outlets, lamps, etc.The linens are so old they have tiny holes in them and the towels are stained. This resort needs major updating and is extremely overpriced for the quality you actually get. Online there are photos of modern suites but we rented a room in each tower and neither was modern. This resort operates a timeshare presentation where I’m sure they are shown the updated rooms to convince people to buy only to realize it was a mistake once they see what they actually bought. The wait staff in the pool and restaurant area was great, reception not so much but not bad. The view is amazing. The private beach is nice but very rocky, not soft sand to walk on.I will not be staying here ever, nor would I recommend anyone to stay

Thank you for your feedback. The property is remodelling units, so far we have 3 room categories that are brand new, Deluxe Studio, Honeymoon Suite and Master Suite. We feel sorry your experience with us was not as expected. We thank you you for letting us know.

The room was large, immaculate and directly overlooking the ocean. We slept with the screen open listening to the ocean waves. It was a little dated, needed a little upkeep but immaculately clean. I liked it wasn’t a mega resort with tons of Americans. Instead there were a lot of Mexican families which was very enjoyable. They had a buffet dinner which was very good. Fresh fish and huge shrimp. The dessert portion was excellent! They had live music by the pool til 10 on which was a perfect finish to the evening. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will visit again!

The setting is unbeatable! The main pool was recently completely renovated. The facility is aging, however, and renovation of the rooms that was begun years ago has been halted. Unfortunately the deterioration has not.

The location was close to town. Easy to ride the bus or take a taxi or Uber. Beautiful view of the ocean from every room. Very clean rooms. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful especially Elizabeth, Monica at the consier desk. Christian at the registration desk. Ivan at the pool activities and Juan Quintero at the parking lot entrance. These people did a remarkable job of making us feel welcome.

We love the location first and foremost. The facility is in need of major updating however. Some rooms have been renovated, but all should be! The pool needs repair. The lounge chairs there are not user friendly and very dated. The staff is wonderful, so happy and friendly, easy going and helpful, kind and welcoming. No complaints there at all. We have spent many vacations here since the 1980’s and are now concerned that current ownership may not be investing in the future of Costa Sur.
