First night there had dinner in restaurant. Didnt know it but waiter didnt speak English and brought us all the wrong food. No "I'll get you something else". That was it! No compensation! Just a brief "waiter doesn't speak English". Our receipt from expedia said "Breakfast included" which was EXCELLENT. The receipt also said $50 in beverages. Which we found out at checkout was 50 pesos. There again a "Too bad" explaination.

This was the first cliffside resort built in 1951 in Zihua, note there's no elevators and huge set of staircases. So, not the best choice for anyone with body aches, poor knees, or ankles, etc. However, the views are gorgeous, the beach bar and palapas offer shade with old growth of plants and trees. It's more of Mexican quality and style of hotel, which I love the ambiance of. Food is more bland but very well prepared and prices are extremely reasonable. Some rooms do not have AC and the bathrooms are very old/dingy. The views and hammock on our deck made up for it. You get cliffside restaurant view, pool options and fabulous beach access in one for a very affordable price. Just beware of those stairs! I had to take 3 rests to make it up to the reception. We found a taxi could get us up/down a steep side road as our room was pool level.

It is run down and had lots of issues with no hot water. There were way to many steps and can be quite dangerous at night. The food was mediocre.

The staff is fantastic. We stayed in room 18 which was nice. Updates are needed badly to the pool area, step, railings, light fixtures and entire resort. We learned half way through our stay, they would deliver ice, water, breakfast to your room We paid for breakfast but only went 4 times due to the amount of stairs to the restaurant. Which is also where you get ice and water. View is gorgeous.
