Best location, right in front of the beach. You can hear the ocean and relax in your own room.

Pochote had a bug invasion, big ants with wings pouring out of the roof. I have photographs of the German male manager taking photographs of the bugs. They lied to Orbitz and our credit card about negotiations, and refused to give us more than two nights refund. We stayed zero nights, but they would only offer another room and two night refund. Our credit card will dispute the charge.

Very unprofessional. Did not feel like a hotel. Mid day on a hot afternoon we asked the bar for some drinks he said the kitchen was closed as he stood behind the bar with all these drinks around him. He told us to go to town. We were one couple out of a few guests so maybe they didnt feel the need to please. Cleaning lady didnt change the sheets for few nights she just left the same stained sheets on the bed until we complained. Only good thing is that we stayed 2 days and not any more.
