Las habitaciones están muy austeras No tienen smart tv Las toallas de la habitación están pésimas El aire acondicionado es muy ruidoso El café que dan (marca Marino) es muy malo. La alberca exclusiva de tiempo compartido y el restauran la Concha es de lo más rescatable El servicio de los meseros excelente. Es muy caro como para la calidad de las habitaciones, muy viejas.

Took us about 10 mins to wait for the elevator to go to the pool. The food was nasty and buffet was overcrowded. Most of the staff was rude. Won’t be going back !

Expedia should advertise this place website claims to have offer parking and wifi yes they do for an extra charge $80 per parking per day and $10 dollars for wifi per device, hotel is clean and looks amazing on pictures, we came in a middle of a pandemic and people don’t respect protocol they dont wear mask people smoking everywhere pools are over crowded, elevators take for ever they are extremely small and always full, thi place is for the locals and made me feel unsafe, costumer service was over the top that made me feel so uncomfortable We had to check out a day earlier , upon our arrival manager showed up to my room offering an upgrade then he send wine chocolates and fruit , 10 minutes later someone showed up with toiletries when there was some already there , then they called asking to me to go get dinner at their restaurant When all I really wanted was to sleep and left alone, I also forgot to mention that I wanted my Luggage with me at all times but they were so passionate about let them leave my Luggage on the lobby alone so I can go to their VIP office and check in ! Anyways worse experience ever motel 6 would have been better!
