          Good evening Pueblomijitas. I read your review with interest as I know this hotel and have wondered about staying with my wife. From what I have seen, you can stay here with transport and excursions and still pay less than most of the other hotels in the area charge for just bed and breakfast. When you look at the price, was it really as bad as you have made it out to be? For me, it wouldn't be a main holiday but instead, a getaway from cooking, washing and other household chores. Your review has made me think twice?

          No not quite as bad, I think that I was a bit miffed that the trips didn't go to plan. Food is good, but I was truthful about the swimming pool.
