Stayed with my 2 year old twins between xmas and new years for just one night. Great stay. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They let us check in as soon as a room was cleaned so that we could get our cranky kids to nap. Loved the Mexican bar/restaurant on site. Had a happy hour there and dinner. The...

Let's start off, with the few things that could be improved. They are missing the mark, by not having microwaves, for the guest to use or vending machine. It's a Latin inspired resort, food and decor. Only food options, are the Tequila bar, that doesn't stay open late or Tinto, that opens up on Thursday evening, that sells, upscale Latin...

Fun and vibrant and actually an important architectural structure. Great staff because: they messed up our rooms upon check-in (clerical error) but quickly redeemed themselves with an upgrade to a suite and comp. drinks. Comfortable accommodations, great pool and hot tub. Excellent Spanish tapas restaurant. Also, the El Hefe restaurant in the hotel is great for drinks

This property is a bit older, but it's very cute and modern. I would have been disappointed if I had paid the current rate, but I did Priceline name your own price for $75 and it was a deal. They do allow dogs, so be aware of that; we weren't. There were some "water ants" in the bathroom in the...

This place is comfortable, spacious, clean, and colorful! I enjoyed being here. The room was spacious. It had a table and two chairs, two dressers, a small fridge. The coffee maker was not very useable- it worked but produced colored water. The bed was comfortable. I think this place was great for the price.
