    We found this hotel quite by luck! It was a trendy, hip spot with a modern themed decor: barnwood, fire pits, farm-to-table restaurant, and an amazing staff happy to meet you and make your stay just right! We will be back soon!

    YES you can, also the IFE/INE card works, however passport is more "international" since it more official outside of Mexico. There is a different approach with Car rental since they required an ID with your address. Enjoy!

    ""City view" rooms do not face the pool, so they are generally quieter (and also slightly larger)."
