Reviewed by: carrie from Canada, review #1699

When: April 2006

Beautiful long beach. Great holiday for parents & kids. Good thing we brushed up on our Spanish.

After our first night we had to ask for an ocean view room, which proved to be worth it. Our first night was facing the parking lot and had to listen to the night club ALL NIGHT. Even our oldest son who is our deepest sleeper couldn't sleep through it.

The beach was long and beautiful. Shopping just fine near the hotel, no need to go to Zihuatanejo ... didn't like it there.

Locals periodically on the beach.

The Parasail was a great bargain. Walked down the beach to see the daily feeding of the Crocodiles. Water was too rough for our youngest son, Jason, 4 years. The pools were quite sufficent for him. Thomas, our oldest son, loved "beating" himself up in the waves.

Food was decent, and drinks were even better. Great stay for a quick 1 week get-away.
