The bathroom did not have a bathtub but there was a spacious shower room. A rack with wheels was installed in the bathroom and it was convenient to put a makeup pouch on top.
I did not have to worry about water splashing out, because the shower room was made of glass.
The shower was fixed on the wall, but it was nice that I was able to adjust the water pressure.

There was a beachfront restaurant called “Sea180 Coastal Tavern” in the hotel. Not only hotel guests but also locals and tourists were eating there.
A bar counter in the restaurant.
The terrace seat is recommended, and if you ask, they will bring blankets for you.
It is a buffet on Sundays and it was crowded. I liked it so much that I ate here every day.
Even though it is delicious and lovely looking, the price was very reasonable. However, it took a while for the food to arrive.
There was a small shop by the front desk, which sells ice-cream, sodas, snacks and alcohol. I did not see many people shopping there.

The hotel had a large swimming pool and a jacuzzi. It was supposed to be locked, but it was always unlocked. The view was great from the pool and jacuzzi.
There were a lot of chairs and tables by the pool, and I saw people enjoying wine and bear.
There was also a fitness center that overlooks the sea, restaurant and the pool.

Staff and customer base
The hotel staff were always smiling and were very friendly people. Especially the manager remembered that I had stayed here before and was especially kind to me. Also, when I told the front desk that the water server at the fitness center had run out, the staff came and set it up. It was a small thing, but I thought it was very generous.
It was during spring break, so I saw many families with children, business men, pilots and couples staying at this hotel.
It takes about 30 minutes by car from the airport. The area around the hotel used to be a more Mexican city, but I still felt its legacy. If you leave the hotel after sunset it is a little unsafe because it is near the boarder with Mexico. The restaurants were cheap and delicious. The busses are usually on time, so you will not have trouble going out even without a car. Wal-Mart, is located at the nearest highway exit, and I had no trouble getting to it.
A pizza restaurant near the hotel.
A Mexican restaurant called “Albeto’s Taco Shop” which is 5 minutes from the hotel.
99 cents store near the hotel.
I was able to enjoy a resort feel during my stay. If you want to drive a car and enjoy marine activities like surfing and fishing, but are also on a business trip, I think this is the perfect place to stay. This is a hotel allows you to enjoy a nice hotel life, but also allows you to enjoy the local life as well. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.
