If you want a nice place to be in the beach with nice food and great service this is the place. Ask for the roasted pineapple or the mint infused watermelon! Also the gins are great. The beach is very clean and the sea view relaxing!

I have now stayed at this hotel on multiple occasions and also read the reviews as it relates to the staff. I think the key for the guests is to exhibit some patience and respect with the staff when you first arrive (whether that is the front desk, beach or restaurants) and you'll be rewarded with amazing service and a high level of commitment. The staff works very hard and any acknowledgement of that makes them work even harder. You do not have to be fake, just a smile and a good attitude. Israel and his team at the Beach area do a great job with service and even made me a custom smoked pineapple mezcal drink that was incredible. Luis at the rooftop seafood bar made some wonderful ceviche and sashimi with the fish I caught. Ulysses assisted with all my food needs. I needed to stay an extra night and instead of them trying to give me a huge price increase on my room and take advantage of the situation, Ronald treated me fairly. Benjamin, the bellman, is still the best and gets me whatever I need. Even the taxi company they use for the airport trips has pleasant drivers. Mark

I loved this hotel. I am a visual artist and my husband is a writer, so we loved the art work and the concept of this truly unique, utterly unpretentious, creative, gorgeous hotel. The service was impeccable and the rooms were impeccable The free bikes and ferry ride to the beach club were nice touches. The roof deck infinity pool and pool-within-a-pool hot tub were outrageously nice. What else? Spacious rooms & common spaces/24 hr gym/lovely drinks/sweet people. My one suggestion would be to turn down the music sound level in the restaurant, though I asked them to turn it down at dinner and they did. This hotel is adults only—even if you have kids back home—it makes it absolutely heavenly. Note: As you can tell, El Ganzo is NOT adults-only in a cheesy couples/singles hooking up/heart shaped bathtub way at ALL (thank goodness). It's just a place where there's no kids. We cannot wait to go back. It was definitely pricey but we felt it delivered a experience that far exceeded our expectations. I don't think the photos do El Ganzo justice. It is truly special.

Showed up Christmas eve for dinner with family and friends. Was turned away because we had an eleven and fourteen year old, we had reservations for 10, never was told was an adult only restaurant and could not bring kids, so had to find somewhere else to eat on Christmas eve. I would have given 0 stars it had to put one to give review.

We stayed here for 3 nights and after high hopes, were thoroughly disappointed by this hotel! The overall beauty of the place, including the views and spectacular rooftop pool area, was unfortunately overshadowed, by bad management, and predominantly terribly slow service, including lack of drink and wait staff (a couple of diligent staff on the rooftop were constantly seen visibly running!). The very expensive food, was also mediocre at best (other than the guacamole). The main restaurant downstairs and the rooftop staff are so slow to complete orders! On one occasion it took close to an hour after ordering, to receive the wrong cocktail! I then accepted it so I didn't have to wait another hour! Another time I was given the wrong check. Room service food was also disappointingly cold, and for example, the most expensive meal on the menu, New York Steak, came overcooked with minimum charring and no sauce eg. no flavor (no salt and pepper on tray either). The best part of that particular meal was the accompanying polenta and vegetables which were not bad. I had already decided not to return because of the lack of service, but we were also horrified at check out when the management staff wanted us to pay an extra US$100 for 2 Steel water containers which we had not used or taken from the room during our stay. We told them we put them in a drawer on check in, as we did not want to use them and they were in the way taking up some of the minimal counter space. On check out they said that they could not find them in the drawer, so they wanted to charge us US$100 for them. As we had no interest in them, and we certainly don't have them, I refused to pay. The management staff were very accusing and rude! The implication was that they preferred to believe that the customer/guest had stolen the water bottles! Maybe a cleaning staff member took the drink bottles out of the drawer as their own souvenir? I actually heard of several thefts during my 4 day stay! This I believe is a Scam anyway, trying to get more money out of guests! Why put SS drink bottles for sale in the room in the first place, taking up valuable counter/table space? The water from faucets in Mexico in general, and including this hotel, is unsafe to drink anyway! Also 2 plastic water bottles were provided in the mini bar free per day. Why not have souvenir SS drink bottles in the shop to avoid clogging up counter space which the guests are after all renting? I enjoyed the art and the creative ideas behind the hotel, but this hotel has major problems to solve!
