      The two bedroom family suite we stayed in was very nice. It was updated and had nice amenities. Air-conditioning worked very well. It was on the second floor and there is no elevator. Nice view from the patio. Only complaint were constant barking dogs from a neighboring property. They would bark all hours of the night and made both nights very difficult to sleep. The barking dogs made our stay unpleasant and hope the hotel to do something about it. I did complain to the front desk person when checking out about the barking dogs

      This is a beautiful place to stay! Since you walk into the front entrance all the way my room I was impressed. All the staff was very friendly. The restaurants were delicious. Can’t wait to come back!

      Loved it!!! Staff, property, restaurants, and amenities were 6 star. The location was close to great restaurants, bars, downtown, and a spectacular playa (beach). We would recommend this hotel to couples, large families, and even solo travelers. We will definitely be staying here again. Again, loved it!!!

      Would definitely stay here again!

      Really had a great experience at this hotel. You can see the beach from the hotel it is just steps away. They provide you with beach towels, umbrellas and chairs to use. Also, they let you borrow a golf cart for any trips that you may need to take nearby such as the grocery store. The food offered at the hotels cafe and restaurant was very delicious but is also located by many other small restaurants nearby. Felt very safe with the security offered and staff was super friendly.

      We had the penthouse for a 2 night stay in Bucerias. Everything was excellent: good service, close to beach, friendly people, nice pools, free bicycles, golf carts, beach chairs and umbrellas, and towels to borrow for the day. We were eight travelers (four adults, four teenagers) and the penthouse had plenty of space for us. We loved the kitchen, outside terrace with bar and pool and all the other amenities. The value can't be beat!

      You won't be disappointed.

      I selected Refugio del Mar based on other reviews on the site, and we were not disappointed. It's a couple of short blocks from the ocean, which we preferred over the very large resorts that line the beach. It also consists of more than one building, each with a pool and terraces, so is smaller in scale and very peaceful. Warm and helpful staff, nice accommodations, and lovely places to sit or dip into the pool. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
