Paul showed us the room and checked in throughout our vacation to make sure everything was going well
Location:
Paul's It is located in a perfect location away from all the business of the main hotel zone but close to enough to access if one wanted to
but there's a little shopette in CP and an OXXO convenience store basically across the street
but that is not Paul's fault
older building but interesting construction never have seen anything like this one Good location and bus transportation
The restaurants that Paul recommended in the area were awesome
