Stayed there Feb. 2002. A little over a week ago we visited with a friend who is now managing there and he gave us a tour of recent improvements.
The old section, the white building in their website, has been redone outside. Itís now the same red adobe exterior as the new section. Lotís of nice exterior remodeling/landscaping between old and new wings.
The two bottom floors of the old section have been gutted and completely remodeled. All new interiors and new plumbing/ lighting. Beautiful new bathrooms with large tubs and showers. Lotís of artistic ceramic tile and sinks in bathrooms. New furniture, refrigs., TVís and remote controlled A/C. The patios off the rooms have been redone. Gone are the concrete posts which have been replaced with the same weathered wood used throughout BdM. Patios are shaded and each has a hammock. New sliding patio doors have been installed.
The updates are impressive as are the prices. We were quoted $65US + tax for the new rooms. Thereís one large suite in the remodeled portion. It has a small dining area and a hot tub on the patio. They call it their honeymoon suite and ask approx. $120US + tax for it.
Other rooms in the old section are still the same with plans for remodeling.
The old rooms are a bargain. Most face the bay and have patios, good ventilation, and fans. A few interior rooms in the old section donít have views and depend upon fans.
As for the new section, ďjunior suites.Ē etc. rooms in that section are as they appear in the BdM website. Their site is accurate.
The restaurant is adequate given itís one of only a handful of places in the immediate area. We had breakfast there twice and snacks while at the beach. The lobby bar, which is an open patio, is a quiet place to relax in the evening. Good views and good breeze.
Both pools were open during the holidays. The hotel's beach area is O.K. There are plenty of palapas. Furniture is worn but nothing a large beach towel canít cover. No arm wrestling for space. The sand under the palapas could use more policing by maintenance.
Madera is our first choice for area. BdM stays at the top of our list for places to stay.
