The worst experience, I have ever had. I booked for two nights and I only stay for one night it was the worst. The water in the pool was all salty it was the same as the sea. The water in the shower again all salty no fresh water. The rooms have lack of maintenance. The service in the whole hotel is not what they said please don't throw your money to this dump they sold you as an hotel.
Good place, but not the best service...

Just don't. They don't follow any COVID measures, not even the guy who seems to be the owner wears a proper mask and he is super rude to costumers. The hotel is crowded (although they are not supposed to work at full capacity). You will certainly be able to find something so much nicer and safer within that price range.
A 3* hotel at best!

I booked Hotel baXar with high hopes of enjoying a bit of luxury. I was sadly very disappointed to find that the hotel is a far cry from their 4* star rating. It makes me wonder who determines these ratings and why there isn’t a hotel organization out there to check out if this rating is still valid??
We arrived early which the hotel manager, Christopher, graciously permitted. We checked in around 12 noon. We were shown to our room which was right by the street with a view to their construction from our window. I told them this wasn’t okay for us, as we had booked well in advance. The assistant manager kindly showed us another room which was poolside and steps from the restaurant which was nice. When we checked the safe, it was broken and not usable. We were offered to put our valuables in the hotel’s safe or to upgrade to a nicer room on the 2nd floor, but told that we’d have to pay more. I was surprised to hear this considering that it’s low season here and any real 4* hotel would be more generous in offering a free upgrade especially since our room had a broken safe. What happened to the excellent service that is afforded by most 4 and 5* star hotels? Perhaps if we had been offered a free upgrade I would not be writing this review?
The bed is nice and I like the architecture at baXar, but unfortunately everything else is quite dated and in much need of maintenance and renovation. They are in the middle of renovations as I write this review, so there’s lots of hammering going on. The pool has mold/mildew in between the cracks of the tiles which indicates that either the hotel seldom cleans the pool or whoever maintains it doesn’t know the right ph balance. Normally if a pool is chlorinated properly there would never be any mold/mildew on the pool tiles. The bathroom mirror is oxidized and very old.
The food is okay and in my opinion over priced. Three chicken tacos cost 118 pesos. Normally tacos are around 50 or 60 pesos in most restaurants. A soft drink is $2. Now if this was truly at the standard of a 4* resort, of course I wouldn’t mind paying these prices, but baXar falls well short of being 4 stars.
I can imagine that 10 years ago this resort must have been lovely. The photos on their website don’t accurately represent the reality of this resort today. Sorry folks, but if you’re seeking a 4* hotel this isn’t going to meet your expectations. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend staying at baXar.

Is a place to rest, no tv, but you can forget everything bad. The meal is good, a bit expensive, good pool also and a very good place to relax, the owners are nice people, the attention, atmosphere, I don’t recommend get into the beach, could be dangerous, but, sunset there is just breathtaking.
