    Yes, there is prostitution there, but it certainly isn't blatant. If you are observant, you might notice the following:

    Male guest leaves hotel solo in the evening.

    Sometime (15 minutes to several hours) later, male guest returns accompanied by young lady. They go to male guest's room.

    Sometime (15 minutes to next morning) later, young lady leaves hotel solo. (If male guest is a gentleman, he escorts young lady to the gate and arranges a motorbike taxi for her.)

    You won't see much of anything in the public areas of the hotel, as management keeps a close rein on that sort of thing.

    If the sight of people coming to and leaving the hotel is scandalous to your friends then they should stay away.

    If they are the least bit sophisticated or worldly, it is considered one of the best non-AI places to stay in BC, with pool, restaurant, etc. etc.

    its boca chica....so of course there is prostitution going on. BUt as Victor says...its not run like a frat house like other hotels in BC.

    I have seen families stay there and one time even a religious group and married couples. But there are definitely Chica Chasers there...some discrete some not.

    agree. you won't see the "almost no clothes on" type chicas coming and going from the candil. management will caution you on your activities (i've seen this a few times). i wouldn't worry too much about this....

    Does anyone know the status of the construction next door? When I was last there (as a satisfied return guest) a construction project was just starting- a parking garage, I think. It was pretty loud during the day.

    Any updates?

    I stayed at the Candil last March and this November and the construction is still going on. But I must say was really surprised at the progress!! It is another hotel or so I was told. I took photos in November of the beginning of the first floor then darn.... forgot to take pics in Novmeber. OHHHH well going back in late Feb so I will see then hehe Love this hotel to the OP my mother and I stayed there!! Like jrzyguy says it BC so of course all the small hotels are full of chica chasers!!! Go with an open mind and you will have a great time!! Counting the days til Im back!!!

    why do people worry about prostitution unless they are planning to partake in it ?

    just go and have fun and you'll hardly notice....

    well..there was ONE time i stayed at another hotel near by. I swear it was like a frat party. All these guys with there chicas and it was VERY rowdy. I dont mind guys having their fun...but I couldnt get any sleep!!! (take the damn party to calle duarte! and i had a friend of mine visit from santo domingo and he was mortified. It was a horrible experience...there was a big party right outside my window every night and when you walked in all the guys had chicas on their laps. Kinda cheapened the experience. THat hotel has since cleaned up things tho.

    Candil is NOT like that at all tho. Just saying..i can see why somoene wouldnt want THAT kind of environment.
