Thank you very much Kimberly for your lovely review. And of course, I will be looking forward to your return.
By the way, I don´t think you will need to bring earplugs. :) At least, there´s only a very small chance the pump starts getting noisy again precisely during your stay. And if it does, simply tell us and we´ll take care of it immediately. The thing is, no hydraulic pump is safe from the humidity in Playa del Carmen. Every 8 months or so we have to take it apart and repair it so it will run silently again.
Apologies for the inconvenience it has caused you. I will add this to our information pdf-file so our guests will know that they need to inform us if it should happen during their stay.
I´ve never heard structural dog noises myself, or anyone talking about it, but I will investigate if one of our neighbours has bought a dog recently. I am hoping though that the dog was also there just for vacation purposes...:)
