Great Experience

Pros: The service! All the staff were helpful and made a huge difference in the enjoyment of our trip - special recognition to German, Diego, & Ana!
Location: Perfect location - talk to the front desk about activities. Walk, eat at the wonderful restaurants, islas del rosario, day trip.
This was one of the best hotel experiences I have had. The location is in a perfect central location. It is also safe - gated with an iron gate during the day that requires buzzing in, and then at night, the large wooden door closes over the iron gate, requiring the night desk person to make sure it is a hotel guest before opening the door and gate. The space is really nice with plenty of courtyard seating plus the rooftop pool and lounge areas. The rooms are well appointed, although some are much larger than others (be sure to verify what you are booked for prior to your arrival).* The hotel is very peaceful and generally quiet, but be warned that it is an older building and you can hear a lot of your neighbors/passersby in the courtyard. Not to mention the hotel bird (Tato) that likes to sing some mornings (he only sang one morning we were there, but it was pretty loud and un-song like). The hotel bird, other than his singing, provided quite a thrill for us. He hops around, joins in at meals, and can be held and petted. He was really quite fun!
