Some of the pools were closed and hot tub was closed. The pool that was open didn't have much shade and was small so if a few people come in you have a problem with social distancing. The food was like bar food and since the only place to eat that was all you could have unless you buy food and cook for yourself. The kitchen was ok. Also no one to service your room, so you had to call for anything you needed done.

Our room needed a carpet cleaning inside and in the balcony area due to the three months of not being used so it’s understandable. We got a different room and Dede was helpful to send someone to give us the new room card. Not much choice for food except for a Pizza place inside the compound. A little bit pricier for the room rate but considering there’s not much availability around, i could say our stay was nice.

Pros: good location, good price. Resturant on site, pricy but delicious. Two hot tubs and pools. Cons: No internet access and $10 daily free for wifi! So noisy! Gap in the door, you could see outside even when it was shut and locked. Yucky coffee.

Only good things to say about the facility, except for the absence of free internet. If you want it, you must pay $10/day for it! All hotels in El Portal seem to charge for it. Apart from that, would book it again.

I didn't like the bed sheets. Not fitted and clearly old, very used.

The spa jet tub was a nice feature, along with the fireplace and being on the river. I did feel the spa tub floor was uneven under my feet though, maybe due to previous water damage? I did also book a room with two beds but was provided one king - but was not a deal breaker for me. Would come back again.
