This hotel was a huge disappointment. Despite the attractive architecture this hotel was a total flop. The ambience was completely lacking - the place was dead. During my entire stay I think I saw maybe one other guest and maximum two parties dining in the restaurant. It wasn't because it was a down season because other hotels in the area were booked up and there were several conferences in town. I would assume it is because everything is wildly overpriced. (e.g. internet costs 30USD a day!!!). They nickel and dime you for all sorts of extra costs they don't tell you about when booking (e.g. a fee for insuring the belongings in your room!). The worst part by far is the members of the staff who seem to feel that you are getting some sort of privilege from staying there!
Maid service is terrible. If you can't stick to their schedule it's almost impossible to get your room made up.
No fitness area.
Bar is dark and gloomy.
Staff has very low levels of English (I realize it's a Spanish-speaking country, but I'm just pointing out a difference from other hotels of this calibre in the area)
I won't be back and I wouldn't recommend this place.
