We spent two nights here in a standard room with king-sized bed. The room was a little small with no balcony. At the front desk they offered me a double queen room at the same rate whith they said was a better room, but I wanted the king bed. My sisters were in a double queen room nearby, and their room was bigger and had a balcony. One advantage our king room had over the other was that we had a full tub - a nice large size to lay down and soak, which came in handy when the weather was rather chilly.
The hotel is located just a couple blocks from the Malecon, and it was great to be able to go there for our morning walks. As a matter of fact, if the Ramada wasn't so terribly noisy at night I would be tempted to stay there more often just for the advantage of being so close to the Malecon. I will consider other motels along the Malecon in the future.
The noise I'm talking about was the music from Joe's Oyster Bar, and it has been mentioned in other reviews. It goes on until 3 in the morning or so. If you picture yourself partying that late, then the noise won't bother you. Otherwise, I would suggest bringing ear plugs. My husband used earplugs the second night, but I was so exhausted from the first sleepless night that I was able to sleep like a baby the second night.
We were fortunate to have booked at a special rate which included free breakfast, and I thought the breakfast buffet offered was very nice and exceeded my expectations. They had eggs cooked to order as well as fresh fruit, yogurt, assortment of sweet rolls, toast upon request, and a variety of Mexican goodies such as chilaquiles, refried beans and much, much more. There was something for everyone.
There are lots of great restaurants nearby, so be sure to check them out. We especially liked Panama for casual dining.
