Pros are it's location, nicer than average bedding, pool and air conditioning. The reception and staff are a bit impersonal. One of the English speaking bellboys who we tipped well became outright lazy and uninterested in fetching one of our bags he forgot from our car because it was already parked around the block. We were initially given a smallish room with a tiny window opening out to almost nothing. On asking we were given a much larger and nicer room with a large window looking out on the pool. Which looks nice and blue from upstairs but our kids were disappointed that the water was not very clean. We stayed for 4 days. Only on the day we left we noticed some teens braving the dirt floating around in an otherwise nice pool. The A/C was surprisingly pretty good. Room was really quiet, no noises at all. But the shower, which we had to run for a bit on the 1st day to let the muddy water become clear enough for use, and the sink in the bathroom, did not drain well despite completely removing the stops as a last resort. The coffee maker almost blew out the circuits but it was quickly replaced with a working unit. The hotel restaurant is fancy and pricey for quite average food. Thankfully we weren't around much in the hotel, but exploring the town. The facility is quite huge for a boutique hotel of this sort. Converted from a convent, it is also quite nicely maintained. However, in spite of a $200+ USD per night price, they still try to nickel and dime you with Wi-Fi charges and the coffee pouches for the in-room coffee maker the 2nd day onwards, and such. Also, they only offer expensive valet parking, paid for separately. There were quite a few other hotels we'd seen on Tripadvisor and Expedia, right around this one for much less. We've stayed in many nice boutique hotels in the historic centers of several Mexican towns, that offered free parking, wi-fi, and some even included breakfast. So this one in comparison does not provide enough for what they charge. So why did we book this one? Because this is the only one with A/C and a pool.
