I must admit, we were really looking forward to staying here but we were left a little bit unmoved.
We stayed for just over a week in July in a deluxe suite.
The hotel is set on a surprisingly busy road next with a small park between it and the beachfront.
The building itself looks like it was erected in the 1920s and it looks like it needs a bit of a spruce up (for example, the gold painted sign is peeling quite badly).
The reception area is quite small, as you would expect in a boutique hotel. Adjoining the reception are is a small sitting area and a reasonable sized bar and restaurant (where breakfast is also served).
There is a small lift that accesses the 5 floors in the hotel; a spiral staircase wraps around the lift the whole way up too.
Our room was on the 5th floor and consisted of a generous sitting area, a small shower/toilet, a large bedroom and a large bathroom with a whirlpool bath.
Two sets of patio doors (one each for the sitting area and the bedroom) led to a balcony where there was just enough room to stand but definitely not enough room to sit, regardless of what the pictures on their website show.
The furniture in the room was a bit careworn and there was a large stain on the carpet. The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable but the rest of the rooms fixtures worked ok.
There was quite a lot of traffic noise from the street, even 5 floors up.
The hotel also has a small (maybe 10 metres long) outdoor swimming pool, a hammam and a small gym (one exercise bike, one cross trainer and one running machine).
The staff were friendly and attentive throughout our stay and we're definitely the best thing about the hotel.
While the hotel advertises and prices itself as a 5 star, I'd say it is nearer a low to medium end 4 star with way too high prices.
The facilities and finish just didn't justify the price they're charging, which is a real shame as the staff were so nice.
For me, boutique hotels have to have top end finishing and some real thought and style applied to the facilities. Sadly, this is missing from the Hotel Juana.
