Entering the modern, clean lined lobby, perfectly located, and being greeted by 3 of the most attractive early 20's people on earth, I said to myself, alright. I over looked the fact that the one who checked me in couldn't tell me where on the city map the major sights were.
When I returned to my room after lunch for a post travel siesta, I noticed that the enchanting music from outside was still in full bloom. When I layed down on my bed and looked at the tall marble wall on the right I noticed the polished marble had a mirror effect and I could see out onto the patio above through an angled skylight...and people on the patio could see into my room/bed. When I called to ask about a sight barrier, my call was misinterpreted and I was told the music only played until 1 am. So, I requested a different room.
Another Venus came to the room, and after one room in between, brought me to the fine room I kept. BTW, there's free Internet, except it didn't work for my 2 day stay. They are going to work on it.
I asked directions that evening to a restaurant 5 blocks away and was drawn a figure 8. When I requested a google map directions search and showed the guest service person how to do that, it was more of a check mark route (those Spanish streets).
The shower was in one of those undivided bathrooms, which I like. But, the drains weren't large enough and by the time both my wife and I showered, the water was rising almost into the bedroom. The sink in the bedroom overflowed when the stopper slid closed. There was no way to pull it up as when I put my hand into the sink the water overflowed more.
The rooftop patio was nice. Breakfast was nice. The girls and boys at the front desk were nice.
This place needs a good manager, keep and train the staff, change the manager. Pay attention to minor physical plant issues. And, put a drape between the skylight and the bedroom.
