Service At the San Rafael was superb. Staff was very helpful and friendly, location was great. Although rooms might need a little cosmetic improvements, we just loved our stay.

I've been to Hotel San Rafael for 1 week in this last new year`s.... the experience was bizzarre! Not only the room smelled like it hasn`t been used for the last couple of years, it was VERY old, not comfortable at all and even inside the bath you can smell the dust!!!
The pool is ok, but the service is horrendous! The breakfast is basically a totally artificial orange juice and bread and butter!
The hotel used to have a Cassino (no wonder why it was closed) and nowadays the building is abandoned... looks like a haunted hotel!
Do not recomend at all not even for families, couples or friends.

Extremely expensive and horrendous rooms. The hotel was literally falling apart. It was a bit like that hotel in the Shining but without any maitenance done for the last 50 years.
