We recently stayed at El Convento Boutique Hotel in Antigua and it was a wonderful experience.
The architecture is unique and beautiful, it was previously a convent, as the name suggests, and it could not have been more beautiful. The rooms are spacious, clean and beautifully decorated in local handicraft.
The staff were welcoming and extremely helpful. But the highlight was the new chef! She was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Chichi (that is what everyone calls her), mixes local flavors with international touches that will leave you running back to the hotel for all your meals! She personally welcomes all the diners and proceeds to give a description of her ever changing offerings. And I thought New York City had great restaurants! Kudos to Chichi and her staff for making our stay in Antigua not only a cultural experience but a culinary experience as well.
This gem of a hotel is perfect for families, romantic/honeymoons and everything else in between.
We would not think of staying anywhere else in Antigua.
Thank you for the wonderful memories and we look forward to our return.
