Casa Rosal is truly amazing if you are looking for one of the few very high end establishments within Antigua.
Everything about this place was elegant...from the rooms to the architecture to the facilities. The staff was wonderful and was available for any and all of my needs.
The rooms...beautiful. Luxury bedding, beautiful wood and touches throughout.
If you are looking for a high-end establishment...you've found a winner.
Since my stay was very activity driven unfortunately some of the elegance wasn't able to be fully appreciated. I was out and about most of the day using the hotel as an evening retreat. Still, after a long day on my feet, I fully appreciated a comfortable bed in a town where it seems the average mattress has been used for 20+ years.
Bathrooms were clean albeit small. Fixtures new and sufficient for a hot shower/bath.
Seriously though...after a long day touring...it was all about the comfortable poster bed with luxury linens and "like home" pillows!
Breakfast was great, service as you expect from this type of establishment. I didn't have the opportunity to enjoy lunch or dinner at the establishment, but I'm sure it was also up to par.
Casa Rosal was definitely more expensive than other options, but as long as this isn't an issue for you and/or you are going to use all of the available facilities...you won't be disappointed.
If you are just looking for somewhere to bed down and are on a budget...it may be overkill for you.
Everything was perfect. No complaints whatsoever. In fact, Rosal exceeded my expectations. In town for a wedding? Perfect spot for you! Anything you need while there (laundry/tour booked/directions)...just ask. Everyone friendly and more than willing to oblige.
One last thing, security was phenomenal. I felt VERY safe staying at Rosal. Security went as far as to keep track of when you leave/arrive just to make sure everyone was accounted for day or night. I have no doubt that if they were worried about me a search party would be sent :)
