“Great location but noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

We stayed here for 6 nights on a fishing trip since it is right across the street from where the fishing boats are docked. That is the main reason for staying here. We had one of the best rooms(#16) on the fourth floor up 6 flights of stairs with no elevator. Very tiring after a few days. The week we were there was party week and there was loud music playing in the amphitheatre nearby every night until 1, 2 and even until 5 in the morning! Not very good if you are getting up early for fishing! The rooms were cleaned every day but the cleanliness around the hotel was generally lacking(dog poop on the sidewalk to the rooms-yuck!)
The breakfast was ok but the same every day, eggs, toast fruit. The food in the restaurant was good but the service is terribly slow. That's alright some nights but again got tiring after a few days.
I would only recommend this hotel if you want to be near the dock or don't mind a lot of noise.

Not a lot to choose from in San Cristóbol. It's not the Ritz, but it is serviceable. Restaurant is decent. As long as you just go to the room to take a shower and sleep, you'll be fine. Just don't expect to spend lots of time there. The gym is noisy! Shower was a little goofy, but it worked.

Absolutely worst experience! Dirty rooms (checked out 4 available rooms), flimsy walls with every sound coming in. Bathroom, with a faucet and toilet paper holder falling off the wall. Shower working only once in a while. Ants in the bathroom. Dirty bedding. Fitness center in the building with loud music until late hours. Party every night nearby until 3 am, impossible to sleep. Horrible coffee.

The location of the hotel was great, right on the water in the town. The bedrooms were big and cutely decorated but the bathroom was bad. Our shower dripped constantly, water leaked outside the shower through the ground and there was mildew buildup in the shower and surrounding area. The walls are paper thin and we could hear everyone's conversations in the rooms adjacent to ours.

Family trip with REI and Ecuador Travel Group put us up here. Very disappointing, rooms very small, noisy since they were above the gym (clanging from 6pm to 10pm). Restaurant food was OK. Front desk personnel were polite. Pool cold
Location is convenient

My family and I stayed here in July....we had two rooms.....one regular and the other was the large suite on top (4th floor).....both worked well for us.....the suite had large windows all around and a huge deck with ocean views.....leaving the doors/windows open gave us cool breezes and the sounds of the ocean....plus the perfect spot to watch the sunsets.....the location of the hotel is good....right on the waterfront.....in the middle of things.....walking distance to everything......and lots of activity to watch from our balcony....the food in the restaurant was good....I liked having the gym in the hotel....we were here for 9 nights.....so we got a good feel for things.....as others have said....it's not a Marriott.....it does have it's little problems.....but not unlike almost any other hotel in the area.....remember where you are and don't let the little things ruin your stay.

Basic but good for a tropical island. Not a Hilton or Marriott but all of the basic necessities. Food good and very fairly priced. Wifi works better in some rooms than others. Location excellent. Enjoyed stay very much!
