We were surprised as how few hotel options there are in this town, and the few there were weren't too appealing. We settled on Hotel Amira even though it is located a ways south of the main section of the malecon, and there were no restuarants close by. The hotel grounds were surrounded by a high wall that included a secure parking area for our truck.
Our room was very plain, cracks in the wall and paint peeling. The air conditioning was completly ineffective. The Wifi was very poor, although we were only 20 feet from the router.
The lobby area was nice, as were the grounds with lots of flowers, and the pool was nice as well. The 3pm checkout was great, allowing lots of time to enjoy the beach a block away without worrying about the clock.
The included breakfast was OK, but I don't understand why in a country that grows coffee, most places serve instant. The staff was helpful, but not particularly friendly. Overall, not worth the price, but not much to choose from.
