From the moment we arrived at Audacia it was really wonderful. Service was so personal and friendly without being too much and our room was just gorgeous. We had one of the surperior deluxe rooms which was just amazing - and so comfortable. It was our honeymoon so we were greeted by rose petals and chocolates on the bed, and a wonderful bottle of red wine which we greatly enjoyed. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay pleasant, and the only thing I regret was sleeping through breakfast on our first day as it was excellent when we finally had it!! The outside jacuzzi bath was ideal, and it was really nice that there was both an indoor and an outdoor shower.
We ate at the restaurant on the first night and can really recommend the food. And it's lovely to sit out looking at the lights of the city from the bar. We were also given very good advice on what to do and where to eat in the city.
The only negative thing I can add is unfortunately that when we were paying our bill there was a rather racist man sitting in the office and saying inappropriate things about the "indigenous people" (his words, not mine). This was very unpleasant and made us very uncomfortable, and it really soured our final moments at the hotel. Hopefully he was just a contractor and has been disciplined or fired, as all the other staff members were fantastic and we had felt encouraged about how all members of staff seemed to be on an equal footing, regardless of colour.
