This B&B is more like a small inn. Neither the owning couple nor the staff actually live there and noone is present after 8:30pm.
El Paradero is ideally situated within easy walking distance of downtown and several restaurants in Guadeloupe area. The price is competitive.
We stayed there two nights and didn't meet the owners until after breakfast on the day we left and it was never clear who among the employees present was in charge at any one time.
The negatives were:
Our bed was extremely hard, so much so that we did not sleep well. We mentioned this to the owners when we checked out and they said they were considering adding foam pads in the next few months.
The breakfast room is not large enough to accommodate all guests, you may have to wait, as we did, for some to leave before you can eat.. The actual breakfast was not special by B&B standards.
Because of the thick walls, the WIFI is only available in the public rooms but there are no desks available. The best solution is to wait until after breakfast and use the dining room tables. However, these are not cleaned right away and the numerous staff has their breakfast there talking loudly..
Noise from the kitchen is prevalent in the dining room which is distracting.
There are many B&Bs in Santa Fe. Should we visit again, we would probably try to find another one where the owners were more involved in the day to day management. All these problems are fixable.
