Our room was clean, comfortable and airy. Very relaxing and surrounded by gardens, we were fortunate enough to see a sloth in the tree next door – very exciting!!
The hotel staff were lovely, the room was clean and the breakfast was cheap and adequate. There is a laundry service and free computers in the lobby. There was a tv in the room but ours didn’t work well (although that’s not why you’re there so it didn’t matter) and it got quite cold in the mountains. Our hot water was fine, although it took quite a while to warm up.
It’s about a ten minute walk into town where there's a range of food places and a supermarket. Be prepared for a hilly (and at night very dark) walk between the hotel and town. If you have any issues with a steep walk, find something else (although most of the area is hilly so that could be a problem) & pack a small torch.
We didn’t have any issues with payment / reservations but as we were on a GAdventures tour, this was all taken care of for us.
Overall - I would stay there again.
