Great location...it's all about out n about for sightseeing. It's pointless to not live around the town center..Fabio at the front desk is kind and helpful. Will definitely stay here in the future. Great evening live music in the restaurant next door.

Although not the most upscale hotel, the room is clean and spacious. WiFi is at times spotty but adequate. Breakfast was included but nothing to brag about. However, dinner with the paid menu was unexpected good. Located at one end of "downtown", it is accessible to everything yet away from the noise of the crowd.

Really liked this place, good location easy walking to everywhere. The local dogs roam around town and a very sweet little puppy liked to come and sit with us at the hotel. There is a restaurant on site with friendly staff and good food

Stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of a Sth America tour with Tucan Travel, so can't comment on its value for money. The hotel's appearance was very complementary with the rest of the town. Our room was quite small but, considering that we hardly spent any time in it - apart from sleeping - it was more...

The rooms are very small and spartan and worth no more than half the $150 US we paid over New Years weekend. Maybe it was the holiday that made the price so out of scale with the accommodation. The setting is nice, and convenient to all services. Restaurant was good for dinner and breakfast. Day staff was not very responsive...

We have travelled the world over the years and have learnt that one must never expect too much of a hotel in a very small town in the middle of the desert. But the Don Raul did not come near those limited expectation. The room was tiny, almost impossible to move round the bed and having 2 cases open at...

This hotel was a surprise when you first arrive as it fits with the town. The room was ok and for breakfast you had to select from a set menu which was not the best for vegetarians. There was a bar that didn't appear to be open.

We had a good room with a nice clean bathroom. There are some nice relaxing outdoor areas. Breakfast was great. Location was good - towards the edge of the main area but everything is in walking distance.

Stayed three nights, We thoroughly enjoyed it but we were actually quite relieved to be then moving on... two main reasons, one being the cramped rooms and the other being the on/off hot water situation. It is a "finca" or hacienda style with the plain, if rather drab , adobe mud colouring throughout, due to many of the individual room...

Best thing about this hotel is its proximity to the town centre without being right in it. Next good thing is the breakfasts are a nice change from those I've been having in the more northern South American countries. Choice of three set menu options which are all large and tasty. Disadvantages of the hotel are that the rooms are...
