Reviewed 26 July 2016

I wouldn't stay here again, although the price was good for a one night stay before leaving for the airport, the packed early breakfast that we were promised never materialised. The staff were not able to resolve this which was disappointing seeing as we paid for it. There are better choices nearer the airport in better locations.

This is by far the best experience we have had a hotel in Central America. The rooms were nice the hotel was excellent and had a great restaurant. Everything was at a very reasonable price. The restaurant was by far the best yet. The chef was very good. There was also a small deli/bakery attached to the hotel.

Rm #14 - very nice, clean, spacious bathroom and walk in shower. A little noisy due to outside wall right on walkway. Quite times posted and observed! The common space, livingrooms, pool decks was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was included and delish. Bed was a little too soft and the pillows were way too soft!

Rooms are small, but very clean. Air conditioning worked very well, thought the noise from the neighbor's air conditioning can be easily heard. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful - including the front desk and the cleaning staff. Breakfast is included, and is delicious. Shower is good. The next door Market place is great for a quick meal to...

We only stayed for about 7 hours total. They picked us up from the airport after our flight got delayed until 1:30am. Then brought us to our shuttle the next day at 9. Wonderful breakfast, clean simple rooms, and great service.
