The grounds and exterior of the hotel appears to be well maintained. But as soon as we entered our room, a moldy/rusty smell greeted us. We resorted to buying 2 boxes of incense to burn for our entire stay. Also, we immediately noticed our pillow cases were soiled, so we asked the maids to replace them. They did so without hesitation, and were very helpful in providing additional towels and other things we needed. The condition of our room was terrible. It looked and smelled old. Some of the wood panels were peeling of the frame of the closet, the mirror was dirty and scratched, and the doors had gaps big enough for little critters to come in. So, everyday we killed some mosquitoes to prevent getting bitten. At night, we could hear them buzzing around and woke up restless in the morning. The front desk workers were not very friendly and helpful. They were a bit rude, at times, and not very knowledgeable as they provided us with wrong info pertaining to a boat taxi. The breakfast was just okay. Despite our "not so great" experience with the hotel, we did enjoy the spectacular view from our balcony and the location was perfect. Easy access to the beach and Lili's restaurant. Lili's served fresh grilled seafood. We had lobsters, calamari & shrimp....YUM!) Overall, we do not recommend Colonna Park Hotel, but highly recommend the location if you're looking for some beach/water activities at daytime and relaxation at nighttime. Just be sure to book another hotel.
