Don’t let the pics fool you.
Don’t let the pictures fool you; the place looks run down, there are stains on the walls, missing paint, chipped doors, broken furniture, dirty shower, etc. The breakfast is ridiculously basic. We had booked an executive room (with a balcony) and we got a regular room. They refused to move it to another room (apparently they overbooked their executives?) but also refused to refund us the price difference. Also the neighborhood is really dodgy the minute it gets dark. Stay away.

Very nice stay
Everyone was very nice, helped me up the stairs with my bag. Also, spoke English which was good for me. Near the main street and Malecon, so lots to eat! I felt safe walking around alone. They even made me an early breakfast, and brought it to my room, before my early flight. Also called a taxi to the airport for me. And the room was nice, had everything I needed, including A/C, internet and hot water!

It was very nice, especially after being remodeled. Comfortable and everyone there was very kind and accommodating. We had a problem with our shower drain that first night and after informing them they fixed it right away. They were also knowledgeable of the area, so if it is your first time there they can definitely tell you the best places to go.
