8/10 Very good

The hotel was nice only downside they didnt have much for us to eat, we are plant based. Besides that everyone was nice and the service was good. I liked the hot springs pool and my chiro massage was nice at the spa.

2/10 Poor

Never again
My friend chose this hotel specifically for the thermal spa at Santa Teresita. It directs you to kawilal but everything is additional and added on. My friend didn’t read the previous reviews either or else we would’ve avoided this at all costs. Restaurant options weren’t great. The hotel is in the middle of a toxic industrial area that looks like a slum. There is NO air conditioning in the room and the room is super humid. The road noise is deafening and noise from the town is deafening. The website says services in English and Spanish - they’re only in Spanish. This was frustrating because I don’t get paid to be a translator and I don’t want to have to act as a go between. There’s no information about services or where. The maps are confusing. One positive thing is the room was clean but whatever they use to clean the floor causes a film that I almost slid and fell on three times. Even more dangerous when getting out of the shower. The restaurant staff was nice. ZERO communication that while breakfast is included YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR DRINKS WITH YOUR BREAKFAST. Why not be upfront about this? Positive note, I asked for express laundry service and it came back quick for a good price. I’ll never stay here again. We opted to lose the night stay and drive back to antigua in traffic to spend the evening there where it was much quieter and comfortable…

The hotel is located in a beautiful area, ringed by mountains. The landscaping they did was beautfiul. Our room was large and lovely with a private balcony to enjoy the views. The restaurant provided lots of space between guests so felt COVID-safe. Had wonderfu massages. Would highly recommend.

Hotel room and all the property very clean, very professional and friendly staff, their food menu is good for a person that stays for one or two days the food is delicious but there is no much variety in the menu if you stay for more than 2 days in the hotel. I will recommend this place i will come back soon, the Sauna and massage are excellent.

Great service, although the facilities were semi-closed because of the National coronavirus curfew they went about and beyond to take care of me. The facilities are gorgeous and hope to come back once all the facilities are open.
