Buffet breakfast was excellent. Nice selection of fresh fruit including watermelon, pineapple, and papaya. Scrambled eggs, sausages, plantains, delicious rice and beans, and even a tortilla making station. Great selection of fresh... More

Breath taking art covers the walls of all three floors plus sculptures throughout. You could spend hours just discovering the art but the service is outstanding as well. Nicest, most pleasant staff. The rooms are beautifully done, the pool area is perfect, the amenities all from Italy. What a treat, I didn't want to leave. I will be back for... More

This is a nice looking small hotel built and managed by non-hoteliers. Everything looks like a hotel but it is not. We arrived really late and were happy the room looked nice. The first thing we wanted to do was to adjust the airconditioner. There was a gadget on the wall that looked JUST like a Thermostat. Sadly it could... More

I had expected great service, but what I encountered in the end was way more than I could have ever asked for. From the spic and span rooms, featuring superior workmanship on tiles, marble and wood, over the nice included breakfast buffet to the super-nice employees of the hotel. I have rarely met people who were so friendly and dedicated... More

Impeccable and large rooms. Fine breakfast. Cozy café and restaurant in premises. Very good service. Excellent choice for business or leisure. Top floor has a large pool and adequate gym. There's a Chilamate tree outside the front door that's adorable and offers dense shade.
