We stayed here for 1 night this past weekend. A hidden gem. Room was clean and tidy, Great large shower. It has a very nice pool area where you can sit and have some food or drinks... One of the nice things is that it is not in the noisy tourist area. This is a place where you can sit... More

We stayed in the two bedroom suite and it was perfect. Hotel is close to everything, beach, downtown, airport, restaurants, bars and attractions. The staff is super friendly and make you feel welcomed and appreciated. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and delicious. We also had dinner and the food was amazing. Rooms and all areas of the hotel were spotless.... More

I stayed here for one night on business. Lobby and pool area are simple but nice. Room was outdated, furniture old and in bad shape, specially in the bathroom. Cleanliness was dissapointing too, there was an old piece of gum in my bathtub. Area is away from most restaurants (there are a couple nearby), drugstores, grocery stores, etc. i got... More

I was traveling on buisness and stayed for a week. The hotel is between the airport and town, you don;t get into the town traffic if you are driving. I had a nice room with a back door that opened to the pool area. The air conditioner worked but it would have been nice to have been able to turn... More

I'll start by saying that I don't usually write reviews unless something is really off. That's exactly what this hotel was. I walked in, super excited and ready to check-in. The lady at the front desk ignored me and continued talking to her friend. I waited for their conversation to end and for the friend to step aside before I... More

Stayed here on business for 3 night. Rooms are a little dated, but comfortable and clean. Aircon was noisy though. Good nights sleep. Food was ok, but predictable. The kitchen isn't brilliant, sometimes the fries seemed old. Bar staff sometimes pre-occupied amongst themselves. But, everything said this is still a very good hotel, and very convienient for the airport.

We stayed one night at Talk of the Town on our way from Bonaire back to the USA and wanted a place close to the airport and our room was showing signs of age. Paint was peeling, door did not shut tightly and could see light around two edges, bath room fixtures were old and very worn, and overall it... More

Ask for one of the renovated rooms, they are close to the road so some road noise but are much nicer. Hotel is close to the airport so you will hear the planes landing and taking off.Free parking and Wifi.Don't expect luxuries here, go to a more expensive property if you are looking for that.

We ended up not even checking into this hotel. The hotel is some distance from the downtown area - certainly a long walk or taxi ride in the heat. It is also located at the end of the runway of the airport and there was considerable noise from jet engines as they got ready to take off. There may in... More

We just recently stayed at this hotel…..We have 2 small children and when we checked in, there were no towels in our room. We politely asked the front desk for some towels and were refused as they stated, "we are really busy right now do to the hotel fully booked, don't expect towels tonight…maybe tomorrow." We received towels next day….wow... More
