Everyone here is so friendly yet professional. Leonardo at concierge and the rest of the staff were so nice. The breakfast buffet was fabulous, they had something for everyone. The pool, although small, was perfect for this hotel. The rooms were clean and had everything you need. Absolutely wonderful. Muchas gracias!

Very good service, excellent breakfast and cool parties in the pool, the location is really good in a central and safe place, close to a beautiful park, the room is not fancy but it's good enough, I totally recommend it.
