We stay here every year and we are never let down. From the room to the waiters to the cooks to the receptionist, they are all Awesome. We consider them friends and not workers. :). Always a Good Morning or Hola, everyone always asks if we need help with anything. They are truly a GREAT GROUP OF WORKERS THERE. I... More

They did not have my upper floor online room request but switched me immediately. The room smelled musky inspite of A/C. Comfy king size bed which takes up the entire room and crowds out the table and chairs. Updated tiled shower. Loved the free morning espresso in the Lobby, received great room service and front office service with excellent recommendations... More

Casa Dona Susana met our expectations but overall the rooms were just a... More

Love the staff, location, rooftop deck, the great staff at the restaurant in their other property which is very close. We've stayed here 3 times and will go back again. Elizabeth is wonderful at the front desk. The best part is the pool which is in full sun all day and they don't allow children.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and varied durations. Yes, great location and adult only is a plus. The property has so much potential. The rooms are musty, but if you run the a/c that issue is resolved. Not sure who or why someone thought it would be a good idea to install industrial multi roll toilet tissue... More

This hotel is a great place for adults who are looking for peace and quiet as well as convenient dining and perhaps a beach experience with good service. Two positive points about the hotel itself are the roof top adult only pool and free coffee in the lobby in the morning. The coffee is self- served in a techie stainless... More

Well, let me start out with how disappointed I am with Casa Dona Susanna (CDS). While we were there, during the workweek, the hotel was under major renovation replacing all the atrium facing windows to the rooms and other work to the hotel. Based upon their daily progress, I would guess that the renovation has been going on for some... More

As the title says, location is the only good thing at this hotel. First - the service: or should I say lack of service. Upon arrival, they were not very friendly, told me there was a fridge in the room, which there was not, and couldn't figure out how to get me connected to Wifi - I had to figure... More
