I'm happy with service of the hotel. The rooms are big enough, confortable, clean and the best rate of those hotel categories. They have many amenities and places close to the hotel like the Aquarium, the sea port, the marine Headquarter and a tourist way with many stores and restaurants.

The property is quite old and needs urgent remodelling. From the moment you walk in the lobby you feel in another era. The people at the reception were nice. They provide you with extra towels for the pool and beach. The room was old and the beds hard. The bathroom was OK. The safety deposit box didn't work. The view... More

I made the mistake of trusting the reviews on a 3rd party hotel comparison/booking site which were pretty good. Oh dear - I don't know where those people stayed but I don't think it was here. This hotel is awful. The rooms are so old and decrepit. We had booked a standard double and it was like a prison cell... More

I made my reservations on-line and the fare was kind of fare, however when we got there surpraisly the rate changed. I spoke with Judith Amaro who by the way is the only person that can access your reservation on line and... More

They promised us adjoining rooms (confirmed in writing). The rooms were not close to each other. We arrived at night and could not go anywhere else. They promised to correct it. We stayed 4 nights but they never corrected it. We later found out that they were available, but would not give them to us. We paid extra for SEAVIEW... More

We are a family of 2 adults and 1 child (age 2) who visited Veracruz on route to the Yucatan from Mexico City. We chose this hotel as it was convenientley located for the Aquarium and local restaurants. When we arrived the staff were unhelpful when there was a problem with our reservation. We finally got to our room which... More

I stayed at this hotel in Feb. 2003 and made a secure reservation online 3 months prior for 2 nights. I arrived about 10:00pm and was greeted by a surly staff who would not honor my reservation. After much back and forth they gave me a room for 1 night at double the price. The room was shabby and moldy.... More
