We spent 10 days at this hotel and we were very well treated. The rooms are basic but functional and clean. the TV and air condition were in good working order, and we had WiFi which allowed us to be in contact with family. The location of the hotel is great since there are many restaurants within walking distance. The... More

Read a few of the other reviews and I couldn't disagree more. We spent 7 days at the hotel and I found the staff to be extremely helpful. The rooms were not fancy, but clean, air-conditioned, good wakeup service so we could catch our 6AM tours, view of the Town Plaza (Our room) cable TV and right on the town... More

To begin with, they hadn't registered our reservation when we arrived and we know of more people who've had the same problem here. The staff were unhelpful, specially because they don't seem to have any power of decision but only take orders from people above who never show. Very overpriced (M$900 for an room that is in urgent renovation need),... More

I reserved a room on this hotel's website and received a confirmation e-mail, which stated that they would be in contact with me to confirm the reservation. Never heard from them, so I called the hotel to confirm. They said they had no record of my reservation, even when I gave the confirmation number from the e-mail. They said that... More

If you be need somewhere to feel at home between trips to the jungle or the ruins or are waiting for a bus, this is the place. It's a little more than a basic hotel (500 pesos- about £25) BUT it i totally worth it. The staff are extremely helpful and the pool is great. OK, the shower could do... More

This equates to roughly $450-475 pesos. Check in was painless, however no one spoke English in the entire hotel. Rooms - large, old, dirty, very very outdated, we... More
