Rooms smell terrible and have old furniture. Lobby is antique. Hotel staff is very rude and not helpful. Cleaning staff would start making noises at 6AM daily and were loud. Shower in bathroom had cold water 2 out of the 3 nights we stayed there. Wi-fi doesn't work. All in all, a horrible stay - wouldn't recommend this property to... More

Stayed for one night, ended up there because of the reasonable price. The room was ok: nice bed, so-so bathroom (no door at shower means wet & slippery floor. We didn't try the breakfast because of the cost: didn't seem to be worthwhile. The big surprise came at about 11PM, when the power went out and the room went black.... More

The Bad, - Wifi only in lobby. - first they will rip you off with the room, there is no difference between a Superior room and a... More

Cozy hotel, refurbished, spacious room, clean, quiet. Tranquil neighbourhood, nice bucolic atmosphere. Only the shower wansnt flowing strong enough, and not very hot, and the coffee at breakfast was not good, but regardless of that, Id recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for a week in january. The place is nice but looks bad because is not clean enough and the staff service is poor. Near from the beach I find the location ideal but you need the car to move in the night . Breakfast costs 10 dolars and is really awful !

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in January 2012 + Well located between Punta and La Barra + Reasonably good breakfast + Kitchen personal is very good + Large lounge area downstairs + Nice Pool (albeit a bit dirty for U.S. standards) - Unhelpful and unfriendly reception/front desk (whatever you ask, the answer will be "no we can't...

I went to Punta in New Years, when the hotel are really expensive, so we tried to go to a simple hotel to don't spend too much. That was what we got. Some rooms are new and other ones are really old (the one that I took). The maintenance of the hotel are really bad, windows are broken and pool... More

Great place, a little far from anything really. I rented a scooter for 24hours at 40$ which made the difference. The rooms was really nice and clean. Someone was complaining about a little window in one of the comments, it's a big enough window. They were very accommodating as we wanted to stay an extra night at our rate. Also... More

Great value and not a bad hotel given that it seems quite a bit older than surrounding buildings. However the place is seriously let down by the absolutely abysmal lack of any hint of Customer Service by the reception staff - service with a scowl more like. Given that it is just under 3 miles away from the main bus... More

I have stayed here several times. Other than January, when everything is overpriced, this place is great. In a fairly quiet area and close to the beach. Staff is great and I would be happy to return again.
