Javier and his staff were friendly and accommodating throughout our entire stay. We even went on some of the local tours that they offer which were also great. Rooms and kitchens were large and provided everything we needed. Great location next to the city center and the beautiful Tome Bamba river.

The rooms are all different from each other in layout and size, so if you travel in low season you might want to see them, to choose what best suits your needs. The apartments that face the interior courtyard or the river are better than those... More
