It is a nice hotel, pretty pool and enormous rooms, so comfortable. You can still tell that the best time of the place was in other time, but it has not loose all the charm. Between the casino, the bar and the pool you will feel just fine in the tropics. Nothing very luxurious but pretty enough. The room was... More

The rooms were clean and well equipped. The only thing missing was a coffee pot. While this is a beautiful hotel, its strength are its employees.

Stayed for only one night, but very happy with my stay. Staff is very courteous and spoke very good english, the rooms are very clean and modern and the breakfast buffet is a nice addition. On the downside, the wifi didn't work all that well in the room (be sure you ask for your username and password). Overall, I would... More

I chose a different hotel then got email from a friend telling me about the Continental Hotel. We checked it out and moved to it. I hadn't chosen it originally because of the casino. But while staying there I never even had a sense that there was a casino. We moved to the Continental Hotel largely because of the kudos... More

We didn't know much about the hotel before our arrival, and booking the room turned out to be a great decision. The Continental has old world charm, but it's been renovated so the rooms are comfortable and equipped with safes, although our bathroom did not have a tub (spacious shower though). We also had the minibar cleared out so we... More
