Stayed for two nites here in January,looks a lot better when we booked it than it actually is. The staff are excellent but the building needs serious improvement if it is to be classed a 5star hotel. Rooms are out of date,air con was poor,wifi kept dropping so had to keep logging in. The breakfast was the most disappointing aspect... More

this a very impressive hotel on its size, however seems to be still missing more renovation and housekeeping. The rooms are spacious and on higher floor you can get a nice sunset view on the beach. Breakfast is resoanable.

This hotel offered a lot of promise, but fell short; especially given the price point. Pros: (1) very nice buffet breakfast with a lot of options and swarms of wait staff buzzing about; the main dining room was well lit and spacious; (2) nice location, next to some nice stores and casinos, also across the street from a nice beach...

We booked the hotel via booking a month prior our stay. At the pics it looks far better than in reality, and the facilities are not in a 5 star level, especially not for the price we paid. I have to note that the staff is superb- every each and one of the personnel is trying his best to satisfy... More

The Almirante offers the very best in every aspect of what you seek in a high-end hotel at very affordable prices! The staff are some of the best we've experienced in the US, Europe, and Central & South America. For instance, we needed an added real twin bed in our suite, and they gracefully & professionally re-arranged the living area... More

I do not regret having stayed at this hotel, I enjoyed it. However, I think it is a little overpriced. Fares through booking.com are much lower than those obtained directly from the hotel´s website. I got an MAP plan through booking.com which included breakfast plus one meal (lunch or dinner) which was offered at a fairly reasonable price. However for... More
