Nice hotel, good spot only a couple of blocks from the malecon/main street. A lot of little minimarts around it as well. Pool was well maintained as was the dining area. Breakfast was fresh and made to order. Thought though the portion was funny...they ask how you would like your egg.....literally as it was only one egg! We ended up... More

I was fortunate enough to be offered the presidential suite here which I have to say was very good when all said and done. AC machine worked well and quietly as did the fridge, with a basic but good selection of drinks including the Ecuadorian beer Pilsener, very welcome indeed I might add. I only stayed here for one night... More

I went with my family in February. We were a big gropu (19 in total - 9 children). This hotel was the best for the kids because of the nice pool. The rooms are big, brand new, with nice tv and very functional air conditioner. The hotel is not big so you feel in a nice - private zone. The... More

The rooms were large, and fairly plain, with two queen sized beds and a bathroom. It was the beginning of a tour and some of those in other rooms reported that they did not have hot water for their showers. Also, I do not know the price of the rooms, since it was included in my tour. It was in... More

For $135 in a double room I expected more the place is súper neat and clean. The common areas comfortable.The breakfast was great. AC and TV worked great and pillows comfortable. The pool clean but too cold and the jacuzzi was never warm... If I'm paying this much I expect to have a warm hot tub at least after mid... More

I'd read reviews before I stayed here and was a bit worried. When I hear "great budget hotel" I start to worry whose definition of "budget" we're going by. But the place was wonderful. Impeccably clean, great location for walking to the pier and restaurants, and the breakfast was served family style and was simple but great. I definitely would... More

Basic ensuite rooms on a single level spread around an entrance way decorated with pretty plants. The open dining area was at the far end and served the normal fruit and bread fare with scrambled eggs one morning, and drinking water is available from a big container. The free wifi was too slow and I was unable to connect. Convenient... More

Odd place - huge rooms with unused space (a chair/couch would be nice). Clean, all tile throughout with no rugs, even in the bathroom - there was a plastic green bath mat and when the shower leaked we did ask for more towels and the reception gave us more and a bath mat - don't know why we had to...

This hotel close to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno waterfront, is a good budget place to stay. The rooms are large and well equipped, there's a pool and a Jacuzzi and the breakfast is good. There's free wifi connection and free drinkable water to fill your bottle.

I stayed here for two nights in January. The room was basic but clean and thankfully I did not see any Harry Potter-style spiders as noted by another reviewer. The Wifi worked in my room most of the time but there were outages. There are apparently a large group of roosters housed adjacent to the hotel. The roosters are very... More
