I booked a king bed room for 7 nights. When my wife and I arrived for our stay we were taken to a room across the street from the hotel. It was a dingy apartment style room with a funky kitchenette and a double bed. There was an old air conditioner only in the bed room. When we complained that... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of our South America tour. The staff were happy and helpful, both in the reception, dining area and at the bar. Breakfast had a variety of tropical fruits, cereals, juices, eggs, bacon and tea or coffee. All the breakfasts, lunches and dinners that we ate there were very enjoyable. One night I did... More

The hotel is a cosy nice place just by the main "downtown", a short ten minute walk to the docks. Our room was on the second floor, a quiet corner of the property- very clean and lots of natural light. The staff were very friendly and helpful, offering assistance whenever needed. The restaurant on site was very good also, not... More

This hotel has a super restaurant with great food at good prices. They turned the a/c on just for us as we were the only ones there for lunch! Very friendly staff and s nice atmosphere away from the heat and humidity. Nice gardens outside and very close to the Darwin Center.
