Had one night here on a group tour. Small tidy room looking onto garden with hammock and some seating. In the middle of a street parallel to the promenade, so hany for the beach and nearby cafes and bars. Adequate breakfast. Free wifi and water.

Would give 0 stars if I could. Booked a different hotel on desperagar.com (never use this site- horrible/nonexistent service) and was switched to this one. Despite several emails with Alvaro (the manager) confirming our room, when we arrived we were told we did not have a room there and it was not their problem! Alvaro tried to tell me he... More

Hotel is located on the main street with everything around that you need. Rooms are in the back of the building and it was very quite. Room was clean and we felt safe at all time. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very nice garden with hammock and chairs to relax. On the other side of the road you find Casa... More

My wife and I stayed at Casa Colonial for 3 days in November 2014. The rooms we basic, but clean and secure. It has a large open air courtyard, which was nice and relatively quiet. Breakfasts were good, the staff wasn't terribly friendly, but they would help when asked. There are probably better value places, but if you're looking for... More

Good value hotel that includes a Nica style breakfast (really good scrambled eggs). Basic rooms but good A/C and clean. Lovely garden that is an oasis hidden away from the busy street. Would recommend.

We were recommended to this place by another hotel where we had previously stayed. Honestly, we weren't impressed by the customer service, they were out of soap, and there was only wifi in the lobby. The bathroom was very small but it did have hot water (at times too hot), air conditioning, and breakfast included. All in all you won't... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights. Six people in total. Room rate we got was very good. Rooms are quite basic , but they are clean and have air on. Gardens were really nice. It is a quiet, friendly hotel. A portion of the profits also go to charity is says in the reception. No complaints and can... More

The hotel is two blocks from the beach. It was safe and somewhat quiet. The three single beds in the little room left 10 inches between the beds. Yeah, the TV worked and the A/C blew cold. Bathroom was also small. Why don't these places install more hooks or shelves in the bathroom for travelers? Breakfast was quaint and satisfactory.
