Everything was average. Room decor, cleanliness, staff, ect.. It was sufficient accomodation for our party of two adults and four children. Great Location. You get what you pay for. No complaints. Would stay again.

Check-in is not available until 3pm. Phoned the day before and asked for an earlier check-in. Arrived at 2.30. Most places would have your room ready by then but not this place. Not for anyone! No communication or organization with housekeeping whatsoever. They have a sauna by the pool that nobody uses but the pool is not heated at all.... More

Place was pretty gross. It smelled of air freshener outside as if they were masking a smell. The smell was gross inside the room. I wasn't even comfortable sleeping under the covers. The entrance door was paper thin so you feel no sense of security with outside room access. Had to pay for internet.

A very nice place in a terrific location but the building is very very very tired and could do with a lot of work. Firstly we stayed on the second floor, there is no elevator here and all the stairs r extremely steep I have arthritis and that made navigating them extremely hard. The rooms decor is in bad need...

El Lago is in a fantastic location at The Entrance. So handy to everything. The staff we encountered were all pleasant and helpful. The living/sleeping area of the room was clean and tastefully decorated. The bathrooms and exterior of the hotel are very run down and not attractive. Based on all of this I would still return to El Lago... More

Make no mistake - this is NOT the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong by any stretch of the imagination, nor does it pretend to be. It is as it is, and as it is described in its advertisements - which in my view is a plus. In terms of location, excellent value for money and a good old fashioned Aussie... More

I stayed 1 night. The tarriff was excellent and included a continental breakfast which was much better than average.. The room was clean and quiet with a good view of the pool and the lake across the road. Location is also terrific easy walking distance to the main street of The Entrance, restaurants etc. Terrific value we will be visiting... More

I stayed 2 nights with my husband and 2yr old child in villa no.11. It was in desperate need of a renovation but it had what I needed, kettle, toaster, bath for baby, fridge, tv etc. The bed was comfy and the location was beautiful & quiet. Due to the cheap rates it unfortunately attracts "riff raff". We heard a... More
