We reserved an ocean view room. Looking at the hotel from the street, it was hard to imagine that any of the rooms would have an ocean view. The hotel is one block from the beach, and there are tall buildings between the Tryp Orly and the ocean. It turns out that you could see the ocean from our room, but you had to stand close to the window and look out to the right. Looking straight out the window afforded a view of the southwest section of town.
The room had a private bath. Spacious accomodations with a nice large bathtub and modern shower fixtures. The room interior was otherwise a bit worn and dated, but clean and quite comfortable. The bed was an actual king-sized bed, not two beds pushed together as found in many European hotels. The room seemed more like an American hotel room than a European hotel room. Amenities included the use of robes and slippers - a nice touch.
Front desk service was good. One of the desk clerks has taken it upon himself to prepare a list of his recommended bars and restaurants. I suppose he gets questions so frequently that it just made sense to compile the list, which he hands out to guests. We tried a few of his suggested spots, and all were good.
It is an easy walk from the hotel to the beach, the Centro district and Old Town.
We were there during the shoulder season, and the hotel and town were fairly quiet. It rained during our stay, which was disappointing, as we were looking forward to some beach time.
We bought a package that included breakfast. At first, we thought we'd just skip the hotel's breakfast and dine at one of the fine eateries in town. But after perusing the hotel's breakfast buffet, we decided to eat there. In a town noted for its food, the hotel breakfast did not disappoint. There were a variety of local specialty meats, cheeses and fresh fruit. All very good - a pleasant surprise.
