We were actually very disappointed by this hotel. We had much higher expectations from the reviews. First, we got dropped off by a private water taxi and were told how to turn (the hotel's map is worthless). Needless to say, it started to pour and we were walking in the wrong direction. No one knew where the hotel was. We were dragging our bags all over in the rain. Signs would help. Not a great start. To say the rooms are small is an understatement. And, it was SO hot in the room, we needed to open the windows. Unfortunately, our rooms opened over a popular bar and the noise level all night was incredible. The air conditioning hadn't been turned on yet for the season, so sleeping was a nightmare--hot and noisy. The desk clerk didn't know that the A/C wasn't on yet. They controlled the temp at the desk, and he kept telling us it was turned down, but he in fact turned on the heat in an already hot room. Dying. Finding our way back to the hotel nightly was always an adventure. At least we laughed. Once, we were one courtyard away and the policia we asked didn't even know where it was! To add to fun, the hotel definitely has bedbugs. We woke up the first day with little welts, the second day with more, and the third day we were miserable. On the bright side--lovely breakfast and sitting area. They gave us Venetian glass hearts for the misery we sustained. So, I have a keepsake of my least favorite vacation hotel ever.
