The moment I stepped into the atmospheric old building, I was in love with it. My room was very basic but the price was also basic. Brightly painted and clean. Cold water showers in the old building and a fan. It was enough. The hotel has a pool and interesting restaurant. There are other restaurants within a short walk. The staff at the Hotel del Norte was wonderful when I was there.
I had a sea view, which was lovely. Except the sea front park is a loud, late night teen hang out- but that isn't the hotel's fault.
I met wonderful people staying at this hotel. It attracts artistic people. I am told it once was the home away from home for the people filming Tarzan movies decades ago. After dinner I exchanged great life stories with other guests who sat on the big veranda/hallway. I couldn't ask for much better.
