Cons: The bedroom was fairly run down. The sheets were thin, the towels had seen better days.
Pros: Clean and quiet at night. The pool entirely made up for whatever the bedroom was lacking. Hot shower.
My husband and I prolonged our trips to spend 2 days splashing in the pool. A few days in cold La Paz, then eaten by mosquitos in the jungle - it was extremely pleasant to arrive at this hotel and enjoy the cool water and relax in the sun.
Only the rooms on one side of the pool seemed to be in use. The other side had no front walls, and we got the impression that they were doing construction work of some sort (remodelling perhaps?). The restaurant was not open for dinner, but we did enjoy a nice breakfast. On our day of departure we had to leave before breakfast, but the hotel was nice and prepared a bag with some juice, fruit, crackers and yoghurt that we could have at the airport.
We had good service, and enjoyed our stay here - and highly recommend the pool :)
