“An enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights and found the hotel very comfortable. I was rather worried to begin with as our room was on the front and I thought it might be noisy at night but there were no problems and I enjoyed looking out onto life in the square opposite. The location is next to an very interesting and extensive museum and right in the centre of town so convenient for shopping. Rooms were well equipped and very clean. We particularly enjoyed our pisco sours in the evening. We ate in the restaurant, the food was good with large portions and there was music and dancing in the evening to entertain us. The garden area with its pretty outside pool is quite a surprise in this central location. There is also a good indoor pool and a gym. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and it is a good base for visiting the nearby vineyards.

Located in the center of the town, next to the museum and casino. Great restaurant although a little pricey. Free wi-fi. Walking distance to all there is to see in Santa Cruz. We will stay here again.

With just a day or two to relax, it was truly a gift to have the opportunity to stay at this beautiful hotel! As a vegetarian, I had no problem filling my plate with healthy options at breakfast or finding other snacks throughout the day. The location is rather convenient so members of my group could easily walk across the street to the local market or around the corner for some excitement at the casino. I hope to have the chance to have a vacation there one day!

Confortable hotel, close to Santa Cruz main street and an excellent museum.
The hotel does not have enough parking places, so if you're driving, try to arrive early! The rooms are nice, clean and big. There are some problems regarding noise isolation between rooms.

We were on a tour, so I'm not sure how much the room was, but it was quite charming, the food was good and the service also. The outdoor area is very pretty, and you are close to shopping and can see a lot of locals: children and mothers and young lovers in the park across the street and the omnipresent "chile dogs". The dogs are everywhere but surprisingly calm, nothing to be concerned about. There is a great little restaurant on the square, just to your right as you leave the hotel, you can see the door, which enters into a garden room. Best omelet I everh had in my life. No english at this place but the menu was readable and the nice waiter worked hard to please.

Room Tip: Our room looked out onto the street and the jardin, which we enjoyed, but rooms to the back of the h...

I just spent a weekend at the hotel with friends and we found the rooms very comfortable and the location ideal. The food is fine, although we only had breakfast and sandwiches at the pool. Friendly and helpful service, but it was a busy weekend in mid-summer, and the parking was a problem. Basically, the hotel has one entrance which is shared by cars and pedestrians who have to walk down to the back of the property to get to the new wing where our rooms were and the casino. Both nights the parking attendants had to park the car at a parking place outside the hotel, and the one time we left it on the premises it was hard to get out to the street because the driveway was crowded with parked cars, moving cars and pedestrians. I think they should sort this out, because the hotel is not inexpensive and you don´t expect this kind of obstacle course every time you go in and out in the car.

Room Tip: The rooms in the new wing in back (over the casino) are probably quieter than the ones in the old bu...
