I gave this 3 stars but really I would give the rooms 2 stars and the hotel grounds a 4. So I averaged it.
Stayed here and of the 3 rooms our party had the problems were:
Beds were more like cots. Thin, hard mattress on a metal frame.
Two sheets had 'pills' and would not stay on the mattress.
One room A/C units worked poorly.
One room had no hot water.
No place to sit other than the bed.
No shelves other than the ones inside closet.
One safe was broken.
As far as the hotel grounds, they were spectacular. Rooms had beautiful balconys with tables and chairs to sit and enjoy the trees/flowers/birds. Please note: lots of steps on brick walkways, definitely not for anyone with mobility issues.
We found a nice trail leading down into the jungle behind the hotel. Very lovely with a couple of swinging bridges and lots of assorted mosaic work that someone made. Would have been a highlight if not for the slight sewage smell near the bottom of the ravine.
