As you can see by my profile, I usually give glowing reviews. However I feel compelled to write about my negative experience at El Rey Patricio. Perhaps people thinking about staying there will gather from the description but this is a very basic place. Very small rooms. Yes there is an ocean view - from outside your room. Not from sitting inside your room so beware. Our room had no air-conditioning and no windows. To say it was hot and muggy is an understatement. And the bathroom is NOT separate. There is a curtain separating the bathroom from the (small) area where the bed is so you should know any rooming companions well. ha! Also, my friend was sick so we needed to move to a place that had air (or a window!) and the manager was not happy at all. She just didn't seem to understand why a windowless room lacking air conditioning and without a private bathroom would not be the best place for a person experiencing major stomach issues and fever. This place is far from town and any other amenities. But, if you want an ocean view from outside your tiny windowless room and to be covered by dust looking at it from the street below, then stay here.
