Cosy and nice property with clean rooms, and great location in the heart of the Colonial City. It was also peaceful so we could have a rest after a trip. Breakfast was ok and service in general was descent so overall it is a pleasant spot to stay.

This resort is beautiful, grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the room was nice, food is not as good as I expected it, the desserts also were so bland and didn’t have much flavor. We met an awesome entertainment guy Alexander (black coffee) he is so funny and made our vacation very fun, he was always coming up to us and asking how our vacation is so far, he is very talented, can sing, and dance. Also Ivanesa was one of our favorite waitresses, she is so bubbly, and fun and made our dinner at the Italian so special. Also Elizabeth was so sweet, she was always bringing us drinks at the beach, Maritza was cool, did a little photoshoot for us on the beach!!!

I can't say that this place is all bad--it definitely has good location, it feels safe, it was clean, and the breakfast was excellent. The value was good. And I'd be willing to live with the flooding shower, the non-flushing toilet, the bathroom door that doesn't close, the lack of windows, and the safe with no lock in it; again, $77/nt. But what was not acceptable was that they did not give us the room they promised; we have two 6-foot kids, and I wanted us all to stay in the same room. I reserved a room with a queen and two bunk twins. I confirmed this reservation with a phone call AND an email with the hotel itself; no problem! But when I got there (at 3p), there was only a room with two just-smaller-than-double beds. I showed them the reservation, and the email they wrote, and they shrugged. None of the four of us were able to sleep--we did not fit on the beds! By then, there were no other rooms available, and we actually rented a second room across the street for our second night (at a tremendously creepier but much more spacious place). Reading the previous reviews, it seems that cases of un-honored reservations happens frequently at the HCC--we actually saw them sending customers to other hotels due to overbooking while we were there. So, I guess the question is--do you feel like rolling the dice, and seeing if they will be able to honor the reservation you made?

Hi Mr. Henry, We strongly regret that you had this experience on our property. It is not the custom of the Hodelpa team to hear such comments. Again I apologize for the inconvenience. I know that our associates do everything possible to serve you and give their best. It is good to know and keep in mind that the requests made in the reservations are subject to availability. I hope you can give us the opportunity to change that situation by visiting us again and serving you as we know how to do it. Happy rest of the day Sincerely, Yuribell Chez General Manager
