Spacious rooms and friendly staff. The housekeepers went above and beyond to make the stay great. And you simply can't beat the view!! The attached pic is from our balcony (that's the railing at the bottom of the pic). We come to Isla every year and we would certainly stay here again.
The location, view and really cute rooms got it a 3 star but I’ve seen a lot of recommendations on TripAdvisor telling solo female travelers to come here and I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for those. I simply didn’t feel safe during my stay. As I’m a solo female traveler myself, I always request a higher floor when I travel. This hotel in particular made you pay extra for non ground floor rooms. Perfect, right? Wrong! To my dismay, I was placed in a room that I would absolutely consider ground floor. The staff however said the “basement” rooms are what’s considered ground floor and wouldn’t switch my room to a higher one. As I feared, passer bys could see my room from the sidewalk. Anyone could easily climb that balcony. Safety is a big priority for me so I cut my stay short and moved hotels after only 2 nights.…
We stayed 5 days in this very nice hotel located in city center just 10 minutes walk from Playa Norte. Great sea view, clean rooms with friendly staff. Fair price for value you get. Many restaurants around and gricery store. Street food available next to the church. We will be back one day.
Amazing Hotel for the price!! We stayed here for 4 nights last week. It was only $56 per night and was more than worth it. The room was very clean, water pressure was very good, bed was comfortable and had the most amazing sunrises!!! Pool was very nice too. The property is about a 5 min walk to the beach, grocery store and numerous restaurants. About a 10 to 15 min walk to Playa Norte. Also, on 2 or 3 blocks from the Ferry Terminal...straight wall right from the Ferry entrance.
What I mean by the title of this review is on first appearance the room looks a little old and/or run down but the hotel really grew on my girlfriend and I. So it could use some room darkening curtains and the shower could have a lot better water pressure but once you get over the small things you realize what a bargain this hotel really is. You have a million dollar view, it is about 3 blocks walking a straight shot right off the ferry, you are about a block from the main entertainment/food area Hidalgo street. In our opinion all that makes it 5 stars! Oh there’s a very nice kitty on the grounds as well that we fed during our stay.
