The hotel is located in the centrical zone of Bocagrande, near the Noa mall and other commercial stores and it's close to the beach. It has good accommodations and the service is supreme (all the staff is very kind). The pool and the gym are in the 5th floor and it is fully equipped; I was able to resume my... More

We had two reservations made at this hotel since we would be spending a few days in a different city. Our first 3 nights were a little uncomfortable as the bathroom was in very poor conditions. The paint was peeling heavily, the tub was stained, the grout was blackened in some areas, the shower rod caps were coming loose on... More

For sure not a 5 star hotel. Maybe 3 stars. It needs a total renovation especially the rooms. Breakfast is very limited and pool area small and old. Staff was nice and the rooms were large enough, but not enough to compensate the negative aspects. For sure bit recommended.

The Almirante is ranked a 5 star hotel. The location is great, the lobby is beautiful and the food was very good. I had a room with an ocean view and the view was stunning. The rooms were fine--nice bathroom, very comfortable bed, and other furnishings were fine (not extravagant by any means). I have two negative comments--check-in is a... More

It was a mission to complete the check in; I had to wait 45 mins because they didn't have any clean rooms; although they gave me. a complimentary free drink at the bar, I was already mad and tired.Besides that everything was pretty much okay. Not too much variety in the buffet for the breakfast. Staff were very kind.

Here's what I liked: GREAT ocean views, great location, nice lobby and bar, nice staff! I didn't like: WiFi in room was not stable at all, and only ONE English channel on TV (BBC). Not that I go on vacation to watch TV, but at the end of the day, I like to relax in bed and fall asleep to... More

This hotel is very pretty. The ambiance is great. It has a great look. There isn't much else I can say about it, other than it's pretty and the beds are rock solid and not quite big enough. It's definitely nothing to write home about. I would say Average.
