The hotel has its attractions, such as location near the main drag and a laid back ambiance, but it also has some issues with providing hot water in a reliable manner. The staff is great and willing to help. Breakfast could definitely be expanded from the basics currently provided.

This hotel has seen better days. It's not run down or in bad condition but you can sense it's seen better days. The location is fine, a 5 minute walk from the Main Street where you can find a good choice of restaurants and not 10 minutes away you can find Calle los kioskos which is a street lined in... More

The rooms were clean but Spartan and shabby. The bathroom had a shower that belatedly delivered warm water but only if you left it running. - - not a sound practice in a location where fresh water is a scarce resource. The service was extremely poor. We waited an hour for more than the single towel that had been left.... More

Lovely hotel with a wonderful staff, clean rooms, refreshing swimming pool, excellent breakfast, great location for touring Santa Cruz, Bartolome and Santa Fe Islands. We were on a land-based tour with BikeHike Adventures, and really enjoyed being able to connect to the local culture, along with the extraordinary wildlife.

This hotel is fairly well located, clean, and quite comfortable. We stayed two nights, and it was fine for that period. The room was adequate, and the bathroom likewise, no complaints there. Internet was slow and patchy, but we got by. Food was nothing special, basic and adequate. All in all, an average stay...

There are fancier hotels in town with better views - and much higher prices - but "the Ferd" is a clean, comfortable, reasonably-maintained place to stay in PA. It is a couple of short blocks' walk from the bustling waterfront. The Ferd has a pleasant outdoor courtyard to socialize in, as well as a modest outdoor pool. Rooms are simple... More

We stayed here for 6 nights as we left our catamaran. The room was clean and looked after every day. The breakfast was very average but you could eat. The staff were ok, some nicer than others but not very friendly. Is just in the outskirts of town but well placed to walk in (and get a little exercise) value... More
