My husband reserved the "executive suite" for several days on our vacation. We were given a 4th floor room with a mediocre bed, an old TV, two plastic lawn chairs, and an old dresser. The balcony had dried bird excrement on it and there were no other amenities. The noise from the dirty parking lot/ beach across the street went... More

I have visited this hotel for as long as I can remember, but the standard was not by far the same as it has been upon previous visits. We had booked the so called "BEST" room in the hotel with a balcony, however upon arrival to the room there was nothing special about the room at all, not even a... More

Have stayed in this hotel perhaps 5 or six times over the last 15 years. The hotel was once the best on the seafront but is a little faded now. Previous criticisms of the slight shabbiness of the rooms and pool area are all true, the breakfast is sparse. The alleged free Wi-Fi signal is so slow as to be... More

We spent a very nice few days at this hotel. There is nothing fancy here. We had a balcony room on the fourth floor. The room was furnished fairly simply but was certainly adequate for a short stay. All of the staff were very friendly and exceedingly helpful. The complementary breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, rice & beans, bread, fresh... More

As I've read from other reviews, this is "the only hotel on the beach". Unfortunately, this doesn't entail having nice rooms or common areas. The rooms were small and cramped, and we found cockroaches in the shower both nights that we stayed there. As we were in a large group, I asked around and found that others had also found... More

What a great stay at the Tioga. I needed a place to stay before departing on a cruise from Puerto Caldera. (a $15 cab ride away) The young woman (Elliot?) at the front desk gave me a fantastic room with a balcony. It overlooked the beach and the Avenida de Touristas. There was free wireless internet in the lobby that... More
