Superb room with great facilities and fantastic view. Staff were very friendly, restaurant and bar offered great food and drink. Lunch box for trips was a great option. Nice walk into the centre, but has a shuttle service if you can't walk that far.

I believe the kitchen stays open till 11:30pm or later. Most late tours get back around 9-10pm. Taxis in town will cost $365 pesos to get to the hotel. Keep in mind that Uber does not work in this region.
