This place is sorely lacking. Not kept up. Saw lots of spiders on the wall at night—they ran into the cracks when lights went on in room. No mosquito nets or good screens. Lots of noise at night from nearby hostels. Poor lighting to find room at night.

Dear Elaine, Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear about your experience at our hotel. We have taken care of the lights to find the rooms and also have improved our cleaning in the rooms. As for the wall spiders, its hard to avoid them on windy days, we will certainly look for better solution on this. Again, I hope you come back again and have a great experience at our hotel. Sincerely, Arca de Noe

I didn't stay at the hotel but enjoyed the restaurant a few times during my stay in Sanata Cruz. The food and drinks were delicious, I especially enjoyed the breakfast. The view is beautiful, surrounded by goregous gardens.
