We always look for smaller hotels in the older part of a town or city when traveling. Location is perfect to walk all of the old town, starting with the old Fort, the cemetery, and then the narrow streets to shop, admire the architecture, and stop for a bite to eat. The El Convento was a perfect fit!
While still retaining it's historic charm, the rooms are nicely updated and kept in clean crisp condition. The Front Desk was very helpful with restaurant and bar suggestions, as well as help with car rental for our trip to Isabela. We were upgraded to a newly redecorated room and our travel companions had a roomy suite in traditional decor which was lovely. Our tiny complaint was that there was not a washcloth provided, but we figured it was a typically European tradition. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the main floor restaurant and a great cocktail in the second-floor bar. The view from the pool on the 4th floor was terrific, and the whole feel of the Hotel was charming, and quiet, too.
We would recommend this Hotel to other travelers and will be staying there again in April when we return for the wedding of our daughter.
