Everything you read here that is positive about this remarkable hotel is true and then some. We stayed four nights exploring all that old Sal Juan has to offer and probably took more pictures of the hotel than all the others combined.
While the rooms are small (it is a former convent 350+ years old, so sisters did not exactly have spacious quarters) they are elegant and modern in every sense of the word. The high vaulted ceilings, period decor and ultra modern bathrooms, combined with the beautiful courtyards with outdoor restaurants and the chapel that is now used for receptions make for a very special stay, well worht the price.
This is not a hotel to just stay in on your way to or from a cruise, it is a destination to be expienced and enjoyed. Ask for room 106 or 107 which have a second enclosed outdoor sitting area that almost makes the room double the size.
