My husband and I would definitely stay here again and have recommended the hotel to all of our friends. We had a wonderful time. We only stayed two nights pre-cruise, but that was plenty of time to get a feel for the place.
Joe Uribe, owner/manager, was a most wonderful host. He certainly understands the importance of providing a high level of service to guests. I emailed Joe prior to booking and he was readily available and responsive. I appreciate this very much. The hotel itself far exceeded my expectations.
Upon arrival at the airport, we easily located our driver. He was quite friendly and helpful with pointing out good local eats. We were in our room in 10 minutes flat. Joe helped us with our luggage and then took the time to explain the city layout, and gave us a list of good places to eat, and things to do.
Our room was more than adequate in size. The room came with a fully equipped kitchen, a washer/dryer (no detergent, buy yours at Walgreens at the town square), and a balcony that lined the entire side of one room. Air conditioning was fabulous. The living area was extremely large and comfortable. I loved the decor and furniture. Very nice. The bedroom was perfect in size. The bathroom was not large but suited our needs fine. One suggestion: Hooks are needed for towels, clothes, etc. The door would be a good place for these or just outside the door.
I was impressed with the secure doors and entrances. We used the roof top terrace one evening found it an enjoyable place to hang out.
I had forgotten to bring my cruise documents, and so Joe let me use his office to get them printed. Every morning Joe brought us French press coffee, baguettes, cheese, meats, fruits, and fruit juice.
The location was absolutely perfect. We walked to El Morro, an evening festival, the town square, lots of exciting restaurants (including El Barrachino - the flamenco show is a must see - be sure to make reservations and show up 15 min early). Finally, for other cruisers, we rolled our luggage to the port with no problem at all. It is all downhill. There is a CVS right next to the port so we rolled our luggage in there and did some shopping just before boarding.
Starting our vacation at La Terraza was a great choice. We felt like we got two vacations by starting here and then enjoying our cruise. Any questions please email me. Thanks Joe for a great time!!
