...which actually isn't hard to claim, as there are only a few places in the town! The Malecon House is lovely in its own right, though. My spouse and I were pleased overall with our stay. I chose the Buena Vista room so we could spread out and I wanted a deck. The sliding doors don't have screens so they had to be shut at all times due to the mosquitoes, so unless the very loud A/C in the bedroom was cranked, it was impossible to relax, much less sleep, in the living room. Because of the loudness of the A/C, we instead slept with the (screened) windows open. The cacophony of coqils and night birds was wonderful. Waking up to the sounds of pool and grounds maintenance, etc.,plus during the evening by the bar next door, however, wasn't. I think the hotel is overpriced when I take into consideration 1) the breakfast:(cereal, sweet baked goods and fruit - no protein and nothing without sugar) and 2) the only drinking water available is from a cooler on the bottom floor, with small paper cups on the side. For $250/night I think a large bottle or glass jug of fresh water should be included at least in the Buena Vista room. For all the use we got out of the living room, I wish we'd gotten a smaller room; it would have saved us $400. Still though, the place is lovely & clean, the pool is great and the location is great. Advice to visitors to the Island: Rent a Jeep, not a car, and study all the info you can find on the beaches and the locals. It's a great island but I'm glad I studied ahead of our trip.
