I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful hotel. This was our second 2 week stay (February 9th - 22nd, 2013) here and we will be returning for a 3rd!!!
Check-in: We arrived a little early so our room wasn’t quite ready. After about a 50 degree change we were fine with that because a nice cold drink was the number one priority. We left our bags at the front desk and headed out to quench our thirst. When we returned about ½ hour later the young man at the desk escorted us to our room (where our luggage was waiting for us) and showed us around the room, how to work the air conditioning and ceiling fan. We felt welcome and appreciated the attention after a long day of travel.
Room: Our room was spectacular! Beautifully decorated, fresh flowers and spotlessly clean. We had a king sized bed which was extremely comfortable and 4 big pillows. The entire décor of the room was wonderful and had a very warm feeling to it. The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job every day. We would return to our room after a long day of play, open the door and a wonderful fresh and clean smell would greet us. The air conditioning was quiet and cooled the room quickly.
Shower: The shower was large with no problems with hot water and the water pressure was excellent. An extra bonus was a clothesline in the shower to hang our wet bathing suits. The clothesline may not sound like a big deal but to me it was. I always worry about to hang our wet things.
Location: The location of the hotel is perfect for us because we love to walk around the plaza and experience the town and the people of La Crucieta. It is a short and inexpensive taxi ride to the area beaches and a very short walk (blocks) to shopping and restaruants.
Restaurant: The Terra Cotta restaurant is as lovely as the hotel. Cloth tablecloths and napkins and the staff was excellent and attentive. The food is excellent at a really good price. The menu is diverse and has something to suit every taste. We were traveling with a vegetarian and she had no difficulty finding menu items that suited her dietary requirements. Don’t miss the stuffed French toast or the desserts!
Check-out: Our checkout was as smooth and easy as the check-in. We offered assistance to get our backs down the stairs (which we greatly appreciated).
Staff: Magdelino (sp) at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with every encounter we had with him. With my limited Spanish and his limited English communication with him was never a problem. The young man in the evening (I can’t remember his name) was also very friendly, helpful and a wonderful help to us. Everyone was friendly and greeted us with a smile and made us feel welcome every time we saw them.
We can’t say enough good things about this hotel and the entire staff from the owners to the housekeeping staff. In our opinion this is definitely a 5 star hotel at an unbelievable price. Thank you to all of the staff for another wonderful stay and we look forward to our next visit in 2014.
