This is an old, large home built into a hotel. The staff was always there to help with anything 24 hours to include the kitchen staff that was there to hand out coffee, etc at night. Our room was in front of the peaceful flowing fountain, and next to the spotless pool, no spa or gym. There is enough opportunity to walk everywhere.The whole property was spotless. Breakfast included tropical juices, fruit, coffee, tea, water, and scrambled eggs each day with a different added meat. Beans everyday plus a different Mexican dish every day, all delicious and hot and fresh...Sunday morn surprised us with guitarists while we ate....The internet and wifi were fine and the staff was always helpful if we needed. The room was lacking an ironing board and blankets but were available upon request....This is not an American standard hotel. So if you want everything to be and look like one, think twice as in my experience, American hotels are not always want you pay for...this hotel is where you should stay if you want to experience the culture...In the center of town where there is always something going on and if you hear music at night it is the people celebrating their heritage..There were 9 of us and we were all pleased. There are several sitting areas, inside and out, some with rocking chairs and fountains....just wonderful....
The front desk, the room service, the kitchen staff all were superb and eager to please....some spoke English.
