Truth be said, my dear wife and I decided to take a weekend off from work in town. We live in Guaymas, Sonora, northern Mexico, and we had a pest control at home, so I took the chance to buy us a night in the Executive room of Hotel Armida.
It sounds better than it looks,though. The only "executive" treatment we received was at the front desk, where receptionist were dressed as executives, yet the way they took our information and settled our reservation was totally impersonal, they never looked at us really, not a single moment.
Then there was the room, old paint, old furniture, it looked like a 2-star motel in the middle of nowhere, and believe me when I say this, WE ARE NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE! Still, we could hear the conversations of the people in the room nextdoor as if they were in ours!
The reservation I had made, and the price I paid included the buffet for one person, and this was not outstanding either, except for the price of dishes "a la carte" which was too expensive for what they offered.
I remember having stayed in another hotel, less expensive, with no fancy names for the rooms, only numbered ones, which was far more convincing and comfortable, plus gave me the sensation of amazing cleanliness, which was lacking at the Armida.
I would recommend that other hotel, not the case of Armida, at all. Even for a romantic night with your beloved one.
