Unfortunately, this was a very busy time of the year with the holidays and the end of the Mayan calendar so all the hotels we contacted on Flores island were fully booked.
The location is good if you have to stay in Santa Elena. It is close to the causeway and within walking distance to Flores. However, Santa Elena doesn't have a lot to offer and you can find a lot more charming, waterfront hotels on Flores island for the same price.
The reception and bar/dinning area are nice enough with a courtyard. But the hotel grounds, rooms and swimming pool area are outdated and in need of maintenance/upgrade. The bar played loud music so sleeping early was a bit of a problem.
The staff were Ok but not super friendly. They didn't speak much English so tried to avoid us since we don't speak Spanish.
A continental breakfast was included in the room price but we chose to "upgrade" to a full breakfast which was nothing special and overpriced in my opinion.
