Beautiful colonial architecture,looming large as you enter its gates from a busy main boulevard,with a characteristic palm garden in the front of the property.
Rooms were large with a lovely sit out facing the garden with two large cupboards and a comfortable bathroom with a shower attached to the bath,and an enclosed toilet and bidet which was rather useful when sharing the room.
tea and coffee facilities,free WIFI,comfy bed and linen.Bath towels were a bit discoloured with age!
Breakfast buffet was sumptous served in a beautiful with a skylight.The Bar opened out to large porches with fine music in the nights.The food in the restaurant was delicious and their huge Banquet Halls with frescos were stunning for a large formal wedding and a seated dinner .Service was good,silent and efficient.
It seemed we were at an "old" Club instead of a Hotel.
The location is not walking distance to the beach or the shops and local restaurants,but they are only a 7 min cab ride.
The old city(a must visit!) is again a 5 min cab ride!
The Gym is large and busy,the massages and facials are very good.The indoor pool is adequate and medium sized.the steamrooms,jacuzzi and sauna are all clean.
