The prominent photos of the first George Bush and the old man owner walking around here never acknowledging guests is a tip off. Cool location overlooking La Barra beach. Since we speak Spanish, not sure how non speakers would make out- probably be a chore to stay here...We like this old school funky hotel but it is apparent that not one step has been taken to become current except the spotty wifi. There are no well lighted public spaces among the hodgepodge of corridors and sitting rooms. The only books and magazines are the real estate ad variety. Our local fish lunch was tasty but everything on the plate was drowning in butter. Everywhere one looks there is deferred maintenance apparent. Like its oblivious owner the place needs a swift kick in the pants.

I booked a table for a couple to celebrate his anniversary and imagine that was CLOSED? Even received the e-mail confirmation from MONICA. I send an e-mail to complain and MONICA told me sorry was a mistake!!! This restaurant must learn to work!

On the pricey side, the food was excellent, I ordered brotola with a zapallo mousse it was delicious.
