This is a 200-year-old house that's being remodeled into a very nice B&B by the Sanchez family who go out of heir way to be helpful. We found it to be a great place to fly into and then leave and come back (to the jungle, the Galapagos, etc.). Bernardo Sanchez speaks English like an American (i.e. colloquially), helpful in a country where not many others do unless there's a need.
It's well-located in old town, close to a neat little street called the Ronda and across the street from a big Franciscan church (San Francisco). Everything you want is within a short walk of this place.
While it's not a Hilton (which is in another part of town), most of the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the showers are splendid and the food in the restaurant on the ground floor is top notch.
Can't go wrong here. We're in our 60's and found a lot of others our age, especially Europeans, enjoying the place. You can pick a plastic hotel that will convince you you've not yet left the US, or you can begin to immerse yourself in this wonderful county and culture with one of it's finest examples, the Sanchez family and their hotel, the Portal de Cantuna!
