We just returned from a trip to Antigua (with another couple) and chose this hotel based on other reviews. We were NOT dissappointed!! This hotel was perfect in every way. The staff was extremely friendly and always ready to help in any way. The location is great since it is less than a block from the main square. Our room was on the street side, yet was surprisingly quiet. Everywhere in the hotel was kept spotless, and the courtyard is like a small piece of paradise. Beautiful flowers and plants surround the courtyard. The breakfast (included in the price) was always delicious and the little lounge serves the BEST margaritas in Antigua. We always felt very safe here, also, as the gate going in to the hotel is locked at all times and must be unlocked from inside by the staff (and someone is at the desk at all times). I would not hesitate to stay here again on any future trip to Antigua.
