“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

A beautiful property, with great rooms and a fantastic breakfast overlooking a beautiful garden. Close to everything you need and want to be at. We stayed in room 311 which was very nice but the window opened to the dining area so noise was a bit of an issue if you are going to bed early, but the bed was so comfy it didn't really matter.

We were in Antigua on a day trip from a cruise ship. Our local guide recommended the restaurant for lunch. We were not disappointed. The food was delightful, with rustic homemade tortillas, the service great and the atmosphere perfect. Would highly recommend for a meal. The hotel itself looked fabulous and we would consider staying here.

I spent there 1 week, the staff is very friendly and helpful cant complain a thing,
Very charming hotel, I had no troubles at all. I will definitely will be back, good price for the room, I asked them to change the bed cause it was a bit uncomfortable and they had no problem, right away went and change the matress no questions ask.
Small hotel but oh boy great friendly service and myself is what I am looking for when I travel. To be in a nice clean safe place where I can feel comfortable. If I go back to Antigua I am planning to go back to the same hotel, I had being in other hotels in Antigua and I havent had such a pleasent time like I did here. I will say that if you are not happy with something there you can ask to have it or either change or ask for what you want, they do like and want to serve turist and the go an extra mile to make you smile. I like that!

This was by far one of the loveliest and cleanest hotels I have stayed in. The staff was very friendly and so helpful. The property is very well maintained and cared for. I love the enclosed courtyard gardens with plenty of shady seating areas and the rooftop restaurant with a view of the town and mountains was a true memory maker. The only down side was that my room, which was stunning, was on the main street and very noisy when the window was open to get air. There is no air conditioning but the breeze is great. As long as the window was closed on the front of the room it was very quiet. So, bring ear plugs during the week. On weekends the street is blocked off to traffic so it is quieter.

Be sure to order coffee (delicious) outside in one of the courtyards in the mornings. This was a favorite part of each day for me.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a quiet room.

This hotel was a complete surprise when you walk through the doors. It was full of beautiful flowers in the courtyards and hanging from the balconies and there was a marimba band playing when we arrived. The room was very comfortable and clean. When we went down to the restaurant for dinner we were treated to a performance of folk dancing. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice as was the evening meal. Antigua itself was extremely clean and felt very safe when walking around. It really is a very beautiful place to visit and I would thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone. I would love to go back one day.

This hotel has a great location right in the middle of Antigua. It is very pretty with courtyards that are beautiful and well maintained. The staff was very friendly helpful when needed. The problem we had was our bed was not very comfortable, the mattress was old and we kind of sunk into the middle of it. Also, our room was above the restaurant so we heard the clanging of silverware and china relatively early in the mornings as they set up. On the flip side, our room had a great view of Volcan Agua, but when I am on vacation I don't spend a lot of time in the room. Overall a very nice hotel but our specific room was not the best.

Room Tip: Not above the restaurant if you are a light sleeper.

This is the hotel to choose while in Antigua! The music, the gardens, the light, the atmosphere, the little touches, the friendly service from the staff.... the rooms, the security, nice bathrooms... just everything as you would dream for the magical Antigua!
Breakfasts were very good. We enjoyed the bar on the second level terrace one evening, the vistas of the volcanos were one highlight of our trip. We had dinner at the hotel one night and had traditional dishes! Tasty and different. A group of folk dancers came at the end of our dinner. Colorful and fun, not intrusive, but welcoming!
There was marimba music in the first courtyard of the hotel. The musicians were a treat to hear!
Overriding all this ambiance was the super service and friendliness of the entire staff. Everyone was knowledgeable and willing to share their information.
I would recommend this hotel to every one!
