This hotel is amazing in terms of its decor and artistic and cultural appeal. The reception, courtyard, piano room and bar are jam packed with artefacts, ephemera, art work and books which are delight to look at and explore. As a tribute to the Suchitoto artist original Carlos Canas art work is on display in the bar, the piano room and around the courtyard. The rooms vary from the suites which are either duplex or have their own fountain and once again are crammed with tasteful art work and trinkets. My room was a smaller one off the courtyard near reception which was fine for one person, sparkling clean and quiet. Rooms have a tendency to be a bit dark as there is no overhead lighting, only lamps, but this is a small detail which does not detract from the overall impression. Safe and ideal location in centre, a minutes walk to the main square, cafes, church and shops. Staff are friendly and helpful, command of English is variable. Breakfast in the courtyard is adequate and the swimming pool is clean. Food in the restaurant was very nice and well presented but not cheap. The thunder and lightening storms are a delight to watch in the courtyard. This hotel is a rare gem in a rare location which I will remember fondly and would love to return one day.
