We loved this place. I liked our room, it had 3 twin beds (which meant I didn't get to cuddle with hubby for 4 nights oh well), the bathroom was roomy with a fully tiled shower that had hot water. There were plenty of blankets on the bed for those chilly mountain nights.
Our room had a balcony not facing the waterfall but with a pretty peaceful view. We left the balcony door open most of the time and could hear kids playing soccer from a few blocks away. It was pleasant. We never lacked for wi-fi. Some rooms have it, I'm told that some rooms don't.
The breakfast terrace was nice and had a 360 view. We ate breakfast every morning and they charge it to your room, always very good. One of our servers was a little grumpy every day but everyone else was nice. We also used the laundry service which they also charge to your room. It came back clean and folded (not as good as I fold but we were stuffing them into airtight bags and then into backpacks.
I was afraid of the bill with all the breakfast and laundry. Our rooms were $9 a night per person. That comes to $108. I told hubby not to freak out if the final bill was over $170, 3 people eating breakfast 4 days and a huge pile of laundry could add up fast. The total was $141. $33 extra for the food and clothes, not bad, especially since this place is well located and very safe feeling. My daughter was comfortable enough to stay in the room while we went for food. She's 12.
I encourage families to stay here for a clean, safe, affordable place.
