Love this place. Right in old town, heart of where you want to be. Beautiful hotel on the beach. Great restaurant too. Restaurant is Austrian but very high end and very good. Cannot beat this hotel for the price. More>

Great Place to Spend the Winter!

We stay at the suites rather than the playa. Cooking facilities, great pool - actually 3 pools available. Terrific staff. They even clean your sunglasses and computer screen, as well as serve fruit and ice cream in the afternoons. Can't wait for Jan. 2017. More>

Great staff in Old Town location

Our Feb stay at this hotel was very nice. The staff are very friendly, helpful and charming. The maids, bellmen, waiters, and beach waitstaff made us feel very welcomed and truly made our visit great. The location is great if you want to walk around in the older part of the city and try local cooking/shopping. The rooms, pools and grounds were keep very clean and secure. A few touches would have made our trip wonderful... We stayed in room 1 which is a room that could use some TLC. The beds were rock-hard and extremely uncomfortable. We tried both beds in the room and were disappointed by both. We also learned that other rooms had mini-refrigerators in them. This room did not. That was a big disappointment as well because a cold bottle of water or cold soda prior to when the bar opened would have been nice. There was a torn screen in the bathroom that was boarded up & looked pretty tacky. A few things to mention, this hotel has vacationers that have been coming for decades and they do receive preferential treatment in the restaurant & on the beach. The beach chairs are set up in advance for those customers and they get the upright chairs & tables unless you get there just as they are setting up. Tipping the beach staff does help. There's no bar to sit at in the evening so the entertainment is in the one & only restaurant. There again, the returnees take the entire center area & the lone waitress caters primarily to them. The hotel offers a dining/spa discount to customers but make it a complete hassle to get. We had to TRY to catch the headwaiter to get a little business card that we had to present each time for the discount. The discounts should be automatically given to all customers eating at the restaurant based on the hotel id bracelet you're wearing that shows you're a hotel guest. We thoroughly enjoyed the area as there are lots of restaurants, opportunities to shop, and there's always something going on in the bay. Be prepared to be approached by local vendors NON-STOP on the beach. They interrupt conversations, reading, & relaxing with their constant peddling so if that bothers you, you may want to explore other options. The staff is what makes this hotel one we'll probably return to.... just hope the beds are softer & a refrigerator is in every room. More>
