First I must say we had only planned to stay for one night, but our whale excursion did not pan out so we booked 2 additional nights - I really did not have high expectations for this property, and rarely have I been so pleasantly surprised. Husband and I loved this hotel and

Thank you, 668shellye, for your review. We are sooo glad you were able to stay a couple extra days longer than planned and that you were sooo glad you did. Our restaurant, El Cortez, is getting rave reviews and your input is most appreciated. Our staff is eager to serve and yes, location is key.

We have been staying at this hotel for about 25 years. Over the years the hotel has expanded and made many improvements, but the service has never changed. It has always been excellent. It is not a luxury beachfront hotel, but the rooms are comfortable and the courtyard is

To be honest we didn't hang around the hotel at night although it looked like other guests did. It is so central, you are near lively bars and restaurants. Plus we felt totally safe in the area so were happy to be out of an evening. Breakfast is plentiful and cheap. If you want to hang around the hotel, there is a bar and seating areas where you could while away an evening. Very authentic, chilled place. We loved it.

Some recent reviews say their room had a tv...which rooms now have TV's?
We did not have a TV in the single King room. In April. The location is so close to restaurants and entertainment, we likely would never have watched it if it was in the room.
