You should invest the money for seaview room! Clean hotel with helpful staff! Rooms are big and you have no noise! I will come back as I enjoyed the stay! Did not have breakfast incl. in room rate, so it was a bit more expensive, but ok!

This is a grand old hotel which has been moderised and is a delight. Had a good double aspect room which was very comfortable. Delightful staff, convenient location just a short cab ride to the centre of town.

I stayed here for 7 days and it was very nice my room had a nice view looking on to the beach, the room was was very comfortable it was nice to have electronic blinds that darkened the room perfectly. The mini bar was topped up for free every with water and fruit and it was a nice touch. I had breakfast included in my stay and it was good quality food but there could have been more vegan options but still was some vegan options. All the staff were amazingly helpful and friendly they made my stay special thanks to them all and highly recommended this hotel 👍

The hotel is a little out of town but on the promenade and a good location. The room was good but the hotel lacks a good restaurant so it is necessary to eat out. Unfortunately the weather during our stay was really bad with lots of rain and high winds and the hotel staff had no umbrellas!! On balance the sister hotel Bahía is far better in terms of price, location and facilities.

We recently stayed for 4 days and could not be happier. The hotel was modern, clean and in a great location and at a great price. It was right across from the beach and within walking distance of anything you might want to see. The staff was extremely efficient and friendly.
