After checking out the website and reading Lonely Planets guide to this hotel we booked and were excited arrive to spend a few nights poolside with other tourists and enjoy the views. Well the views were the only thing we did enjoy. To begin with the hotel is oldish and not as modern as it appears on its website. Our...

I went for my birthday and on the Internet there was a special offer, it was not on when we got there. Everything on the Internet was not available. All the rooms although they had an amazing view were quite shabby for the price. The whole place was like it. The owner was rude and moody would not give us...

We stayed in a big room with a balcony and a fantastic view. And a hot shower! The only criticism of our room was the floor didn't seem too clean. We stayed because we wanted into relax and use the pool area, but this shouldn't be a huge draw - the pool area is not well maintained. I wasn't confident...

Having seen flyers everywhere offering reduced rates Sunday through Thursday and them paying the taxi we thought we would treat ourselves to a place with a pool...it was not worth it. Turned up to be told the rates (given to us the day before) didn't exist, she refused point blank to pay for the taxi and was out right rude...

The view it has this hotel is really beautiful, the breakfast is tasty as well but the rooms are not so special neither so clean, our room had a balcon and it was a plus. If you are not so picky regarding cleaningness and can adjust yourselve to that, then it is a place to go, it is worthy for...

I visited as part of a motorbike tour and I have to say if I had been visiting alone I doubt I would have chosen this place based on the reviews - but ..... The view is exceptional and that is a very good reason to stay. The rooms are quite spacious and comfortable and the pool is an added...

I have gone to Coroico some times ago and I have visited some really nice hotels. This time, I was looking for a different hotel to visit. So, I decided to visit Esmeralda Hotel. In the moment that I arrived to the hotel, the Fat woman (that is the owner of the place), told me that I had to pay...

The hostel is ok, I decided to stay here as its a well known place to stay in Coroico. The rooms are spacious and they have good wifi. The best thing was breakfast as you have a complete buffet from where you can choose. Maybe, I will change the sheets as they are old but overall is a good option.

The location and the views are unique in Coroico but the hotel is totally abandoned. Bbq, bars, massage room and sauna have been closed for years and not even the kitchen service is working (you have to walk 20min to the centre). The rooms have an intense smell of humidity and full of insects. The service is poor and the...
