Nice little hotel just a few blocks from the main square. Breakfast included which is unusual for a Central American hotel. Nice pool facilities and very big comfy beds with decent en suites and some hot water from the showers (though my partner had better luck than I did). Rooms are basic but very functional and well maintained, though the...

The staff were friendly, the bed and pillows comfortable, good wifi and a good breakfast was included. There was a roof top lounge with 4 hammocks that you can use. Unfortunately, there were major problems with the hot water. The rooms were tiny and with the metal door, gave the impression you were in a prison cell. There was a...

My girlfriend and I showed up after finding this place on the internet. We came in and Danny was working the front desk, after talking to him we were told it would be $38 for a night after looking at the room and seeing how small it was I figured 38 was a good price. The next morning while checking...

Came during a missions trip and this place was clean, neat, spacious and loved the staircase that led up to the hammock area above the pool. The rooms were nice and cold. Loved the variety of sitting areas to hang out. Attentive staff and the security was on point. They kept my tea cup filled. The only regret I had...

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was super clean, had air conditioning, a fan, wifi, and breakfast. The only area for improvement would be water pressure for a shower, but that is nitpicking. Staff were friendly and location was great!

“My only suggestion from a member of our party would be to avoid the triple right near the kitchen/pool area. It got a bit loud outside for them.”

“The rooms on the ground floor near the kitchen can be noisy in the morning, as breakfast is prepared there. However, the hotel is really quiet during the day, and secure from the street.”
