Hi Carolyn, Thanks for guys feedback. Will look into the room. Keep in mind that you booked the economy one so to say that the rooms are run down is an inaccurate over-generalized statement. Breakfast is free and considering what you paid for the stay...More

I was very pleased with my stay at Hotel El Bosque. I had a simple room, which worked for me because I was only there to sleep. The bed was comfortable enough, quiet location, water pressure was a bit soft and the water was warm,...More
