Fabulous 8.6 From 40 reviews

Very good 8.0
Colonial boutique hotel with great staff
Very nice hotel. Tranquil and great attention. Jose was spectacular. Maria and Casey were great. Just an amazing staff. The food was great. Breakfast buffet generous with good variety. Room service was fast and delicious. One gripe was the jacuzzi seemed a little dirty. AC worked well in bedroom but the bathroom didnt have any which I didnt mind. Overall very relaxing and pleasant.

Will stay again
Very nice boutique hotel in a great location, walking distance to everything in the old walled town, with small pools on the 3rd level. AC & wifi worked perfectly, and while I didn’t speak much Spanish the staff was able to communicate with me (despite their limited English).
