3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Hotel oriented to domestic guests
Ideal location right on the river, a short block off the Malecon. Very nicely landscaped central courtyard, unfortunately equipped with wrought iron furniture that hurts to sit in. The rooms are adequate and functional as long as you have reasonable expectations for a budget hotel in a developing country. The pool will appeal only to kids. In 11 days, we never saw any other foreign guests. The onsite restaurant has nice views and is surprisingly popular with locals. The worst aspect is they expect you to wear a wrist band for the entire stay. And, after 11 days paying for an upgraded room, they made me pay 100 pesos to extend the checkout by 1 hour - on a midweek day when the place was nearly empty.
