  • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Relaxed environment with everything you need

We arrived late and was greeted by a fiesta in the garden outside our room. We found it entertaining and appreciated that it ended about midnight. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. We had a few hours check out so we hung out in the common area. Everyone was great.

Party place with nice decor

Staff were a little offhand staff the beginning but they were very nice overall. This is a party place so if you are looking for a quiet place this is not it. I liked the decor and everything about it but we were kept awake by other guests who were drinking in the courtyard all night.

Common area nice but rooms are dirty

The hotel is well located. Their common area is nice as well, the kitchen is nice too. We were in a private room with a private bathroom. Saying the room was ugly would be an understatement. It really was filthy and moldy. The curtains need to be changed (see attached pic). In fact, the room we had should be renovated illico presto.
