6/10 Good

Pésimo servicio
Muy malo el servicio. Desde el check in hasta la salida. Nada de colaboración, déspotas y cero interés por negocios ya que tengo un grupo grande y no me dieron ni siquiera la información adecuada. Nada que ver con la excelencia cuando perteneció a la cadena Estelar. Descuidados y cero profesionales del sector. Troste decirlo pero así es.

Great location, affordable hotel
The location is good. Near the beach and nany places to eat. The hotel has an elevator but the wont let you use it due to covid. Which is odd. We were on the 4th floor so thst was inconvenient. The hotel room over all was nice, spacious and clean. The toilet took a long time to fill but other than that the room was comfortable. The daily breakfast was simple but good

Extremely Disappointed....
Though there is alot of potential for the Hotel leftover from the previous ownership either management or current ownership don't care about customer service and occupant comfort.. The elevator did not work during my entire stay, breakfast was a sham with the ants eating better than me as they crawled all over the table and all common areas offered no relief from outdoor humidity while the A/C remained off.. The only bright spots where the spacious rooms and exemplary front desk stewards both day and night...

2/10 Poor

The pool was not in operation and could not get a clear answer from staff if it would be accessible in the future. The elevator was not working and we were placed on the 3rd floor and had to carry our bags up 3 flights of stairs. The room smelled funky.

I have stayed at this hotel many times before the new owners bought it. I love the hotel it has a lot of character. It has the best location in Boca Grande. Many restaurants a lot of wildlife on the lake. And steps to the beach. The breakfast was excellent the Housekeeping did an excellent job at keeping my room clean with fresh bedding. The front desk staff went out of their way to make sure I got everything I desired. I want to give a special thanks to Karina Marimon edgar jorge
