Hodelpa- Caribe Colonial STO
I was so excited for this stay as it was my husband and I anniversary. When we arrive the guest service agent was very nice and all but once we entered our room in 201 the room was in horrible condition. The phone didn’t work when we tried calling downstairs, the bathroom door broke off, the floor was dirty, the bed was super squeaky just by sitting on it and the room was extremely small with no view at all. This by far has been one of the worse hotels I’ve stayed in.

The staff went above & beyond to help me feel comfortable & safe. They also made sure I was able to take a tour of a nearby ecopark & escorted me to a bank to get some cash for some unexpected cash needs for airport transfer & tours. The food was also excellent in the onsite restaurant. I had the most delicious sancocho there! The only complaint I have is that the restaurant didn’t have enough room for me to sit inside & there is no pool. But I really didn’t have time to hang out there anyway. I loved my time at this hotel!!

I have stayed here a number of times, but this stay was not up to expectations. The room had a number of issues. This room had not been remodeled as some of the other rooms. Had a some leak in the bathroom. Shower door kept coming loose, and there was a leak in the ceiling from the room over me.
