Excellent Location and Super Staff
We enjoyed our 4 nite stay, so convenient for walking everywhere, making it fun to explore Old Town.The staff was amazing starting with our arrival and gave us many good recommendations. Our kitchenette room was fairly large and it was great to have a little fridge. We didn’t do any cooking, they have a microwave to warm up leftovers and don’t think we’d enjoy cooking on a hot plate- tho sure some people do. They have a coffe pot but no coffee. Theres a convenient OXXO store across the street where you can buy beer, other drinks, chips etc. It’s very quiet at night but buses and other traffic start very early in the mornings. They leave a couple of large towels for the shower and only one hand towel, no wash cloths. The linens need to be replaced, a big rip on one of our bottom sheets. We also had toilet flushing problems the last two days. They have an excellent restaurant on site with great margaritas and HH all day until 7 pm. We ate there 3 times! We would return for a couple of nites when we want the convenience of staying DT.

A/C & fridge turns off everytime you open you do
Great place but they are trying to save energy by turning off thr a/c if you open any door. If you leave the room the a/c and all power in the room turn/s off automatically and if is a hot summer day you have to wait three hours for A/C to cool the room and if you have stuff in the fridge it will not cool them cause it also turn off. It is the dumbest way to safe energy

Reservation Snafu Again!
2nd time we stay here and they mess up the reservations. We specifically ask for a double and twin bed and we are given a King size bed. The restaurant was closed which made it hard for us because it was raining with thunder and lightning every night. We had to get a taxi to go out to eat. Very inconvenient. Massage Therapist on site is FANTASTIC!!!
