  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We will definitely be returning to Banana Palms. Perfect for families or a romantic getaway, clean, very secure, and with a great variety of activities. The only disappointment was that the jacuzzi was not heated and only one of the jet skis was working so we did not get to spend as much time as we would have liked. The location is great - we walked to Castillo San Felipe within 15 minutes!

    Good location, bad amenities not recommended

    The location is good, easy access to the lake. Hotel amenities not so good. The room did not have lamps on night stands had to get out of bed to turn the lights on, did not have plugs by the bed to charge electronics. The room had only two plugs one by the sick area and the other behind the tv. Tv too small ant the reception was horrible. The Wi-Fi never worked, no mini bar and refrigerator. The food Available in the the restaurant was less than average an too expensive for the quality.
