Wonderful place to rest and recharge
Very peaceful and clean. The service was excellent! The help was key in assisting us to organize a last minute trip to Cabo de la Vela and Punta Gallinas with a local agency.

2/10 Poor

We liked Palomino and the beach-but this hotel was a very bad choice. It is very expensive but the whole place is just worth half of its price. The pools are nice. But they should start to change a lot. The rooms are simple-which is never what we expect when we hear boutique hotel...rust in the bathroom, holes beside the window, stains on the blankets, etc...the breakfast is simply hilarious- they offer you a little bit - which has never been enough for all the people sitting there. This was the most expensive hotel on our trip - but we couldn't find a reason why they take so much...

Volgende keer beter...
Tegenvaller ondanks positieve comments online, Water was niet aangesloten, electriciteit valde regelmatig uit en er waren dieren uitwerpselen op onze kamer. Wij hebben het hotel vroegtijdig verlaten. Enige positieve was het uizicht op de zee en de bediening bleef vriendelijk.
