Hotel El Convento Review

There's no longer anything austere about this 350-year-old former convent. All the guest rooms are lavish and inviting, with a mix of wrought-iron and hand-hewn wood furniture, shuttered windows, and mahogany-beamed ceilings joining high-tech amenities like broadband and plasma TVs. Room 508 has a view of the old city and the bay, while Rooms 216, 217, and 218 have private walled patios. Guests gather on the third floor for the complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres that are served before dinner—it's also got a lovely view over the nearby cathedral. The second-floor El Picoteo and Pizza e Birra are good dining choices.
