Fodor's Review

The well-kept gardens framed in bougainvillea define this inviting inn. Rooms are large, with high ceilings and local crafts. Villas share a courtyard and have tile kitchenettes. The bar has jazz or Caribbean music some weekend evenings. Out in the garden restaurant strands of tiny white lights set the mood for an evening meal.

This establishment certainly scores the maximum on atmosphere, providing a beautiful and faithfully reproduced colonial Spanish ambience. There are strange gaps, though: the first good hotel I've ever visited in any country that does not supply shampoo/conditioner; there were giant cobwebs draped from the ceiling of the shower in my unit; I mentioned them to the desk clerk and they were still there two weeks later when I left; toilet malfunctioned

in the middle of the night (no desk clerk then) and batteries on remote control were dead. This is the hardest mattress I've ever slept on, even in Mexico, where they don't use box springs. Details they don't do well, it seems, but the restaurant is very good (great on some items), and the place is cheap when you figure in a full breakfast provided. Some waiters (two) are grumpy and supercilious, but the rest are fine. The mother's owner presides from a table in the corner, and she is a bit of a sourpuss. We ate there every day for two weeks and had some great meals, some so-so.
