The hotel has one of the most amazing views of the ocean i’ve Ever seen! The hotel itself is slightly worn down but still very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. We would love to come back and stay someday!

Excellent hotel - will definitely stay again
I was here on a business trip. I don't think the current reviews really reflect how nice this hotel is. Pros: The location is second to none, absolutely beautiful by the ocean, incredible views and balconies in room. My room was all brand new and updated bathroom. Everything clean and fresh decor. Staff were very nice, breakfast was good with beautiful views and a nice bar. They give you a token for a free welcome drink on check in which was nice. Location is by the old town which is walking distance to beautiful pedestrianised colonial streets and lots of restaurants. Free bikes too.They let us check in early at no extra cost. Cons: Check in was very slow - over 30 mins. It would be nice to have tea/coffee facilities in room. Everything else super - will definitely stay again. Very reasonable room rates.

Good hotel, but barely 4 stars
My girlfriend and I stayed two nights at this hotel. One of the big advantages for those who are driving is the ample parking space due to them having a convention center. The outside pool is somewhat small but located directly overlooking the ocean, therefore great view, but the no one really uses the pool since most people, including ourselves opted to go to the beach which is quite closeby. The hotel has 10 bicycles that you can borrow at no cost which again, is great, the bicycles are in excellent condition and come with a lock. The check-in at the hotel was quite fast and convenient, although there is not a lot of english speaking staff for those who do not speak Spanish. The rooms was really the downside of this hotel. They are somewhat old and dated. On the plus side they are clean, they give you two bottles of water and a welcome drink at check-in (but in Chile this is almost all hotels) and the wifi works quite well. The washroom were again somewhat old, old shower head, a swinging glass to stop the water from going all over the bathroom. Another downside is the walls are paperthin. We could hear everything going on in the hallways and even the music from downstairs (we were on the 7th floor) via the balcony (with the door closed). Overall a good hotel and well-priced, but don't expect a high 4 star hotel, it's more like a low 4 star hotel.
