The hotel was clean, somewhat new... it would have been nice if the rooms had a balcony as there is a pretty good view. The restaurant was a free buffet for breakfast and dinner was extra. Same buffet every night was disappointing.

Let’s see - where do I even start. For the once that have been in San Andrez, they will understand. For others, this is one of the newest hotel on the island. Room 1110 is the best on the property. It’s a suite with beautiful view. The service is horrible. Not only at this hotel but in all other institutions, minus the restaurant La Regatta. Best service and food on the island. Why bad service: no extra towels, no extra room keys, no food menu in the room, some nights no water in the bathroom - the list goes on. The staff is not the brightest, don’t blame them. All minimum wage. Basically, you just learn to not ask and stay quiet. Complaining to staff goes nowhere. All together, the island is so beautiful that all these things become irrelevant.

I made a reservation here on the recommendation of a friend, prior to reading any of the reviews. While others may have encountered cleanliness issues I can unequivocally say that I saw no such issue at all. My room was spotless and properly cleaned daily. Every person that I encountered was delightful, friendly, and helpful. It's true, however, that the wifi is dreadful and intermittent, even in the lobby. The hotel is not on the beach which is either a good or bad thing depending on what you want in terms of immediate access and noise levels -- there is always a lot of activity on the street in the evenings. But the rooms have great water views. I'd definitely return.

We arrived to this hotel in San Andres Isla early and the staff would not let us check in early. Then they were running behind and our room was not ready until 1.5 hours after check-in time. So we waited at the hotel lobby for a total of 3 hours. Ridiculous!! Then on two occasions our room toilet broke and they waited hours to fix it. So we had to add water to the toilet for it to flush. Horrible!! Then the staff would not give us toilet paper or clean towels until we called room service. The room was never cleaned unless we asked. The location was ok. Seemed to be in a relatively safe neighborhood. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport. About a 15 min walk to the beach. I had a terrible experience in this hotel. I would not recommend it.
