Wonderful location

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and fresh. Pool and jacuzzi in good clean condition. Very close to two specific attractions and the trolley stops right in the hotel's parking area to take you to all other attraction areas. Close to Villano Beach by car. We highly recommend this hotel.

Great Location

This hotel was in a great location. Room was clean and hotel staff was great. It was one of the stops on the city tour so the trolley came by every few hours.
