You can enjoy this hotel if you know how to speak Spanish. Unfortunately, in our experience, we constantly had to deal with staff who couldn't speak a word of English. Entire hotel had a total of 3 employees (there could be more, but we didn't see anyone else). They worked at the reception, the restaurant and did some of the cleaning as well. Although they seemed like friendly people, we had trouble with very basic things as getting an extra pillow, ordering an omelette or figuring out what they offer for breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, it ends at 10 am and you cannot even get a tea after this time. Even if you go to breakfast on time (say 9:30), you may not be able to eat anything because you cannot order food as you cannot find a waitress. If you try to go to the kitchen yourself, they kick you out speaking in Spanish. So the language barrier is really no joke. We stayed in the most expensive suite. We had the feeling that it was a nice suite when the hotel was first built. But the state we stayed in was a mess. They had the cheapest plastic tables on the terrace, cheap plastic shower curtains although the bathroom had a shower and a bath tub, wall paintings were falling apart everywhere and various signs (ie no smoking) were printed on paper taped to the walls. My overall feeling was that the owner of the hotel left management to the 3 employees and disappeared.
