A pleasant hotel within a short walk from the centre of town. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds, large TV and great views of the surrounding area. Mini bar and safe in rooms but no kettle/tea making facilities. Bathroom has bath with a shower. Breakfast was a standard continental type with a reasonable selection and scrambled egg also available. A small 12.5m swimming pool was great for a morning dip and didn't seem to get busy. Didn't try the restaurant for food but there are many good restaurants within a short walk towards the square in town.
This hotel is fine. Mid price range and not fancy but has all facilities for the price. Breakfast a bit boring (unless you like scrambled egg) and evening meal ok but many good restaurants with a bit better choice nearby. Helpful staff. Overall, a good choice with great sea views from most rooms.
The hotel have all the service you need, good restaurant, confortable beds and spacius room.Staff very friendly. You can go walking to city center, and the street with a lote of restaurants. Without street noice. You can see the rising sun by the sea
Spent a night at beginning and end of a holiday to view pumas. Not to far from the airport and the room was very pleasant with good views over the water. Dinner tasty with good selection at breakfast.
Even taking into account the language difficulties, I did not find the front desk person friendly or helpful. Upon arrival, he tried to take credit card payment although the room had been prepaid by the tour company for two nights. Instead of giving me a quiet room as requested, I was put in a room where traffic noise was loudest. Finally after many tries and the intervention of a staff member not at the front desk, I was given another room at the back. It was attractive and big BUT poorly maintained. A window once opened could not be closed; the safety deposit box did not work (staff said someone would come up but no one arrived), the pillow cases were too small for the pillows and the ends stuck out, the heat would not turn off so the room was uncomfortably hot, there was a disgusting brown smudge on the inside of the bedspread, hair in bathtub, and when I went to hang up my jacket, the wooden hanger was broken and the nail that was sticking out cut my finger. The icing on the cake was loosing my fleece which I believe I left in the first room and never got back. The only reason I have not given this hotel a the lowest rating, was that I was changed (again) to a room that was adequate, the location across from the water was nice, and the dining room was fine for my needs. But this hotel could be so much better.
Hotel rooms are clean and spacious ,for this three star hotel I believe ,staffs friendly and efficient, ,gave us correctly wake up call at 3 AM to catch our flight back . About 15 minutes from airport , good central location, on sea shore, in this small town/city .hotel offers dinner and breakfast but in comparison to Aregentina Brazil Bolivia or Peru hotels in our experience generally very simple food ,do not know why. Small portions in dinner ,breakfast nothing exciting always sliced white cheese and cold ham.
I stayed here between climbing trips to Antarctica and Argentina. I'd left a duffel bag with gear for the second mountain here while I was in Antarctica and came back to find it missing. They offered no help even after we confirmed on their security cameras that it had been in their custody and they must have lost it. After paying myself to replace my gear I finished the second mountain to find emails saying they had accidentally loaded it onto a government research vessel that was in Antarctica. Once the vessel landed they were supposed to send my bag back to me. This was over a month ago and not only have they not sent it, but they've stopped responding to my emails and their phone lines won't work. In summary they couldn't care less about my problems or the fact that they effectively stole thousands of dollars of equipment from me.
Pass though here twice a year on work business,very friendly staff ,always helpful.Evening meals good value and very enjoyable .The hotel is easy to locate with a five minute walk into the town square.The rooms are clean with a comfortable bed,if you are lucky you get a room with a sea view.Free wifi on each floor.
Hotel has thieves working for them! iPad was stolen while bag was in the hotel's "secure" baggage storage, for which no luggage tags were provided. No offer for compensation was provided, and their apology was lacklustre. Do not trust these people with your bags! Spent 45 minutes trying to call them and they said they were "too busy" to respond to my repeated inquiries at 10:00 PM.
This hotel is a nice standard 4* hotel, in Europe we might say 3* superior. The lobby is not so big and the rooms are OK in size but look tired. The restaurant offers medium food, we had breakfast and dinner there, nothing very special. The hotel is clean and the staff is polite but bit slow. The advantage of the hotel is that it is in walking distance from the city centre and the main square, shops and restaurants and that it is in front of the sea. It is OK staying there for one night, nothing more!
