This is the second year I've stayed at this hotel and Frank Heredia, the manager, was kind, receptive and even though I was there only one night before, he remembered me!
I got a room at the front of the hotel and had an absolute blast. Those rooms have a window that looks out on the ferry landing in front. And I'll take poetic license when I say that I felt like a girl standing on a balcony, waiting in a small Mediterranean village, watching the people and boats come and go. The option I had had a fridge to keep those bottles of bubbly as well as my French cheeses cold.
Granted, the curtains and the bed spreads weren't probably from this decade (and I actually saw in an older photo of this hotel a bed cover that was now the curtain in my room *cringe*). And sure, the little TV room at the bottom of the steps is a little more than dated and can hardly be considered "island decor", the merit of this hotel is the location and the view.
Frank told me that the web page wasn't running because they're going to be renovating. (*sigh of relief*)
Outside the room, right in front of my window, was a little area with a table and chairs where I spent the last hours of 2010, drinking, eating and having a very lovely time.
It's a low-key hotel, close to everything and quite underrated. If you want no-nonsense and a comfortable place to stay, this is definitely your option. If you're looking for luxury, this is definitely NOT your place.
