This is a beautiful, historic hotel, that also has all the modern conveniences. It looks and feels like a movie set. It was immaculately clean and maintained, and the service was impeccable. The on-site restaurant was also good and convenient, and the rooftop patios, gym, and pool were wonderful. We had an interior courtyard room and it was a quiet...

Staff courteous, rooms neats, pool on the roof, luxurious decor, this is the hotel Morales. It offers a good value for money. Try the restaurant for its mexican specialities but not for the meat, if you are used to great quality filet mignon. Maids are very efficient, but despite of it, there was a persistent bad smell in our room.

I picked the hotel for the hundreds of reviews praising it. I am the kind that reads as much as possible about a hotel before staying there if possible. The staff were very professional and cordial.

Why does nobody wrote about the 'snackbar smell' on Tripadvisor? The whole hotel smells like it. We slept in room 131 and the smell was horrible. When you are looking for an extra portion 'patatas' switch on the ventilation system in the bathroom. Besides of the smell the room wasn't clean. First it looks clean, but when you want to...
