This hotel is absolutely beautiful and the people who work there could not be better! The only reason I gave this hotel 4 stars instead of 5 is that there's no air conditioning and we had to request a fan because our room was quite hot and there are no screens on the doors so you can't leave them open...

First, may I say this is a sprawling property with multiple locations. It is truly beautiful there. So beautiful that everyone in town wants to have a wedding there. This is understandable. What is not understandable is how poor their management staff is. If you book a higher budget room, I can see how one could have a nice stay.... More

The hotel is very good locations with a good view of the amazing volcano. The staff is good. But not reservation in weekend because there are 2 o 3 weddings and your room will be in the second area very simple, small and a little abandoned. Make sure your room is in the main area by the pool.

Hotel like this amaze me. On a stone road in the middle of Antigua, narrow sidewalks, the walls all look the same--until you step inside. Wow! This place is gorgeous. Outstanding gardens and grounds--a little bit of paradise. This is an excellent place to stay in Antigua. Rooms, service, restaurant--all great.

This hotel is a great center of operations when you want to visit Antigua because is only minutes away from the main points of interest including ruins, museums, hiking, restaurants and bars, at the same time the hotel offers a good variety of activities and services to pamper you while you are there, if affordable to you greatly recommended
