This boutique hotel has been developed from a former house. Rooms are large. There is a patio pool and roof top seating. Breakfasts are served in the courtyard and prepared to order. It has a good location in the old city and only a short walk to the Cathedral and sea front.

We stayed one night and were very pleased with the hotel and the service. The rooms combine beautiful colonial features with modern amenities. The staffing is caring and very active. We had a lovely dinner at the restaurant! The only small drawback was that our room towards the patio was rather loud at night. Still would recommend staying there.

The facility and rooms are stunning. It really feels like going back to the Spanish colonial time. The rooms are big and well decorated. The 3 stars are mainly due to the hit and miss for a hotel of this class. At breakfast we had to ask for jam and for bread. Very basic breakfast selections. We had dinner at...

The communal areas were very attractive, but the (standard) room we had was quite basic, dark and unappealing. The original room we were allocated (same description) had a blocked drain in the shower which flooded the bedroom as soon as my husband had a shower. We insisted on changing our room and were allocated another one, which looked the same...
