It´s a good option. Excellent food and the room is good. You can use the same services in Hotel El Dorado three blocks away and near to the beach. In higher floors you will be rewarded with a wonderful view

We asked for a room as high as possible and were rewarded with a corner room on the penultimate floor with magnificent views of the sea.
