I'm being kind by giving a 2 star rating for this hotel. I don't understand the good reviews posted. 26 of us stayed here for three nights recently and, to a person, we thought the Antiqua Miraflores was one of the worst hotels we had ever stayed in. Ads say the rooms are air conditioned, but most of us did not have A/C. After complaining about room temperature of over 85 degrees, I was moved to another room with a teeny A/C unit mounted on the wall. Then, I had to return to the front desk to get a remote control for the unit; and had to sign a form that I would pay $30 if I lost the remote. First room had no hair dryer; second one had a brand new hair dryer that had a European type plug that did not fit any electrical outlet in the room. Safe in room doesn't come with a key; you have to sign forms at the front desk for a key and it looked like a standard key that would fit any of the room safes so I didn't trust the safe for my valuables.
Breakfast was a nightmare. They have a teeny restaurant area that seats about 25 people and overflow for guests was wherever we could find a place to sit. There was one person cooking in the kitchen and a very limited menu. Everything is cooked to order and servings were very skimpy. Typically a guest receives one egg scrambled with a piece of toast and coffee. No meats or fruits or any other options, and no "seconds" allowed under any circumstances. Dinner worked the same way except I had to stick my head in the kitchen and tell the chef what I wanted to place an order; there didn't appear to be any wait person working at night.
Rooms didn't have anything for storage except a homemade kiosk that is made from wood that smelled to high heaven. It was clean inside but I did not put anything away in it for fear that my clothes would smell like the wood.
Bathroom was clean with plenty of towels. Bed was comfortable and sheets were nice but bed had a bedspread that was a muted sand/peach/pink flower color and it was old and worn.
Only one person at the front desk speaks English fluently, and she was overwhelmed by the size of our group and the handling of things such as hair dryers, safe keys, and A/C remotes. This hotel has WIFI, but to get reception it's best to sit in the common area near the front desk. They also supply two desktop computers that are free for guests to use.
The front yard and entry look like a nice hotel, but farther back in the building there are construction areas (where new dining room will be added) and rotting wood showing in several places.
Definitely not a good experience.
