For starters, The Good:
This place is walking distance from the airport; however, they provide a shuttle. It really has a decent breakfast buffet which includes fresh eggs, fresh creme, pork belly bacon, sausage, rice and beans, two juice options, custom omelets, bread selections, just to name a few. The breakfast outdoor sitting area is very peaceful although very close to the road. They play American romance movie theme songs. The grounds are amazing. There is even a VERY nice covered area for event, maybe a wedding. There are two pool areas. The rooms are nice and cozy. It is great for a girls weekend. The staff is almost overly polite. The tv has at least one English channel. I stayed in two separate rooms. I checked out and returned the next day. The rooms were very clean. There are a few side of the road restaurants the locals use along with a few shops within one mile of the facility. There is also a Subway in that area. The airport had restaurants including McDonalds. The bar has good food as well. No one ask for tips. Remember $1 is 38 Cordobas. Go ahead and tip the people. $20 USD will feed you a week if you eat at the local restaurants. The facility is constantly being cleaned.
The Bad: Most of the staff has the worst English. I asked for a face cloth and I kept receiving a full sized body towel to shower with. The hot water is horrendous. You can not drink the hotel's water and they have a sign on the sinks reminding you. The bottled water they provide is hot and slimy. You can't ask for ice, because it is made with the water. If I can't drink the water can I swim or shower in it? I am still stressing over that concept. No pool for me. Shower time limited. My skin has pores. The bar food is overpriced and charged in USD. The car service is VERY expensive. Take your drivers license, passport, and a major credit card and rent a car for the weekend for under $100 usd. On my second day I woke up to hammering. Why are you hammering before 8am? They do not apply you points to your BW account nor do they except company discount codes.
The good really outweighs the bad. It is really clean. Bring your own water (there is a gas station right down the street. You can get a case for less than $2 usd. The price is awesome. I will come back again.
Things to Remember: Get bottled water, have you own face cloth (wash cloth/wash rag), local food is down the street to the right of the hotel past the first gas station. less
