    Poor 2.0
    5 stars only in bizzaro world.
    I would like to meet the Joker who gave this place 5 stars. This may have been 5 stars in the 1960s, but definitely nowhere close now. The rooms where in poor condition, with headboards that banged against the wall with the slightest move, waking you up - with an AC louder then the boiler room of a freight train, and with NO HOT WATER for half the times attempting a shower. I've never heard of the Ritz Carlton (a true 5 star hotel) not having hot water. Anyways, do yourself a favor, book the Holiday inn down the street, costs less and is in much better shape than this place. Wish I could've gotten a refund after the first night and booked somewhere else, but unfortunately with hotels.com you are pretty much SOL if you prepay and don't like the place.

    Pleased from service, disappointed from condition
    Rooms rather old and not like a 5 star hotel. E.g. bathtub had a really big leap, fittings felt off.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Excellent hotel and amenities.
    Nicest of the 4 hotels I stayed at in the Bocagrande area. The master suite is well worth the price thanks to the 2 person jetted bathtub. The couples chocolate massage was very fun and romantic. Location was perfect with restaurants up and down the street.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Good hotel
    The room was comfortable and clean. The staff was fantastic. The bar has by far the best mojitos and cocteles. The beer selection was good as well. Checkout process was very slow.

    Great hotel in Bocagrande... close to Old City
    Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is ideal for the beach and for restaurants. Hotel is clean, outdoor pool on 5th floor is a great little haven. Rooms are clean and well appointed, but just a little dated. Wifi throughout the hotel is a nice plus. Nevertheless, I would gladly stay here again.
