Excellent hotel - will definitely stay again
I was here on a business trip. I don't think the current reviews really reflect how nice this hotel is. Pros: The location is second to none, absolutely beautiful by the ocean, incredible views and balconies in room. My room was all brand new and updated bathroom. Everything clean and fresh decor. Staff were very nice, breakfast was good with beautiful views and a nice bar. They give you a token for a free welcome drink on check in which was nice. Location is by the old town which is walking distance to beautiful pedestrianised colonial streets and lots of restaurants. Free bikes too.They let us check in early at no extra cost. Cons: Check in was very slow - over 30 mins. It would be nice to have tea/coffee facilities in room. Everything else super - will definitely stay again. Very reasonable room rates.

Good hotel, but barely 4 stars
My girlfriend and I stayed two nights at this hotel. One of the big advantages for those who are driving is the ample parking space due to them having a convention center. The outside pool is somewhat small but located directly overlooking the ocean, therefore great view, but the no one really uses the pool since most people, including ourselves opted to go to the beach which is quite closeby. The hotel has 10 bicycles that you can borrow at no cost which again, is great, the bicycles are in excellent condition and come with a lock. The check-in at the hotel was quite fast and convenient, although there is not a lot of english speaking staff for those who do not speak Spanish. The rooms was really the downside of this hotel. They are somewhat old and dated. On the plus side they are clean, they give you two bottles of water and a welcome drink at check-in (but in Chile this is almost all hotels) and the wifi works quite well. The washroom were again somewhat old, old shower head, a swinging glass to stop the water from going all over the bathroom. Another downside is the walls are paperthin. We could hear everything going on in the hallways and even the music from downstairs (we were on the 7th floor) via the balcony (with the door closed). Overall a good hotel and well-priced, but don't expect a high 4 star hotel, it's more like a low 4 star hotel.

El hotel muy bueno. Solo le falta mantencion en alguna áreas como el baño. En general todo bien salvo el último día. Era 30 de diciembre y estábamos en la terraza de la piscina que estaba toda desordenada porque estaban instalando tarimas para la fiesta del Año Nuevo. La gente tenía que andar cambiándose en un espacio todo desordenado y lleno de trabajadores. Les pedí que no trabajaran encima nuestro martillando. Hable con el jefe pero siguieron. Al final nos hicieron corrernos a otro lado poco cómodo. Eso me pareció pésimo. Si van a hacer una fiesta que se preocupen de trabajar de noche y que durante el día no haya molestias para los pasajeros. Es lo mínimo para cualquier hotel y más para uno se 5 estrellas
