My family and I were here for a week's stay. Our rooms were located in the newest section of the hotel accessed via an underground tunnel. Each room had two beds, a tv with 99 channels, a desk, a safe, an iron and ironing board. The bathroom had a tub/shower combination and a sink with shaving mirror and hair dryer....

The best place to swing in Antigua, the atmosphere is so nice, the food is cheap and you will definitely enjoy the pool in the very center of Antigua. To use the pool it cost around 12$ witch is worth it to pay.

This hotel was well located, buffet meals were good, rooms were sufficient but not generous. The hotel itself was spread out over 3 locations and during our stay we had to use a "tunnel" (under the street) to access the restaurant. Restaurant was nice, open air, had an outside seating area and gardens. Since Antigua is a colonial style city...

Avoid the odd number rooms 111 down to 105 as they sit next to a very noisy street and you will hear truck noises all night. service is hit or miss, especially in the hotel restaurant and that is what I experienced outside the hotel at restaurants in town . You also will be hit with an "IMP TURISMC "...
