A very nice hotel located in the center of Isla Colon. Waking distance from convenience stores, bars, discos and local tours offices. The food was great I enjoyed both breakfast and dinners prepared by their chef Jose Alberto. Definitely recommended.

When arriving we had some personal difficulties and talking with the owner he directly upgraded the room and offered help. All in all the stuff is very nice and helpful. Beautiful location on main street with breakfast at the sea. Water taxi just in front of the hotel.
