    Enjoyed the hotel, but too noisy in the mornings and sleep was disturbed. The hotel staff was very helpful in providing places we should go and places that were safe. Breakfast was average, and was good.More

    Is there parking available for guests?

    Answer
    Response from SilviaVargas | Property representative |
    Hello!!! Yes, we have a parking available although it has a cost $12 per day. But we also have one space in our property, and if it is available for the nights you need we can reserve it for you free of charge.

    Response from SilviaVargas | Property representative |
    Hello. The transfer from the airport is $35 up to 4 pax. The time that ride will take depends on the hour you need it, it could be around 40 minutes to 1 hour.
