My work brought me here 3 times in the month of July. Hotel is attractive. Service, on the whole, pretty terrible. Think SLOW. Slow check-in. Slow check-out. Slow internet. Slow restaurant and bar service (The one exception was Alejandro Andrade, one of the wait staff. He was phenomenal!) Nice location. Just wish it was better managed.
