Location is very good. Staff is friendly. One has to climb 3 levels. No hot water. AC was dripping. Lot of noise from nearby restaurants late night. But expensive for the amenities as there is no break fast. Staying at Boca Grande is definitely a...More

Our room was private. I can't think where you could get a garden view. There is a rooftop balcony with some plants and a view of the water afar off, but no rooms opened unto that. I'd ask for a picture. That is the only... More

A short inexpensive cab ride to really good beaches. Not a walkout-and-you're-there location.
