Simple B&B with good location
Posted Oct 6, 2013
I stayed at Casa Escano 2 nights in September 2013. The first night, there was a mix-up with our booking, and we got a room with 1 queen and 1 single bed instead of 2 queens. The hotel offered to give us a small refund, which we were pleasantly surprised at, but declined as the room had no trouble fitting an extra bed for the 4 of us.
Staff are friendly and helpful, from showing us how to make 'towel animals' while setting up the extra bed, to calling the restaurant we were intending to have dinner at to make sure that they were still open, and reminding us to keep our jewellery before heading out for the night - this is important as street kids seem quite dangerous! We experienced them trying to steal from us the following night that we forgot to keep our stuff in the hotel.
The room interiors are spacious, and mattresses are clean and comfortable, although the beds are a tad old and squeaky.
Food at the restaurant is excellent! We had buffet and ala carte breakfast there for the 2 mornings(included for our room), and also tried their lunch.
The hotel is also very conveniently located, and is very close to the port and downtown tourist sites. Although not all taxi drivers know of it, they seem familiar with the address and with 'Vacation' nearby.
