Modest hotel. Clean overall. Not a family hotel. The amount of escorts at the place was outrageous. I was supposed to stay two nights and stayed one night. As a traveler I have never experienced that type of ambience at a hotel.

Just too boring
It was ok, trains runs right next to hotel. Three story, no elevator. The menu is pretty good if you do inclusive, bar is way small. Their sister hotel Castillo has a huge bar etc and you can eat and drink there as well if you stay at Amistad but nobody was there when I walked over one night. For the price I would stay at Sportsmen’s a block away with a full bar and restaurant, it has more to do if you don’t feel like leaving the hotel.

I want to share a wonderful experience with my stay at Hotel La Amistad. It was my first time staying there and I will for certain stay there again. The staff was very friendly and always greeted me by name. Everything was very clean. The food was outstanding for such a small hotel.
