a charming place to enjoy one of the nicest colonial cities....
Unique Quality: gardens and swimming pool in an old typical mansion
Directions: in an old convent (1642),with colonial style,close to santo domingo's church.
As is typical with an Antiguan property (with its 10 ft. walls and imposing doors), your jaw will drop when you cross the threshold from the street. You are greeted with lush foliage that will lead you to the front desk. Once at the front desk, you may feel the need to genuflect and make the sign-of-the-cross (even if you're not Catholic), because it does resemble an altar and seems to command reverance. But the staff will treat you like a personal guest and will provide excellent service. The rooms are decorated in a colonial Spanish motif with big, dark furniture that is very comfortable....for $80 dbl, you can't go wrong.
Unique Quality: This is a top-of-the-line hotel (at least 4 star) that is built on the grounds of the Santo Domingo Monastery. Gorgeous grounds, including pool, include easy access to the ruins of the monastery. Excellent service.

Is it possible to take a tour of Casa Santo Domingo if you aren't a guest there? How would one go about doing this?
Thanks for your help. Did you use a tour operator of any kind while in Antigua or did you just wander around? What would you recommend?
Thanks so much for your help! Maybe we'll just wander around on our own. :)
