Incorrect Photos

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 19, 2013

When we arrived we were surprised by the tiny entrance and broken tiles to the 1st floor reception (with non operational air conditioning). The whole place is shabby but what hit us most was that the swimming pool, the gym, the elegant dining room & large conference room shown on the website DID NOT EXIST, the receptionist told us with a smirk, she also informed us that many visitors complained about the misleading photos. The room were given # 302 had no minibar as advertised and the a/c only worked on slow speed making it useless with the poorly fitting doors and windows, when trying the wi-fi the signal was too weak to function. There is no security and the area is a no-go area after dark. When we finally got hold of the Manager he was unhelpful and aggressive.so we left. There were signs apologizing for the mess during renovations had we learnt later had been there for months without any improvements,

Directions: downtown near malecon

Credit Card Fraud

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 12, 2007

On August 14, 2007 staff at La Fontana used our credit card number to illegally purchase nearly $6000 of airplane tickets. In more than 20 years of travel in Latin America, this is the first time I have been subject to such fraud. TRAVELLERS SHOULD AVOID THIS HOTEL!!!
