Hostel Review: Hostal Casa Baluarte, Cartagena (Colombia)

“Pretty good amenities for the price” Considering the low cost, was expecting much worse (had been to a hostel earlier that was $5 cheaper/night but had no toilet seats, no shower head…just a pipe in the wall and sheets that looked way past their expiration date) but was pleasantly surprised as to the quaint environment. ...

Hotel Review: Tower House Suites, Panama City (Panama)

“Pleasant surprise!” I must admit that based on previous reviews and photos available, I wasn’t really expecting much, but I had found a pretty good price for a two night stay. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the room I was provided with was much different than the rooms I’d seen in other photos (that ...

Hotel Review: Outrigger Aina Nalu, Maui (Hawaii)

“My new home away from home” From the wonderful staff, to the awesome facilities, and of course its great location (a few short blocks from the heart of downtown Lahaina), the Aina Nalu has really done an amazing job in making sure their guests feel right at home.

Hotel Review: Renaissance Jaragua Hotel and Casino, Santo Domingo (DR)

“Good service, but rooms could use a facelift” As stated above, the standout for this hotel is in its services. All the workers that I encountered at the Jaragua were quite friendly and more than willing to assist in any way possible. The primary reason I’m giving it 3, rather than 4 out of 5 ...

Hotel Review: Be Live Hamaca Beach Resort, Boca Chica (DR)

“For the budget-minded A.I. experience” One thing I realized during my stay was that your experience can vary greatly based on the room you are provided. I stayed on the 4th fl in a “garden view” room and found it to have very basic décor, with no lock on the safe, rust in the tub, ...
