This upscale hotel is located in Santa Elena just off the causeway on the shore of the lake, with a great view of Flores. The rooms feature contemporary decor, and more modern amenities than you'll find anywhere else in town. The bathrooms are even equipped with telephones, and four rooms are truly fitted out for travelers with disabilities. The best rooms are the second-floor rooms with balconies directly fronting the lake. If you don't get one of these, the hotel's waterfront restaurant has a great view and serves good international and local cuisine. There's a relaxing and refreshing pool area, with a separate Jacuzzi. This place offers a free airport shuttle, as well as free paddleboats for use on the lake, and has a helpful tour desk and concierge.
