I have arrived early at the hotel Porta in Antigua Guatemala for check in and have a suite upgrade with my Iprefer elite membership.
Very nice people at reception Lisset and juan jose . My reservation had not shown up in there system as I made my reservation late last night and they are sold out. I informed Juan I was an iprefer elite and wanted to know what my welcome gift is and he explained it would be fruit cheese and wines in my room. I'm happy with that. He was very helpful in speaking to the manager and me being upgraded to a very nice roomy suite.
I am now just finishing a very good lunch in the hotel restaurant. I had the spaghetti with beef pork and chicken plus the 6 jumbo shrimp on a bed of rice with vegetables. For dessert i had tres leeches. The spaghetti was very tasty and the shrimp was good. Not too fond of the tres leches. Waitresses and waiters very nice but a little confusing since each serves everyone it seems, but I have no complaints with service with a smile.
The room is nice and spacious and the stone masons did a very good job with the design. The sleep was a knock out and if you don't have an alarm or wake up call, you may not. Very comfortable bed and even though my room was facing the main street I slept like a happy baby.
This was a very short but impressive stay and I will be back and recommend to my mother and all of her friends who like to travel alone and in friend groups.
Remember to join the iprefer network and earn points on every stay to be used for future stays and or paying part of you final bill.
Special thanks to Albert ,Lisset and Juan Jose ,Plus the female manager who came from the back to help with the iprefer award coupons. She knows her job and I will add her name in the edit of this review. Guisella medrano is the managers name and she is special.
I will Always return to their hotel.
