Hotel El Convento
Atmospheric 17th century convent transformed into an enchanting, art-filled hotel with landscaped gardens enclosed by a tranquil courtyard.
Hotel El Convento, an atmospheric former convent enjoys a prime location, just a stone's throw from the main square and cathedral. It retains a sense of the city’s colonial past without being stuffy, mixing a striking, carefully chosen collection of antiques with more modern furnishings and works of art.
Room décor is rustic yet contemporary with white or exposed brick walls, wood-beamed ceilings and cool terracotta tiled floors. Many original architectural features of the 17th century building have been retained and the simple white and jade colour scheme allows them to shine.
Landscaped gardens lie within the confines of the large courtyard (once the convent’s cloister), with grand palm trees rising high above the tiled roofs and shady colonnaded walkways. There is a small pool overlooked by tropical greenery, and a pleasant restaurant and bar area.
