The hotels beauty is only outmatched by the personality of the staff. Pool is the centerpiece of a four hundred year old convent now converted to the Sofitel. The rooms are adequate and well outfitted. Negative reviews in Tripadvisor stem from the slight musty smell in-rooms (any tropical climate has this....its very difficult to fight the humidity...perhaps they add air deoderizers?) , but they are very clean, luxuriously outfitted, nice showers, and super comfortable beds. The staff leaves treats like coconut candies and Evian in evenings. Most rooms face the open pool area in the Republican section (newer area). The Colonial section housing the original convent has a small church, two restaurants, business center, meeting rooms, and a beautiful garden with fountains.
