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.

... thought we’d give it a go. Our minibus left at 0830am in the morning, to take us about 1 hour out of the city to the volcano itself. Once we arrived, we had to dump all of our belongings in a locker, and climb a rather precarious looking set of old wooden steps to the top of the mound. Inside the volcano was a huge square pool of mud, and various people in there looking slightly worried. I climbed down a ladder into the pit, and ...
as the driver showed 2 pirated DVDs. We went straight to our hotel which was a
few 100 metres away from the old walled city. We went with our guide for an
orientation walk around the old city which was a great time to do this as the
residents emerged in the coolness of the night and the old town looked its best
lit up. By the time we had finished it was near midnight but we were excited
about exploring the city on our own tomorrow.
