San Rafael

Location: The San Rafael is conveniently located on a residential street in Antigua just steps from the excitement of Fifth Avenue and its fine artisan shops, restaurants, and galleries.

Rooms: 125 rooms and suites

Facilities: Restaurants, bar, pool, gym, spa, sauna, jacuzzi and museum.

Activities: Sight seeing tours in and around Antigua and of course the exhibitions in the hotel.

Children: Children are welcome.

Our Opinion: This is a beautiful, large hotel located in the ruins of a 17th Century Monastery, decorated with old colonial charm, with extensive gardens and a large pool. There is also a small colonial museum and a traditional candle factory on the grounds. It is a good option, but the hotel can get busy with conferences, weddings and events.
