    I loved the room it was very clean and cute also it was quiet and relaxing, and the staff was great! Highly recommend. The only tricky part is parking but everything else great.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The hotel is rather small and most rooms lack privacy since windows overlook common areas, hallways, etc. Moreover, during our stay, from the moment we checked in at 4pm until after 10pm the whole hotel, including the bar, pool, and even inside our hotel room was overwhelmed with the loud screaming and laughing of a large group of drunk, non-mask-wearing women in the hotel bar area. It is very disappointing that our stay was ruined by this out-of-control group. The hotel staff could have either control the behavior of its loud guests or (b) warn other guests that their stay would coincide with a large, loud and health-risky event so that guests can decide whether to cancel or reschedule their stay. Other than this, our ocean-view room was great but we could not use any other areas of the hotel due to the issue highlighted above.

    A great boutique hotel with ocean views. Helpful and friendly staff, great pool, and excellent decor. The record players in each room are a fun touch.

    The hotel is pretty and nice but was deeply disappointed by their dining menu and the quality of the food.

    Beautifully designed hotel with pool and view

    This hotel has been beautifully designed with clear attention to even small details. The front doors and all furniture is beautiful wood and each room is equipped with a record player and old records. We probably got the worst room in the back with a window to the street so it was a bit noisy and dark but I’d highly recommend the front rooms with balconies. The employees were very nice and we could text them at any time with requests. The morning coffee and scones were not great but otherwise the stay was wonderful

    The pool is not heated!

    We wanted to love Hotel Joaquin but we did not. Due to covid, we cancelled our original Christmas travel plans and decided on a last minute, one night staycation at Hotel Joaquin instead. Our plan was to spend the day in the pool (as the ocean temp has gotten a little too cold). We live a 5 min walk from the property so checked it out before we booked. Frank let us take a quick look at the garden and pool - both are gorgeous. He mentioned Ciel (#29) was one of the best rooms they had. Later that night I phoned to double check that the pool was heated - Gabi confirmed that it was - before booking Ciel. After checking in, we headed straight to the pool - it was very cold. After a few attempts to get in I went to ask about the heating. The manager informed me that the heat wouldn't be turned on today or tomorrow. Actually, it won't be back on until February. February! I mentioned that I had specifically asked about it before booking - he said that all staff had been notified that heat was off through an email communication. Ironically, as we were discussing this, behind him, a staff member was confirming to a guest on the phone that the pool was heated! I still feel deceived. After sunset I decided to take a warm bath (in lieu of the pool) and was shocked to find a lot of hair in the bath tub. It was not mine or my husband's. We wanted to love Hotel Joaquin but left disappointed after spending $420 (incl. $45 resort fee) on an experience that didn't deliver.

    This is definitely one of my top favorites! I can’t wait to try their other hotel in Palm Springs (I understand they have one their too). I had the perfect room with a pool side view. What I loved about it most was how secure and tranquil it was. I will be back but for longer period of time. *****
