This hotel was rumored to have been built on an old execution site for the Spanish Army, and many believe the soldiers who died on the spot continue to linger here in spirit.

  • true ghost

    My friend and I stayed at the hotel in 2016 and she saw a tiny Creole woman in old clothes standing under the large painting in the Foyer. She was looking up at a man on a boat being rowed by a boy, and a black cat. My friend got coffee by the door and when she looked back the woman was gone. No one had seen her but my friend. Turns out, the Miser in the painting was the builder of the 5 houses, and owner of the space now a hotel. Which once burned down killing several creole workers, he was known as cheap, hence the boat painting based on a story that he was too cheap to pay for the Ferry. That Hotel is haunted by a very real story and many ghosts, and it all can be verified. We had no prior knowledge.

    We stayed with my husband in big corner room with long balcony. Second night he waked up in the middle of the night and noticed someting in the pillow, but turn it other side and sleeped again. In the morning we noticed big blood mark in the pillow, but my husbands face is clear and without any marks of blood.

  • pinned to the bed

    was pinned on my back twice in approx 30 minutes by a dark grey apparition. It happened as soon as my wife left the room. Initially I felt the weight on my legs and when i sat up it threw me back and I was helpless. I managed to free an arm and throw it off.It returned 5 mins later and did the same again. Never ever believed in ghosts until now

  • Haunted

    My husband and I stayed in room 119. One wall is mirrored from floor to ceiling. The day we checked in, we changed into our swimsuits to lay by the pool for awhile. The room looked immaculate. Very clean, nothing on the mirror by way of handprints, etc. After a few hours by the pool, we came back to our room and there were handprints all over the bottom part of the mirror about 2-3 feet off the ground. The handprints were small.
