In Spring 2003 we installed phones in every room so that you can be connected to the folks back home more easily. Our guests have indicated that they prefer not to have TVs in the rooms, and that they prefer to watch the big screen TV in the El Pescador Bar instead. This is a sociable hotel and the bar is a far more sociable place to watch television than alone in your room! Also in the El Pescador Bar, we have computers linked by satellite (for lightning-quick access) to the Internet for your use.
