Hotel Islazul Elguea
Being focused on serious medical tourism, it has none of the flickering candles, fragrant scents, or other romantic touches that spell (and are essential for) \"success\" for spas elsewhere in the Caribbean. And the setting is hardly auspicious, despite being fed by thermal mineral waters that are the hotel\'s raison d\'etre. This Islazul hotel is located on a section of drab coast, with no scenic beaches nearby. Besides the chance to get a vigorous massage or steep in the therapeutic hot tubs, its sole use is as a way-stop when traveling the north coast highway.
The low-rise property is set in scrubby grounds sparsely landscaped with lawns. The lobby is fitted out with comfy bamboo lounge chairs, and the restaurant is modestly elegant. However, the limited menu can\'t always deliver the goods. The 135 air-conditioned guest rooms are perfectly comfortable for a night\'s stay and have been fitted with bamboo furnishings, satellite TVs, telephones, in-room safes, and small refrigerators. And the bathrooms now boast modern fittings.
