The Watermark Hotel And Spa is more modern than its sister hotel, La Mansión del Rio and has a staff that spoils guests.

  • Great location on the river, beautiful decor and our balcony had a nice view of a building adjacent to us. The lobby was very inviting and comfortable, the lunch service at the pool was awesome and the spa outstanding, the concierge was very attentive and helped us plan the following day. Room was very spacious and the restaurant Pesca was fantastic. Dinner was good also.

    This hotel is not worth the money you will spend.
