My job as a tour guide has given me a lot of stays at hotels. Pros: great location near the beach although not all rooms are, food in the restaurant but not so much the breakfast, quiet, aircon worked well, safety deposit box, safe feeling Cons: had to climb a steep road to get to the reception and the main street, moldy room, warm but not hot water, poor breakfast, high price for poor room which I’d given a 50$ for and not 100$, semi polite restaurant staff.
We knew the place would be run down but we wanted the beachfront which was so worth it. Luckily we didn't have our room cleaned (so many people reporting theft!!) as we were in the room at the time. The location is amazing and other than a run down hotel and quite a hike up the hill, the room was fine, aircon, tv, wifi at the bar. Breaky was lovely and included. The lady owner was very helpful to us. We thought it was great and so close to the beach. It even has its own beach front sloth.
When we first arrived, we were a little off put because our little cabin had a noisy creature living in the ceiling, however, the staff promptly provided an alternate room after we told them about this. The maintenance crew was out there within the hour to resolve the problem as well! The new room was very nice, bed was comfortable and sheets were very soft. We accidentally locked ourselves out one night and a sweet lady came to let us in the room within minutes. The included breakfast was filling and good, and the wildlife at this location was insane! There's monkeys that roam the property along with lizards and sloths! Was a great experience compared to a hostel we stayed in prior. Great location and friendly staff.
Probably the worst vacation experience of my life. My hands are shaking as i'm writing this. My watch and cash were stolen today from my locked room and the owner/administer of the hotel accused me of lying or misplacing my belongings. This after being told upon arriving late last night, that because of a "computer problem" my bungalow costs $25 more per night. Can you imagine? On top of it all this place is gross (there is some sort of moss or slime on the walls) and weirdly spooky. The wifi doesn't work. The haughty owner of this hotel seems bizarrely proud of running such a despicable establishment. He seems exasperated that i'm complaining about the theft and how he ripped me off last night. Please tell me this whole thing is some sick joke!
perfect location, poor maintenance, live threatening electrics in bathrooms As all the others wrote already, this Hotel would be paradise if reasonably maintained. Rooms, bath, AC (silent) and furniture have been in ok shape and pretty clean (room 24). Beach and garden are just wonderful. There is even a shower close to the beach. The hot water installation is a thread of life. Not because of missing maintenance, just because of the way it is installed. The hot water is prepared in the shower head. The cabling sticks out of the head and wires are connected with rubber tapes (!!!). Feel free to choose between 110V shock or fire. One shower head caught fire in the room below ours, while a lady was taking a shower. The whole room was smoked. She was able to quickly escape though, no injury. Needless to say, no fire extinguishers available, no fuse blown. There was no word of excuse from the manager. The pool installation/electrics/pumps is just a pile of junk and out of order. There is a suspicious pipe running from the pool bathrooms into the pool. So much about pool hygenie...…
