    We always pre-pay the entry fee of $10 per person on line and just bring the receipt. There is no exit fee for US travelers.

    We had room service every day we put the sign on the door for room service. We didn't get the number of towels needed for each guest but our beds were made every single day. No extra charge but we did leave tips each day.
