Having stayed in the hotel 8 years ago, I had a reason to be back in the area and had booked this hotel through the Canadian developer that owns this property. We showed up on the day of our reservation with no one knowing we were coming and next to no staff. The silver lining was that Jesus(Chewie) was still around to try his best to make things work. The property itself is still nice although basically abandoned-we were there with Helene and Karinna who did the cooking and small amounts of cleaning and Chewie who was the designated English speaker for us. The bar/restaurant which had been vibrant with locals and travellers alike was empty and no liquor license along with no ability to cook except for the breakfast they rustled up for us. No hot water or even warm water in the showers but I wasn't really sure who I could have look at it since there was o one there at night. My mistake there was security at night to watch the front entrance. Just not a place I would stay at again.
