Staff at this hotel had a fake smile on their face all the time. We got dry leftovers for breakfast from the previous day. Loud music was on very often, it was very annoying. One night there was a group of people drinking alcohol until late. Next day the receptionist told me

Very nice hotel, in a quiet place on the outskirt of Sámara. 5 minute walk to the east, quiet side of Sámara Beach & 5 min driving from Playa Carrillo. The facilities are great: swimming pool, bar, nice rooms.. Breakfast made fresh every morning.

Why we did not enjoy our stay and would never be back: - very often, there was no hot water in the shower. Almost every day in the evening we had to go down to ask the stuff if they could switch on the boiler - bugs and flees in mattress and blankets in a family room - the

Dear Mrs. Petra Benova This review is a complete joke, we as a hotel have a #1 rule to please all of our guests, I am not going to answer this review but to call directly to TripAdvisor to tell them just because we didn’t refund your 4 nights you were requesting because you had ants in the room (lady once again you know the rooms are VERY CLEAN and you are in the tropics) you’ll find ants, bugs, lizards, etc all around the gardens, but the rooms are extremely clean. You enjoyed a very nice bed, clean sheets, air conditioner, all of a very top quality. You stayed not only for 4 nights but for 15 days and I am pleased to say you stayed in our hotel because is the nicest hotel you could find in the area, so please back off and stop this!!! Thank you !!!

Que pena, en serio no encontramos nada, pregunté a las camareras y no me dieron razón, de hecho me pareció extraño porque las sábanas al extenderlas se vería el control y para eso precisamente está la canasta en la mesa de noche, pero de mi parte y de todo el equipo le pedimos disculpas a lo que sucedió, pero no por lo que sucedió sino por hacerle pasar a Ud un mal rato, no es nuestra intención que un huésped salga insatisfecho, si quisiera volver para refrescar lo que piensa de nosotros se lo agradecería y yo misma me aseguraré que no se cometa ningún error, estamos a sus órdenes Muchas gracias, slds
