We stayed one night at Barefoot Suites and that is the last we'll spend there. The hotel staff showing us our room was not able to get the air conditioner working. When we asked for another room or if there was any way to fix it the short answer was "no, just open the windows." When I asked if there was the potential problem for mosquitos, because of no screening, they said "yes, there are mosquitos." The staff person did not offer us any bug spray nor mosquito netting.
The next morning my wife awoke (I didn't get any sleep due to the heat and mosquitos), with welts all over her body. I had some, but not near as many as I ended up trying to sleep on the sofa near the windows. We checked the sheets and noticed in horror what we could only surmise were bed bugs! We were scheduled to begin our sailboat charter that day so we left in a hurry.
One week later, after returning from a sailboat charter, we were supposed to spend the night again in the hotel before our flight the next day. When we told the hotel staff about our bad experience in their room and showed the welts all over my wife's body that were still red and puffy the hotel staff didn't even offer an apology or anything, claiming that it must have been something else. Their attitude was one of being "put off" by us.
We hope nobody else has to go through this experience there.
