Due to work, I stayed one night in this Hotel Villa Bejar, with my wife.
I was charged a fortune for the room about 172 US.. I had asked on various occasions how much the room was going to be as I was there for work, not for pleasure. Noone gave a straight answer but always referred me to someone else.
It was not very clean. Obviously the gardens and facilities were attended to by the gardeners and they were working hard that day I was there. Even so, it all had a very dated look, and as the hotel was apparently built in the 1980's, the people who ran it had not done very much since then.
A great song and dance was made about the Jacuzzi outside the room in open air. It was full of mould, there was a beer can there from a previous resident as well as a bottle of shampoo or similar from the bathroom. Obviously it is not at all maintained. Knowing of the potential risks of the Jacuzzi we decided straight away that that was not on our list.
Wifi was not available all the time. On the Wednesday night there was a weak signal, but the reception could not give me the password. After three attempts, the gentleman in reception finally said that "perhaps this would solve the problem" but it took time. On Thursday morning, there was no Wifi in the room. I rang reception and they said they would move the antennas, but it never worked that morning. Other guests recommended that there was a better signal by the pools. They never asked me whether the problem was resolved. Until we left it had not been resolved. You could get it at breakfast in the dining area, which was again dated, but more or less functional, but nothing special, for a $172 USD room. Actually the buffet was paid for the company that I was attending. So it would have been an extra.
There were not many options for breakfast. There were no mixtures of juices just orange juice. That was at least freshly prepared. I also had bacon and eggs. The bacon was not of a good quality. They only had white bread, Nowadays one expects to be offered options. My wife said that the chilaquiles looked disgusting, and she was not at all impressed by the other dishes. Her scrambled eggs and ham were not very good, as she said that the comal on which they were cooked was not cleaned before cooking her dish, and therefore carried the tastes of other dishes ! She saw them cooking so this is not a guess.
As is usual in Mexico, in general, the people were friendly. The least friendly were the people in reception. They all tried to an extent but obviously the problem is due basically to Management and Supervision.
I will never stay there again and I would pass that recomendation to all possible visitors.
