Had read the reviews, especially the poor ones. Our tour company set this one up for us so we were wary. The first room the air conditioner didn't work, no tv which wasn't a big deal but, and there were no amenities in the room at all, like they had just put us into a room someone had just left. I complained about the lack of air flow, and she said just leave the door open. Right. Leave it open on the main dirt road in from the of the hotel. I'm sure I'd sleep good that night! Unacceptable so she reluctantly showed me another room where the air worked, tv, and had all the amenities. Another world until I realized it was close to a rather unique run down bar. Fortunately, the bars closed early. Happy ending. Just a rather sad old hotel. But it was close to the beach. Again, poor hot water and shower.
And what's with no shower doors in these hotels so the water sprays everywhere? Wow, that was weird.
