Made the mistake of having family book this hotel for us without reading the reviews. As soon as we left the airport and told the cab driver which hotel to take us to he asked us who chose the hotel and then said that it's located in a rough area and not to venture outside after dark. As soon as you get in the area you can see what he meant as a half-naked prostitute walked right by us.
The bad-The hotel is very old, dark and in rough shape. Rooms are dark, tiny, walls full of cracks and the old air conditioners barely worked. My 6 year old son even commented on the smell of the room (musty). Shower was horrible, a hard stream of water which felt like a pistol on you (see pic). Definitely a lower class hotel that was way over priced. Paid $89 for one night as we had to pay $15 for the cot which there we barely enough room for. Cab driver told us we could get a better hotel in a better area for the same price. Restaurant service was horrible and pool is tiny. The breakfast that's included was not very good. We found egg shells in the scrambled eggs.
The decent-pool was clean and the cheeseburger and spaghetti was good.
Would definitely NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. Most of my reviews on trip advisor are positive so I'm not someone who normally complains but this place was gross. Only reason why we stayed is that we arrived late after a long day of traveling, already paid for a taxi and were leaving at 7:30am the next day.
Avoid this place and spend your money elsewhere.
