This had to be the longest 18 hours I have ever spent in a hotel,
after traveling a long day on the dusty roads in Costa Rico, you would hope for a warm shower. Not at the flying crap Hole, No hot water and when you inform the manager nothing but attitude. So off to the pool to clean up. The room was dirty the bathroom dark and dingy, and worst of all the bed. No mattress pad just a thin sheet,no blanket just a sheet to cover, and the smell of urine. Then when I informed the owner via e-mail about my stay, he responds" well you must not enjoy nature, maybe you should stay at the Hilton or go to McDonald's". Well sir at least McDonald's bathrooms would be cleaner!
