    샹투메 프린스페 공화국에 있는 페스타나 호텔은 제일 큰 호텔으로서 가격이 비싼것 외에는 대체로 아름다운 전망과 시설이 훌륭한 호텔이지만 영어의사소통이 불편한 상태임.

    Not a five star hotel!

    - No sand beach - only rocks - but yes, a pool. - Renovation is needed. - Very expensive. - ‘Junior suite’ is a joke - an extra small room with a sofa - no window. - Nobody speak (or understand) simple English. - We booked ‘with view over the sea’. Ha - behind all the palm trees!! - Sunny and warm climate - that’s why we came for (good for the extremely poor Sao Tome people).

    Hotel nie warty swojej ceny.

    Nie polecam. Hotel absolutnie nie zasługuje na 5 gwiazdek. Według europejskich standardów trudno byłoby go ocenić wyżej niż 3 gwiazdki.
