    Toxic sewer smell

    This would have been a salutary review if there wasn't a persistent smell of feces in the room. I told mment of the fact and they just shrugged their shoulders and said that this happens when the have a lot of guests. I guess it wasn't just my room. The fact that they had all the unrented rooms airing out should have been a signal. Other than that and the thin curtains, noisy families, maid that didn't come until 4pm,braying dog at 5am and rear half of unfinished rooms it was actually ok. Just behind the first row of hotels. Pool. Bfast, Ok cable and air. Clean. Big simple room. Ok water pressure and heat. View of bay. Pretty quiet. Good value if not for the sewer poisoning.

    Muy buen servicio amabilidad de parte del personal del hotel muy rico su desayuno y todo muy bien el cuarto y lo económico lo único malo que no dejan pasar al hotel hermanos de ellos para bajar más rápido a playa o sino disfrutar de una vista del mar sentados en los camastros.. pero de ahí estuve muy feliz en la estancia de una sola noche con ellos la verdad lo recomiendo todo muy bien

    para un fin de semana se recomienda

    la recepción muy bien, nos recibieron antes del horario, el hotel es básico pero puede mejorar en la limpieza y mobiliario, recomiendo pulir los pisos eso ayudaría a no verse tan viejo, las puestas son muy antiguas, todavía con perilla y una llave vieja, ayudaría un cambio de cortinas, por lo menos en la parte baja primer piso son viejas y muy claras, no se puede dormir pasa mucha luz. el restaurante bien, la comida muy rica, lo que pedimos a la carta bien.

    Las fotos q publican en su página no corresponden a la realidad, no había agua caliente se aviso a mantenimiento y nunca lo corrigieron, el miércoles lo vio x la tarde lo vio y en una de las habitaciones tenía varias goteras y lo único q hicieron fue mover las camas y amaneció todo el piso mojado, el aire acondicionado no funcionaba, para servir en restaurante a la hora de la comida se tardaron en servir unas hamburguesas más de una hora, por estas situaciones deje el hotel un día antes.
