Sad face IconDisliked: Property conditions & facilities
Requested and paid for a King size bed and fridge and got 2 double beds and they siad they would put a mini fridge in and after asking at the front desk twice I gave up and just put up with the double beds and no fridge. Ridiculous smoking policy as was told to go across the street to smoke although was not even on their property obviously ignored and told the security to leave me alone and do something poroductive. Likely will not use that hotel again or recommecnd it as their staff is not very helpful at all.

Very nice. Under some construction, lost power and water pressure a few times. But overall, very nice. Charge to take you to the airport. Uber is cheaper.

It was beautiful and the staff was excellent. My only concern was seeing hairs in my shower. Def weren't mine. But whatever, it's in a third world country, it was inexpensive, and safe.
