My stay at the Fairmont Vacation Villas at Riverside in Fairmont Hot Springs was my worts vacation experience in my 59 years.
The area surrounding the unit, in particular the steps and the outside vestibule were filled with bird droppings from the swallows that had nests in the rafters. Some of the steps had torn pieces of cardboard, which were removed every few days and replaced with a fresh piece of cardboard, which was soon covered with new droppings. When I complained, I was told that the government did not permit the removal of the nests and that the areas were supposed to be washed down daily. THE AREAS WERE NOT WASHED DOWN, LEAVING A DISGUSTING, UNHEALTHY AND UNSIGHTLY MESS THAT HAD TO BE STEPPED OVER IN ORDER TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE UNIT!
The cement patio/balcony was all broken-up and crumbling, making it impossible to walk on it without shoes or other foot coverings.
One tiny window, approximately 8” by 16” that opened onto what would be the equivalent of a shaft way, was the only ventilation and natural light in the room. As there was only a ceiling fan and no air conditioning, the room was extremely uncomfortable to sleep in.
There was no counter space. There was a sink right next to the electric stovetop (2 burners). The entire area was approx 36” by 20”, including the sink and stovetop. The only electrical receptacle in the entire kitchen area was above the stovetop. If you wanted to make coffee or toast, you had to place them on top of the burners. It was impossible to make eggs and toast, eggs and coffee or coffee and toast at the same time. When you washed the dishes, you had to place the dish drain on top of the burners.
Provided upon arrival, but when asked for fresh ones, I was told in a very snide way that is what the washer and dryer in the common area were for.
