When one arrives and walks from reception to our rooms, the well landscaped and maintained outside appearance gives one the idea that we are in an upscale hotel.
Once we insert the key into the lock and try to open the door the questions begin.
We had two rooms, bath, and kitchenette. All looked like they belong to the 1970s.
It was clean, well made up and the beds were fine, but the room just looked old.
The two major problems were the A/C - old and super noisy.
As the power in the city kept going out, the A/C would stop and not come back on.
Maintenance arrived and fixed this problem.
The shower ran all night, no way to turn it off, we could not hear it due to the A/C noise.
Our concern with this facility and too many locations in Costa Rica was the lack of internet throughout the facility.
After full days, we have to do our writing in the evenings to submit our material to the Internet late at night.
The hotel had internet at the bar and reception. One required us to walk 150 and the other 250 yards, in the DARK.
With the power constantly going out, the bar router was often out. Reception had no clue on how to reset theirs.
We ended up being the tech support - troubleshooting, unplugging, resetting and rebooting.
