Let's see.... The spa, restaurant, casino, and bar were closed. The hotel is on a mountain away from everything. We seriously had to take a $20 cab ride to get food. I mean NOTHING but a room. That's not even the worst part. The hotel was taken over by a wedding band that had 8 bass drummers pounding, while 8 women in "carnivale" costumes, screamed at the top of their lungs. With the guests blowing on whistles all at the same time. I am NOT joking. At 3 am several guests including us ran from the hotel to another one down the mountain another $20 cab ride to get at least 2 hours of sleep. It was awful. Oh and the view is of local slums. I posted a video of the noise. It's unbelievable
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The three-story, 23-room hotel is adorned with ornate white pillars, a spacious balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows. Inside, hardwood floors, natural wood accents and a winding staircase give the hotel an elegant appeal. The Grand Tara offers plenty of places to unwind from a day of business negotiations or sightseeing. Guests can lounge by the pool or Jacuzzi, enjoy a cocktail on the veranda or take in the view on the terrace. The on-site spa offers a variety of treatments, including massages, facials, manicures and pedicures. Cosmetic surgery can also be scheduled after a personal consultation with the on-site doctor. The aptly named Grand View Restaurant, headed by an executive chef, whips up inventive international fare and is open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner, although reservations are recommended. The spacious, stylishly appointed guest rooms feature king or queen-size beds and old-fashioned charm, but with modern amenities such as mini fridges, flat-screen televisions and wireless Internet. Rooms differ in size, but all have views of either the Central Valley or the mountains. A few rooms contain immense walk-in closets. For families or groups, the hotel has nine suites that each contain a large living area, fully equipped kitchen and a varying number of bedrooms. ... more less
