I am currently staying in this Hotel long term working in the Navy Air Facility in total 60+ days.... everyday I dread going back to the hotel.
The Jacuzzi is always dirty.
The swimming pool is so cold, just don't go in it, even relaxing by the pool is not an option as there is only 2 sun loungers... both broken!!
Looking for shade?? nah, even the parasells are broken!
BBQ?? if you want to ruin a bird's habitat that's growing in there!!
I have been woken up by someone hammering the floors replacing the carpet at 7am, someone snoring next door (the walls are paper thin) and someone having sex! I went to use the washing facilities and they burnt a hole though my clothes, the hotel did not provide replacements or cover the costs of the damage.
The hotel receptionists are very friendly and do their best to help but clearly are lacking any sort of managerial skills.
Generally from what I have experienced the rooms are kept to a reasonable standard, the towels are changed and beds made daily, however the cleaners have very little respect for peoples property, I have found stuff I have left on the bed scrunched up on the side with the bin left on top of them!
The shower head was broken when we arrived and we have since found cockroaches in the in the room- Unacceptable!
The biggest most annoying fact about the whole hotel is the ridiculously slow, barely non existent WiFi... they have about 5 routers but still you loose connection every 10-15 mins.... I had better internet service in Afghanistan living in a tent!!
I have complained to the manager and still nothing has changed.... rating this hotel as 'Terrible' is generous to say the least!
