This hotel may have what other travelers have described as renovated rooms, but I only can describe mine, as I write this review from the hotel's restaurant.
There is no hot water in the bathroom sink and there is no separate shower--the shower is next to the toilet, all in one room. Hot water for the shower is supplied by an instant hot system which at best delivers warm water--and not very warm at that. The towels are like sand paper, no shampoo, and a thin sliver of soap no larger than a quarter.
The room itself is small, with a tiny closet and no dresser or drawers, forcing you to live out of your bag; you can't unpack, because there is no where to put anything that doesn't hang.
Breakfast was acceptable, though a few flies buzzed around the table and ants scampered over it--in an open air restaurant in the tropics I can understand a fly or two, but the ants? I don't even want to think about what's going on in the kitchen if that's what is in the public dining room.
The pool area is clean, as is the pool itself and the hotel is located just a 2 minute walk to the beach.
Overall, this is the first time I have booked a hotel based upon a TripAdvisor recommendation and have found the property to vary from the description. Maybe if I had been given a renovated room, but I wasn't....
