“Not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Unhelpful front dest. Hesitate to help. Too much attitude for a place like this.
Extra money for parking on the street.

The first room we got smells mouldy. The bed sheet was damp. No remote control for the air con and TV. No hair dryer. Dead bugs were found on the floor. Live mosquitoes were flying around, sucking blood.
We went to the front desk to have our room changed. She was reluctant. But eventually did so. The interaction was very unpleasant.
The new room we got was on the second floor, much better than the one on the first floor, but still, it was just okay.

In conclusion, we won't stay there ever again.

Room Tip: If you have to go there, ask for a room facing the beach on the second floor. At least the room won...

This hotel is overpriced for what you get, wait hold on, you don’t get anything! This hotel is part of 3 hotels. Need the iron? Go next door. Need a microwave? Go next door. Need to get into the hotel? Buzz and next door will open it for you. Let’s just say the person who sits at the front desk is not concierge she is the accountant...lol My boyfriend made the shower head by tying a towel to allow the water to spray...lol Let’s just say I will never be staying at this hotel again or any of their neighboring hotels.

Great Location :)

The location is GREAT (few steps from the beach in front of the hotel) and the room is good enough to spend a few days...
The only problem is that there is just a small glass next to the shower to keep the water inside so after every shower, we had to put the towel on the floor and squeeze the soaked towel many times to do not have a "pool" in the bathroom's floor!!
A plastic curtain would solve the problem!!
Also there was hair (from someone else) on the sheets and towels and it looks like the painting in the room was done without moving any furnitures away (there's painting on the bed, tv, shelf, floor...) so it kind of gives you the feeling that you're in a place that's still under construction...
It's just small details that make a big difference (visually and for guest's comfort!)
Overall, it's a good place to stay if you wanna save money on your trip!

This is the kind of place that is good for the price, you can't go in expecting the quality of a holiday inn or the Hilton, the rooms are small but they get the job done. I personally didn't see any pests or anything, the best thing about this hotel is the location, the beach just across the hotel is great, and you can take the bus just about anywhere from the hotel, the best part is the diversity of the surrounding neighborhood mostly Latin countries, Peru Brazil Argentina etc. the neighborhood is the home to a great deal of good restaurants and dessert places, don't be intimidated by the mediterrean food, that place is absolutely great

This was the most terrible and horrific experience I have had in my life , this hotel was disgusting , stinks, the location is terrible for people who are trying to enjoy the night life because there's literally nothing going on over there, too many homeless people and they come in the hotel and try to steal breakfast and the hotel staff picked up a chair to hit the homeless guy I'm still traumatized from being at that hotel and I saw dead cock roaches in the room it's just NASTY bottom line please listen to these reviews and do not go there yea the price is descent but there are other hotels with descent prices they need to literally banned this hotel from renting to tourist I felt like I was in a third world country

After reading so many bad reviews I tried switching hotels and sure enough I couldnt do it unless I paid for a new hotel out of pocket. I ended up getting to the hotel and sure enough all that I had read was true!! The place is gross seems like something from a movie. I was so grossed out to even touch the bed. There was a dead roach on the wall, stain on the bed and mold and mildew in the bathroom. Motel 6 is 10 times better than what this place was. This place should be out of business. I filed a complaint against the hotel and had the Health Dept inspect the hotel and hopefully they are shut down!!
