I stayed at Hotel Esperanza for two nights this month and it is a TERRIBLE hotel. I haven't stayed in a hotel this bad in a long time and I am absolutely disgusted. I am not a picky traveler and I don't need much to be happy but this place is definitely dingy and the dumps. I will never stay there again and you shouldn't either.
The room smelt like mold and although there was no visible trash on the floor, it looked and felt dirty. The sheets were grey in color and old. I am also sure that the bed was infested with bed bugs. I am not one to call out a hotel for this unless I am 100% sure. It is a serious accusation but in this case, I am positive that our bed was infested. After 2 nights, I had over 40 bites all over my body, in the clusters and patterns that are very typical of bed bugs. There were also streaks of blood on the pillows and sheets which I wished I had noticed on our first night there. Upon leaving, just to confirm my suspicions, I lifted up the mattress to see if there were the typical bed bug marks on the wooden bed frame and of course, they were there. Disgusting.
The shared bathrooms are also small, offer no privacy and are full of mosquitoes. If there was dengue in town, this would be a recipe for disaster.
The only good thing about the hotel was the staff. They were all very nice and helpful. Who cares about this tho when everything else was horrible.
