We stayed here during the Orerol festival and as a result the prices were greatly inflated. We paid approximately $280 per night for a ground floor standard room. Unfortunately the couple we were traveling with made the arrangements without telling us about the exorbitant prices and so we were shocked with the price especially since what we got was equivalent to a Travel Lodge in Canada. First of all, there is no parking lot unless you arrive by bicycle. Guests with vehicles must park approximately a half a kilometre away in a public parking lot. Our room which was supposed to have an ocean view, looked out on to a weedy sand dune not the sea. The wind whistled constantly through our door and when we asked at the desk, they told us to roll up a towel and tuck it at the bottom of the door. The room was very warm and there was no thermostat to control it. The bathroom had very poor lighting and our shower did not drain properly (ie after taking a shower in the evening, there was still water in the stall the next morning). Our room was adequately clean when we booked in but housekeeping on the second day was almost non-existent. They made the bed but that was it. No fresh towels, no bathroom clean-up etc. All this for $280 a night! There was a sauna and a pool but during this very busy time, the management decided to have the sauna renovated making it difficult to gain access to the pool. The hotel management had made arrangements with another hotel (quite a distance away) to use their sauna but you had to get yourself there. That was just plain ludicrous. The breakfast provided was very nice but certainly not worth the price of the room. In fairness, we would never have booked the this hotel at their inflated price during the Orerol festival, that was our companions' choice however, I would not have paid their normal price of approximately $186 Canadian at any time. I have reviewed several other hotels and this is the first time I have felt the need to give negative feedback.
