    You take your life in your hands using the shower. Extremely slippery when wet. No walkie talkie, phone, cell or internet service in room. Agree with prior review that front desk is not equipped to deal with any kind of medical problem.

    The easiest method is to charge your bar and dinner drinks to your room and settle at the end of your stay. You can also purchase items in the gift shop in the same manner. Credit cards are accepted.
