As a cheaper priced hotel, El Lago Waters was fine. Yes it could do with some updating but we only slept at the hotel. Most of the time we were out and about as The Entrance is a great place to visit.

Booked accommodation online from website the photos looked lovely but no where near what it is actually like when we got there. Its in a great location but the building and rooms are in need of some work. The biggest turn off was the old mattresses and lounges piled up in the car park rotting away. The ladies in reception...

Turn hot water tap on, nothing comes out. Toilet doesn't flush. Beds are like laying on concrete. Lights flicker. Not even close to worth the money. Customer service was awful. Very outdated and nothing like it appears to be on the website..

We booked this hotel for 1 night, 14/7/16. While the room was very clean and well appointed, the FREE WiFi was a BIG letdown. We couldn't get a signal to last for more than about 1 minute, then it would quit and we'd have to log in again, AND the modem or router was mounted just outside our door! Either... More
