I write this review from staying in the smallest hotel room I have ever seen.
The room is extremely small (a weird triangle shape), extremely old and has outdated minimalist furniture. We are on level 1, and have the pleasure of overlooking a tin roof.
There are iron stains all over the carpet. The balcony would be nice to sit on and enjoy, but unfortunately the weather is raining and we are stuck in the small room because the rain is coming in at such an angle the balcony was partially flooded. There is also a large portion of paint that is coming off the roof. It does not look pleasant. Part of the corner of the bathroom has rotted. The blinds are filthy and visibly dirty. I do not understand why management have not fixed these minor problems.
What annoys me the most in this hotel room is hearing the people above us using the toilet, turning the sink on, having a shower and speaking on the phone. I can hear every word and every foot step. Not good for a light sleeper such as myself.
Thank goodness we got a cheap rate with free breakfast both days and free welcome cocktails. I will not be using the late checkout. Can't wait to leave. I think I wouldn't be so critical of the hotel room if the weather wasn't so bad and I wasn't spending so much time stuck in this depressing room.
Definitely worth paying more for a larger hotel room and request to be above level 2 and have an ocean view. We were fortunate enough to have a view of the pool from our bathroom window. I feel sorry for the units that face the road and overlook shops such as 7 Eleven etc.
The Chinese restaurant across the road is great. The bar in the hotel does great food too and is much more reasonably priced than eating in the restaurant. Breakfast is pretty boring, if you want a meal there are only 3 basic options. Not worth the money paid, but as it was free for us it was ok.
Beware of staying on weekends. The resort had some function on in the bar and the microphone was incredibly loud (we could hear every word from our room) and the music playing was so loud we couldn't hear our tv properly. Very annoying.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely not. Go elsewhere.
