Booked online a double room from Nov. 20 thru 27th. at an internet booking site for $55.00 per night plus local taxes. Was terribly surprised at checkout time with a $64.17 room rate plus; $11.67 per day for energy charge, $10.27 room charge tax of 16% and $6.32 or 10% for hab room charge. To top it off at the end of the bill was added a 10% gratuity. Total bill for 7 nights was $654.82. My complaints were promptly ignored, so beware of the price switch.
The noisy air condittioning in the ceiling froze up several times and had to be turned off to thaw out, electricity went on and off several times during the day and the AC did not cool during generator operation, towels were taken in the morning and returned in the evening, location was not very convenient to any restaurants or shoppping areas, unless you took their overpriced taxi at the front of the hotel.
The advertisement describes a bar, a restaurant, a night club and a pool. None of these were
realy there and operating all the time and the pool had a distinctive green color to it. My advice stay away from there and go to a international chain, where service and price will be compatible with the charges.
