Chi Chi Charlie’s is a true hard core travelers dive hotel. The only real redeeming quality is the proximity to the ocean. The rooms are simple with absolutely no amenities. If you decide to spend the money bring all your own soap etc.
I reserved a room for a friend for a week and paid upfront for three nights. I personally gave cash to Benito the manager. My friends notified me twelve days prior, I sent an email through the hotels web site notifying Benito on the cancelation. When I arrived he claimed he did not receive the email. Yet, he showed me how he received others emails. The only explanation, he deleted my cancelation notification.
We had friends visiting from Cancun three days into our trip I asked Benito if they could have the room for that night. He said he had people that were coming and were staying for four days and were paying a much higher rate than me. He said if they showed up he would refund money. Long story short he only wanted me to take the room for one night in LOW SEASON (Hurricane Season)
Long story short do not give this hotel a cash deposit. In fact I would not give them any deposit of any kind. They do not play by the same rules or have ethics similar to other hotels along the same stretch of beach on the North end. These other hotels have all the amenities, pool, shampoo, soap, towels etc.
