Hi! we decided to stay in this hotel because was close to the airport and cheap. We had to overnight there so we could catch our resort transfer the next day. I checked the reviews in booking and there were pretty good so we booked it. One day before our arrival, I asked the hotel how to go there by public transportation. They offer to pick us so I gave them our flight information. When we arrived to the airport, no one was there. After being waiting for a while... a man came and said he was from the hotel, that he has to bring us there but there are just 5 taxis in the island so we have to wait. After being waiting, he said we should better go by bus (15 minutes far away). So we drove by public bus to the hotel. When we arrived, the manager gave us the bill, he charged around 40 euros for our "transfer". We were so tired that we did not want to argue so we agreed. We tried to pay by card but the machine was not working so he asked for US dollars. We are coming from Europe so we said, we just can pay in EUR. He said that he will checked the conversion and he gave us a price. We thought that was way to much but we wanted to check the conversion so we paid and went to the room. During the night we checked and we saw, he cheated us in the conversion, so when we wake up, we asked for him. The other employee said the manager is not there. We had to leave so we do not loose the transfer to our resort. Unfortunatelly we could not get our money back.
The hotel itself it is not a hotel at all. it is in the middle of no where, so forget to find a restaurant, ATM, supermarkt... nothing at all.
The room is small, dark and not isolate against noisy.
I just want to forget that night and the bad experience that we had. For sure, I do not recommend this hotel to anyone.
