This hotel was overpriced and disappointing. I wonder if some of the better reviews are real. You need to be suspicious of any hotel that makes you sign a waiver of liability when you check in and charges you on the spot for the entire stay. (This was explained by telling us that others have checked in and left after one night without saying anything)
Our garden room was small and not well appointed. There was no dresser and the closet was so narrow and short it wasn't of much value. There was no clock in the room and our request for one was ignored. The balcony was nice, but we couldn't use it because of mesquitoes. When I asked how we were supposed to keep them out of the room, I was told to keep the door closed. The bathroom was second rate. While it looked interesting in the hotel photos it was in need of an update and the stones in the shower were clearly the cheapest way to hide the fact the water drained very slowly.
The staff was great with the exception of the female asst. mgr. who clearly had some authority issues. We ate breakfast at the hotel (it was included) and it was very good.
I'm not sure how good the other hotels in town are, but this one is medicocre and overpriced for what you get.
