This hotel was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. First, I must say the desk staff was very nice. However, we were there in August and, as expected, it was very hot and very very humid. The maid would turn off the airconditioning whenver we left. If we came back to the room and turned it on and left again we would come back to it off. At breakfast the airconditioners were never on. I asked and the waiter refused. One day I took the remote and turned them on myself. Within minutes a waiter came out and turned it off! Everything we owned started to smell musty. I kept spraying our clothes with fabreze but despite that when we got home, even after washing the clothes 3 times and drying in the sun, many items were unusable. And the topper; I found mold at the bottom of our duffels and they had to be discarded along with some clothes! Bottom line: Don't stay here in the summer when it is very hot and humid and air conditioning is a necessity.
