the travel agency (olympia travel) in La Paz said that their information was up to date, but not so. (incidentally, this Travel Agency offered no solutions when I told them today of our unfortunate experience.) we supposedly had included in our services airport pick-up and return at completion of our stay, welcome drinks, and the Ambaibo Hotel advertises having a great Italian-French cuisine based restaurant--which is not there. Nothing proved to be true of what the Hotel Advertizes. We found that nobody picked us up on arrival nor took us back to the airport on departure, nobody offered welcome drinks, and there was no restaurant on site. Worse, we found that someone had entered our room and mishandled video cameras and left them damaged. Somebody also left a red worm (lombriz de california) near the bed one morning, which is not native of the area. The hotel owner commented that he had brought worms from another region for fishing, so we assumed it must have been his daughter who was playing with our things and leaving the worm as a strange surprise for us to find on returning from breakfast. When we approached the owner and manager about this, they offered no solutions, just said we had to check-out early when our flight was scheduled for 5pm! Avoid this place; take care of your belongings elsewhere. Best case scenario pay 20 bolivianos to use the pool, but bring a towel because they are too cheap to provide one.
