I stayed at the Diria on a recommendation and was sourly disappointed. If the stay had gone as planned then it would have been only a mediocre stay. The room was modest with firm bedding and uncontrollable temperature. The freezing shower matched the freezing pool. The pool was overlooked by a construction site and the “cat calls” that come with a construction site were offensive. The easy beach access gave way to a polluted ocean. The sewage of the street flowed directly into ocean in front of the hotel. The ocean could not be swum in without risk of infection. The hotel did not inform guests of the possible risk but actually encouraged going into the polluted waters. The breakfast was good but not all it was hyped to be. The security was a façade and the part where the trip went wrong. The door in our room did not lock properly. We returned from dinner to a room with money and electronics missing. Upon informing the staff of this it took about 48 hours to get a response. The staff was well trained in American customer service, friendly and accommodating, all except the General Manager. He did not believe anything had been taken and accused us, the guests and friends of stealing from one another. Of course this was all said through a translator since he did not speak English. This a property promoting its staff speaks English. The most the General Manager could offer was a 5% discount after over $1000 had been taken. I have never been disrespected like the General Manager at the Diria disrespected me. I do not recommend this hotel.
