Location & impressions:
Nice hotel, well located. Xpensive, but regarding the location of the hotel...The restaurant of the hotel is rarely frequented, except for the inclued breakfast.
Hotel is pretty close to a small bridge under wich runs a low watered river, that brings a lot of mosquitos at night near the reception and restaurant. If you plan to use the internet computer located near the staff desk, make sure to wear long pants and long t-shirt...
But Otherwise, the hotel is superb, and clean.
About the rooms:
For the first 2 nights we got room #3, wich was wonderful, located in front of the parking area, close to the restaurant and reception. The room was large, confortable, tv inclued and air conditionned (thanks god!) and nice wooden carved door that we can lock from the inside too. Nice and clean bathroom. Room price: 130$ / night.
For the last night, we were switched to the room #11, on the 2nd floor behind the pool area in the dark corridor of the hotel.. For 30$ less than the other room (100$ / night).
The difference was shocking!!! the room was quite small in a small dark corridor at the back of the hotel, not well lighted in the corridor, but when we opened the door: 2 small beds, air conditionned, and if you want to plan to use the bathroom: you need to open the door, enter and then close the door so you can sit... this says it all...
And what surprise!!! The only window give a view to a wall of bricks and several bats looking at you!!! (at least 5-10..) and the wall is less than 30 cm from the windows.... and the tv was a old square tv from the 90's, not flat one like room #3... so 100$ was expensive for this room compared to the first room we got. But it's only for the room.
While you eat breakfast, you can have a nice look at the birds, place is quiet, well located and relax. Staff was great, and i would recommend this place again.
