I really came to this place expecting so much more.. I was misinformed by the distance this place iwas to the town of Montezuma and to the facilities there. I was told that the pool would be done by December 2007, but it was far from finished when we got there.. There was construction every day starting at 6am.. and it was LOUD!... also the road is so awfu to town... there are NO cabs that take you to town or back... we had to hitch-hike... or walk.. there are NO lights on the road and it was at least a 20-30 min walk up a VERY steep, dirt road. My friend lost her shoe becasue we were walking back to sollevante at like 9 pm in the pitch dark and a car was coming up the hill, and it's impossible for cars to see you on the road..so we ran casue we were scared with no shoe!
One of the nights we came back to no lights or water. after a very tiring and sweaty day...The woman Carla also only helped till she got paid. The first day she gave us a ride to twon.. after we gave her money.. we didn't hear from her again.. we saw her in town where she ignored us... We wired 50% of the payment from new york and our bank charged us a fee to do this.. when we gave her the other 50% she charged us a fee because her bank charged her... but there is no other way to pay her!.. it ended up being a lot more than we thought it would
Honestly this place looks lile it WILL be nice.. after all the construction is done.. and maybe they have a shuttle or something to town..i think they are not used to have people there, which is why the service was terrible... we ran out of toilet paper after the first day...
save yourslef a lot of trouble and stay in town near the beach...
