First time I've ever experienced bedbugs. Ughh! The itch is terrible. This hotel is bad. The train starts blowing the whistle at 5:30am and again every 15 minutes after that there is another train.
They told me that they emailed me to confirm my reservations, but I didn't respond and they held the room anyway. I'm not sure why they would do this as I had already confirmed the room with a credit card previously. They said they tried to contact me when I was in the rainforest not sure how I could check my email in the rainforest. When I got home and checked my email. . . it was a lie. They never tried to contact me.
Also, I had to ask for towels and the man checked my room first to make sure that I knew where to look for the towels.
Wow, I've had such good experiences in Costa Rica before that I am amazed to find this terrible place.
