hotel is ok, beds are fine and wifi is working well. Room a bit hot, but not a real issue. Given the quality, clearly overpriced though. Kitchen seemed dirty, fridge's last clean up has probably been done during the last century (if done).
Advices were limited, and friendliness was clearly not present - but we were not such on a sociable mood - not a real problem. :)
All activities are well organized, and usually, sub contractors are among the best - too bad Martina is taking 15$ of commisison vs the price to be paid directly to the tours arganisers (snorkeling, etc...).. when you multiply by the number of activities and the fares, it seems pretty profitable for a phone call!
Payment via Visa possible (not AMEX), but an overcharge of 7% should be planned - in other terms, bring your cash!
