To start with we arrived at 9:10 in the evening and EVERYTHING was shut. We had warned the hotel that we would be arriving at this time, so were hoping they were expecting us. However, the reception was locked up and dark. We had to use a phone outside reception to call them and they said (rather angrily) that they would be down soon. We waited for some time whilst an angry mob of mosquitos proceeded to eat us alive!! When the receptionist eventually made an appearance (in her PJs!) she was very unfriendly and uncommunicative. She could see that we'd obviously had a long journey and were obviously tired, thirsty, hungry and being bitten constantly! She took ages to get things sorted and barely said a word to us other than to point us in the general direction of our room. When we asked if there was anywhere open to get some food, we were told rather rudely that no, everything shuts at 9. Nevermind, things were obviously different in this town, so we went off to our room. The room had an AWFUL smell about it. It was a damp smell which also sort of had a faint whiff of urine about it. EVERYTHING felt damp, especially the bed sheets. The air conditioning was old and noisy and the bathroom looked like it might have creepy crawlies in it. Maybe it didn't but I didn't hang around long enough to find out! We checked out first thing the next morning, which was our plan anyway, and the receptionist was slightly more friendly then, but I wasn't sorry to see the back of the place!
