This is one of the worst places I ever stayed. We booked on booking.com for 160 dollars a night so were expecting something basic but not this basic! We were put in room 9 which is nothing at all like any of the nice pictures on the hotel website. It smelt moldy and musty, the bathroom was dirty (spiders and hairs in the shower) and we were charged a $10 deposit for the TV remote control (like we'd steal it or something?!) The vertical blinds didn't even close properly in the bathroom so we could see out on to the courtyard while standing in the bathroom, the curtail bar in the room was snapped in half, the cleaners were yelling to each other in Spanish from 8 in the morning on both days and the noise from the courtyard went on until about 3 in the morning and it was right outside our room. There are also rooms on the upper level but we didn't fancy dragging 4 heavy cases up the stairs with us for what would probably be a bad room too. We arrived tired (and in a taxi) after a long trans-Atlantic flight and had paid in advance, else we'd have left. Breakfast was donuts, high-sugar yogurt, high-sugar cereal, coffee with powdered (ugh) "creamer" and apples, so we headed to the nearest Denny's on the way out instead to get a decent meal. I'm not sure whether the prices were high because of Spring Break or if they always rip people off that much but the place was worse than some of the hostels I stayed in while backpacking around Asia. I can't think of anything to recommend this place. Even the Burger King across the street was closed down. The staff weren't friendly either. None of them gave us so much as a smile. When we left they didn't ask how our stay was, and the Spanish girl on reception spoke very poor English. I'd suggest you avoid this place like the plague! I am going to attach some pictures so you can see the mold on the walls, the cracking, peeling paint on the walls, and the poor state of the room. We stayed here for a couple nights before a cruise but would never, ever stay again, not even for free.
