We arrived, and checked in, only to walk into a DIRTY hotel room. There was a dirty towel and coffee mug in the room, someone had also been laying in the bed. We then moved to another room, which was OK. It definitely wasn't 100% clean. There was no hot water. Only lukewarm, both in the evening and in the morning. We only had one coffee cup in our room. The wifi does not work in the room. We needed the shuttle back to the airport- the gentleman wouldn't take our reservation when we arrived, so we made it the next morning. The staff almost did not take our reservation since it was the same day, the gentleman should have taken it the night before but would not. Each staff member would tell you something different.
The pictures you see online are quite attractive, they show the best parts of the hotel.
It really is the little things that add up to be a subpar experience- no hot water, uncleanliness, no soap in the downstairs bathrooms, unkempt areas of the hotel, things that are half remodeled.
