I stayed at this hotel for 1 night, and found the hotel in a bad shape and dirty. I checked in, went to the bathroom, and found out the toilet seat and inside of toilet was dirty (with obvious signs of dirt, like excrement or maybe blood!). I opened the cooler provided in the room, and found it rusted and dirty beyond believable. I went to complain to the front desk, and the employee said he would send someone right away to fix the problems; true: a guy showed up within a minute carrying a new fridge (which was in a nice shape but with dirt and one hair inside, and he did not clean it for me) and a girl showed up to clean my toilet with no rubber gloves on, so she could only clean the seat (not the inside) and she has a rug that smelled like alcohol (so no real detergent). At that point, I asked the FD to be moved to a decent room, but all they had was on a higher floor and the elevator was broken which means we would have had to walk up to the 4th floor with children and everything! And no discount even if my room was dirty!! The carpeting on the floor was horrible, the walls were broken, and the spring box to say the least gross with humidity or dirt signs (they could have covered it at least!). I was grossed out but there was no other available hotel in the island so there was no choice. At night a fight broke in into the hotel, a woman and a man were screaming loud and fighting and when we called the front desk they said they were not even going to call the police (to which my husband replied, then i am going to call them myself!). The employees were courteous, but they always acted like 'what do you expect from a place like this?" and I paid $125 for the night! Breakfast is a joke, they only have some cereals and coffee/juice and some packaged stuff that is almost not edible because terribly sweet (and the cheap stuff). The pool seemed cleaned, and they decorated it nicely with some modern lovely paintings, but I think the hygiene there was horrible, and somehow the employees did not care. They did not have a microwave in the room which I thought it was bad also. The other people staying at the hotel seemed the kind of people whom you would find in a bad neighborhood, and did not feel safe at all. The lock behind the door was also broken, so we could not lock the door at night, I did not complain because they made me feel like I was somehow bothering them. I would not recommend this place at all.
