The photo's you see on holiday companies website's are very cleverly taken,looking at the pool,building on your right they dont tell you there's a shanty town on the left.You know its there as a cockeral who cannot tell the time will crow from 1am-6am.The women doing their laundry & slapping down wet cloths on rocks will wake you at 5am,the bread seller will wake you at 6am by ringing his bell. while your having breakfast the children will stand at the edge saying "sweeties,chocolate" & indicate their hunger by putting their hands to their mouths!
A land owners right of way dispute between the hotel & shanty town means as you have meals/drinks, trucks,vans,tuk tuk's & herds of cows will walk through the hotel!
Again, the photo of a room on the holiday companies website is the only one decorated in this way, you can tell this as its the only room with reasonable condition/colour curtains.You can see from outside as its above the jewerey shop.
Our room when I walked in I cried! As you walked in a window on your left didnt have glass but ornate concret work letting bugs etc crawl straight in, ripped sofa & chairs, rusty fridge,no tv, table covered in fag burns! 2 v.hard single beds with dirty covers on & sweat smelling pillows, also stained. A fan that we thought would fly off the wall & air con that sounded like a cow giving birth! All rooms have another room like a utility room, with 2 poles going from wall to wall, no coat hangers but you could hang your towels over. no wardrobes, Shower room with broken soap dish,cracked mirror. Water spurts from shower head & we had to put a flannel over it so water didnt hit electrical water tank above! room changed after 3 days, only slightly better!
The only positive thing is the staff are nice & food not bad!
