1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
It smelled real bad of cigarettes. There is no air conditioning so was too hot. Couldn’t leave windows open as they didn’t have security stays. Only skinny pillows. People came and started sanding window sills and smoking on the job while we were inside. We were moved to another room but not much better. The reception was friendly and the room service was nice and gave us more pillows. Wouldn’t stay there again. The pool was filthy too.

Disappointing and dirty
If you like dirty dishes and bed sheets, with cockroaches on the walls then this is the place to go. I personally would not recommend unfortunately.
