Where to start!
1:It seams the staff dont understand the concept of air-conditioning, I tried to explain it cools the air in a room and doors/windows need to be closed for it to work correctly. They insisted the wind helps it.
2: No kitchen facilities, when we asked for food on the first day it took about 2 hours to make a steak and chips, which was horrific! I mistakenly looked in to the kitchen and all I could see was a tiled room with a tap and a stack of filthy ''clean plates''. there was a cat running round and the veg was just left on the side covered in fly's. We had no choice at times to eat here because of cash flow. Had loads of money ''just could not get it out of the banks''. All three of us staying there had some sort of illness such as Diarrhea at one point.
3: Pool was used as the local community pool with swimming lessons for screaming kids and some sort of aqua aerobics for the elderly, who swim fully clothed for some strange reason? prehaps to wash at the same time. Pool was also filthy and not correctly maintained.
4: It smelt of raw sewage every time the sea went out - probably due to the fact the locals went out to relieve themselves hoping the tide would carry it away. And I had a see view (how lucky was I)
5: Rooms electrical was a death trap, plug sockets hanging off and no controls for air-con. whenever it rained the water came flooding in to the room from the balcony, and tracked along cables back in to the room and dripped over the air-con and TV.
6:electricity was from an old generator that broke-down constantly and the internet failed at least once every 20 minutes. The hotel staff had no idea how to fix it - i witnessed a few times trying cables in different sockets and unplugging phone lines, I had to tell them that leaving it outdoors in the sun was making it overheat.
5: no hot water anywhere in the hotel. not even the kitchen for cleaning.
6: really expensive!!! there prices were the same as the Sheraton for food, I refused to sign for food a few times because it made us ill. The Sheraton and other hotels were full ''so if your thinking why did we stay here we had no choice! it was a bout $5 for a plate of chips and $20 for a steak. Worst meet ever though! really bad quality.
I could go on but I think you should have the general picture by now. I will post some pictures also.
Room Tip: Use the Sheriton its far better quality, you pay a bit more but being able to eat without the...
