We were picked-up at the airport by a Coastal employee for a transfer to the Hotel Slipaway. As soon as we arrived, the hotel was teeming with locals just standing around and/or wandering around. As soon as we walked into the hotel we were depressed at its first impression. They need to do a serious remodel of the entire place! We then took the stairs to our room and were sadly disappointed in the sparse and old furnished room. The bathroom shower was disgusting with its moldy, black grout covering 80% of the shower. Not to mention it was tiny, took almost ten minutes for warm water, and when in use made the entire bathroom floor wet. The sink counter is stained concrete and looks to be 20 years old and shabby. We also had a table with a missing top stuffed under the sink in the bathroom.
We were told we could make tea in the room that we had a kettle for water...wrong! We had of the makings for tea, just no kettle in the room.
We had a horrible time sleeping due to the noise level from outside. People were yelling, crying, and just loud.
I would never stay here again. We expected far better from a Coastal/Essential Destinations hotel!
