DO NOT STAY HERE
The reviews for this hotel must be fake. It’s on a narrow plot of land, everything is cramped and cheap. Whatever you do - DO NOT STAY HERE. I’ve spent over 3 years living in hotels around the world and this memorable for being the worst - don’t be fooled by very clever marketing. Management are sharks. Sleep in your car or on the beach - better than paying money for this place.
