- Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
I made the biggest mistake and assumed that the beef sourced by the only restaurant at the huni would be free of staphylococcus aureus but within an hour of eating a beef Tagalog that was nothing more than a plate of strips of beef coated in a sauce to disclose its poor quality, I was subject to the start of the cycle of a major food poisoning. The vomiting followed by diarrhoea pretty much dominated my stay and I had to extend from two to three days at significant cost (was made to pay higher rate) for the room so that I was well enough to travel by sea back to mainland. I lost over 4 kg in 24 hours and am still recovering from the episode. The meat for the huni is transported by sea (small boat). I was told by locals whom attempted to explain why I was poisoned that the meat was sourced cheaply at the local port estancia market which I saw meat just hanging in the hot tropical sun. I am a very careful traveller when it comes to food and water and fell for the trap of four stars and a hotel trying to set itself up as a go to destination and charges you top dollar for that effort. But reality is they are barely operating and are building the main hotel near the airport that will be ready in five years. What’s there now is minimal. I would love to interrogate the Chef and kitchen but just want to let this go but warn travellers not to assume anything at the huni. It’s pretending to offer the quality menu but what comes on your plate has a big question mark over it.
