    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The room was not like it was pictured in the least. The bedding was itchy and of poor quality. The bidet (has spots of urine and dark brown spots) and shower were not clean, the fridge was not in service (something another customer complained about as well). We got one towel per person, which was not sufficient for our body and hair. I will say the soap was good and smelled nice. The breakfast was varied and satisfactory. Fine for a one night but never someplace I’d return.

    It was close to major attractions. The room was clean. However, the bathroom smelled consistently of chlorine.
