Travelled with group
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Run down place
The door safety lock was missing and the shower rose was so bad that it wss a waterfall not a shower. Staff offered to get switch it with one from the next room. Asked why it was not replaced and was told the owners have been repeatedly told about but they were ignored. No ceiling fan only an a/c which is unsuitable on cold and rainy days or if you have dry skin and avoid using too much air-conditioning. Cracked loose ceramic tiles both in the room and entrance to the rooms. I made an online booking for a room with 3 single beds viewing picture on website. But on arrival l was told they no longer do online bookings and therrfore was forced to pay more than l bargained for by taking a family room. But it is walking distance from Galo if you dont mind using the short cut.
