THIS IS A FRAUD! We made a booking through hotels.com for four nights. We arrived and we were told that they cannot see our reservation. They promised to sort it out and we stayed the night there. Next morning they claimed that they still cannot see the reservation or the payment (which we paid beforehand). At this point I was sure that there is just some kind of misconception. I talked to two other couples and they had exactly the same problem as we did. Blue Wave Bungalow is doing this on a regular basis. After two nights Mikidadi throw us out as I refused to pay 100 USD in cash for two nights (already paid online). He has also refused to give any kind of written statement that we stayed only for two nights. This proves that he is doing this intentionally. Hotels.com has tried to contact them many times but without success.
