Disappointing
This hotel has a lot of regulars, I can see why because they are treated exceptionally well. Those that are first timers... buckle up, it’s a bumpy road. The rooms are old and filthy. My first room had mosquitos fly out of the refrigerator, my second room had stains all of the walls and spatter on the toilet. On the beach, staff moved my personal belongings while I took a swim because a regular guest wanted to sit there. I got to breakfast a little early and was told I had to wait 4 minutes for coffee because breakfast hadn’t started yet and the manager would be upset. The SPA is wonderful!!!!! Honestly the best part of my stay was my time getting exceptional service at their spa. I’d recommend the African potato massage and rejuvenating facial. The beach is nice, but be prepared to be hassled by people selling trinkets in the 15 steps to the water. Overall just disappointed with this “5 star” hotel and 2 star experience.
