Absolutely filthy. Nothing in the bathroom worked. Pool full of pond scum. Go somewhere else. Period.

4/10 Fair

Only paperwork for my check-in process was what I produced for the staff. No running water in the bathroom and no towels supplied. Mosquitoes in room. Nobody bothered to spray beforehand. Checked out after the first night and they refused to refund the balance of what I paid.
