To be completely fair we were not expecting much from the hotel after reading all the reviews but we still decided to book it as it was the best option for our one night stay going and coming back from Nicaragua.
The hotel doesn't have an elevator so if you have a room upstairs and a trolley with you then good luck as you need to take them up the stairs and back and there are not only 5 stairs to go up.
The room we had smelled funny and in the end we decided to sleep with the windows opened. We realized the smell came from the mold on the ceilings and also we had dust nets hanging next to the curtains.
The room itself is big but it gives you the feeling that everything is old and haven't been washed properly. The bathroom is quite small and as a recommendation I would not step barefooted in the shower. Everything gives you a sensation of old, dusty and unclean. The sheets were meant to be white, I would rather say that after so many uses and washes they were rather a white-grey color.
When we came back and was given the same room, we complained knowing what was waiting for us but then they said they fixed the mold problem. Indeed they added a layer of white paint which smelled so badly we again had to sleep with our windows opened. Do not know which smell was worse the mold or the paint covering it.
The breakfast I would say was rather decent but if you come in late then do not expect to find too many things to eat from the options. And the people serving and cooking for breakfast don't seem rather keen of making more if they do not see too many people sitting at the tables. Birds come and eat from the crumbles or dishes on the table but I did not mind that much to be fair.
The place has a pool, place for kids to play and quite spacious but again it gives you the feeling of old and not maintained so even with all these extras it doesn't improve the experience.
Like I said we were not expecting much from the place but we were expecting at least to be clean if not the newest hotel in town and it was not even that. If other options we would pick another place for sure. less
