Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The area where the hotel is located does not look safe. Also, my group was charged for a broken sofa bed which was broken way before we arrived and We are sure they knew about because the sofa bed was made (meaning opened and dressed with sheets) before we walked in the room and when we noticed it the next morning (thankful we didn’t get hurt) and told the front desk, we were told we had broke it - to avoid an argument and ruine our vacation we paid the damage that we did not cause ($130) - I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE STAY HERE - scamming tourist into paying for their broken furniture.
