9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Breakfast and staff was amazing. Will stay again when I visit SA if the cockroaches are not there
Cons:Only thing that was not pleasant was the tiny cockroaches all over the bathroom and coffee area.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:I liked how the front desk staff tried to manage the terrible situation
Cons:Room service food was very bad, it looked and tasted like left overs. Breakfast was worse
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Proximity to the beach Ease of check-in/check-out
Cons:Inability to have iron & ironing board; forced to use hotel valet
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:Location was good for day activities only
Cons:First impression was the condition of the building, very outdated, very inconvenient ascent of stair from parking lot with all the luggage. Internet never worked in room, even after getting vouchers from staff. Bathroom had moss on floors and outside furniture was disgusting. The breakfast room staff kicked us out when requesting a cup of juice 30 mim before opening due to an early tour we had. Overall very dissapointed.
