What an interesting way to run a business. We booked the honeymoon suite & paid for 3 days of our 5 day stay weeks in advance, as the rules required. An email was sent to us the DAY BEFORE check-in (we were elsewhere in Mexico) stating that our room had accidentally been given to someone else & we wouldn't be able to have it until two and a half days later. Arlaine explained that we could stay in one of two smaller rooms (at even less of a discount than we were originally getting).
We don't normally splurge & get the best room in a hotel, so we'd been really looking forward to this special part of our trip & to not having to re-pack & move for 5 whole days. We had luckily checked our email in Cabo the night before we drove to La Paz & replied, telling Arlaine of our disappointment & saying we'd decide what to do when we got there.
At the end of our 3+ hr drive we arrived to find a NOTE ON THE DOOR TELLING US TO GO TO ANOTHER HOTEL. We were no longer even welcome on the property and no one would even give us the courtesy of receiving us?!?! Wow. Welcome to La Paz... now go away. I've never experienced anything remotely like this in 20 years of traveling.
