Friendly staff, Rooms and Service OK, you get what you pay for.
However, I was robbed between the hrs of 4:00 am and 7:00 am while we were sleeping in our room... a severely traumatic experience to travel home without money, passport, ID or credit cards and this was supposed to be our dream vacation. This is, of course,not the Hotel's direct problem, but...
Since the robbery on December 1, 2011, I was told that apparently a second robbery took place at this Hotel, again - a purse and passport was apparently stolen from another Canadian guest.
Co-incidence or not, I feel compelled to write this, because I was told by the Hotel Management on December 1 that the advertised (posted) Video Surveillance System has not worked or been in operation for the last 2 years.
I do not know if it has been fixed since.........if it has, the recent robbery victim may be luckier than I was and the police may have a visual of the perpetrator(s)...
