middle of nowhere
Posted Aug 9, 2014
Not too far from airport, hotel in need of some TLC but ok. Nice pools and outside snack bar [shared with the 4 star hotel next door]. Plenty of clean towels but room facilities not great. 2 electric rings which after half an hour still had not boiled a cupful of water so had to use microwave to make a cup of tea. Toilet did not flush properly,the phone in room did not work and only two chairs on patio even though 3 staying in room. Decor in hotel very drab and in the 'lounge bar' very gloomy. Approx 1mile to nearest shops and bars etc along a very hilly, busy road in terrific heat with no shade. The 'main old town was a 10/15 minute ride after a 45 minute wait for the taxi. The town was so busy at one point nobody could move and it became a little frightening as people were getting pushed etc. Then another wait for over an hour in a queue of approx 500 people to get a taxi back. Not recommended with children or for the elderly or disabled, and not in August even if able bodied !
