The gentleman who checked us in was extremely nice. Our beds were clean and the room itself was overall clean. The bathroom however, specifically the shower was disgusting. The shower curtain was like paper and completely brown on the bottom. The shower floor was dirty, we wore our sandals we brought for the geothermal baths to shower. And the bathroom floor mat is an actual bath mat, not a towel that most hotels use that gets washed after a hotel guests stay. So it did not look like it had ever been washed or cleaned. Don’t expect to eat breakfast. It’s self serve and consisted of a few boxes of already opened cereal boxes and bread bags, which who knows how long the cereal has been sitting there and who’s hands have been in it. Also, there’s a small mini fridge with some cold cuts, cheese and cucumbers, milk and juice and some apples and oranges. But again the cold cut meat was in an open package, not wrapped and who knows how long things have been open for and who’s hands have touched what. My husband made a coffee to go, and we didn’t bother eating breakfast.
