Nice location/amenities; poor transportation/sleep
Posted Mar 22, 2016
The room and staff were very nice, and the location felt safe/secure or the night that we were there. We had made-to-order omelets for breakfast, which were delicious and complementary. However, there were two major flaws that are the cause for the rating. We booked the transportation from the airport, which was rated at $15 for two people (seemed reasonable, especially given that we were arriving at midnight), but it never arrived despite waiting 15-20 minutes past the agreed time. We thus had to take an airport taxi that cost $20 and were told at the hotel that the driver was now at the airport (which would be ~30-45 min after the stated time). The other issue was a poor night's sleep; as mentioned in other reviews, there are parrots in the premises, and though they are cute and endearing during the day, they are incredibly loud starting at ~6 am and squawked for the next 2-3 hrs. I did not expect them to be THAT loud and intrusive to our sleep, which unfortunately proved to be the case. With these critiques, I would still recommend the hotel (especially if you anticipate checking out early and would not be too disturbed in your sleep) given the nice people and location.
