  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Staff & service

They surcharged the room service we requested despite the fact that the menu said service and tax where included. They claimed the breakfast wasn't included in the fee but it was. transport to airport and the rest of the services are very expensive.

We were here to bring a teen back to the US to live and study with us. This process had taken 3 years and when we arrived we were hopeful. Her visa was denied!! The entire staff could not have been more caring and helpful to our needs. Kudos to all of the staff, especially to Malcolm, Mohammed, Christine, Jefferson, Esther and so many more. Thanks to all of you for making our sad journey less painful.
