O hotel pede por uma reforma
Vários pontos precisam ser melhorados: ar condicionado antigo barulhento com apenas 3 niveis (alto medio baixo), cheiro de desinfetante forte no quarto, banheiros com piso liso sem antiderrapante... enfim, precisa de uma bela reforma.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I really enjoyed my stay but I have one complaint. The food at the buffet did not have proper labels. Specifically these labels were missing key ingredient for common allergies such as fish and shellfish. I ate a pepper oil sauce that was marinated in tuna fish. I'm severely allergic to fish and my air passages began to shut down. It was carnival so taxis/ubers could not reach the hotel and I was forced to call an ambulance for treatment. The staff was hesitant to call an ambulance but thankfully my friend insisted that they do it. So now I have a medical bill of undetermined amount. I contacted the hotel and they have not responded, which is unacceptable. A simple label could have prevented all of this an not put my life at risk.
