    • Disliked: Staff & service

    My girlfriend and I stayed here November 11th thru the 15th .we rented a car and went to rincon national Park for the day. On the way back we approached a police road block and were pulled over , the policeman asked for out drivers license and passport. I gave him my I’d and he instructed us to pull over because we didn’t have our original passport. He then said to give him $50 dollars or he was going to take us to jail and inpound our car. My girlfriend was shocked and scared because of his threats and aggressive behavior. I decided to give him the money so we could get out of there. When we got back to the resort we immediately went to the front desk and spoke to Laura who told us that this happens everywhere and it was no big deal. She actually made my girlfriend sick with here attitude. Instead of “sorry that happened to you “ she shrugged it off. No apology. In fact she said call the government. What a terrible representation she was for someone in customer service. If it’s so common then why doesn’t the Marriott info it’s guest. The hotel is in a secluded a difficult to get to area . It has terrible roads to get to as well. I would strongly recommend you find somewhere else to stay and definitely a different country. There are to many beautiful places to see in this world to visit then to spend it in a country that makes you feel unsafe. The incident was bad enough but the lack of empathy from the hotel personnel made it much worse
