A three star hotel in a crumbling four star shell
Posted Jun 30, 2013
A three star hotel in a crumbling four star shell. The strange, slightly isolated location adds to its....mystique...I suppose.
A nice enough foyer leads to old-fashioned check-in from the 1980s. The walk to the elevator is past closed/abandoned/hibernating "boutiques" and a photo (yes, **film**) studio.
If the strong chlorine smell coming up from the indoor pool doesn't put you off (near the lift), the broken gym equipment on the third floor will.
A nice enough view to the ocean spoilt by, at closer inspection on foot, moved-aside barbed wire spools and flotsam/garbage on the beach.
A sad, pensione-style breakfast in a cavernous reception-hall "restaurant".
