Negative Reviews

Smoke smell and extra charges

Even in the non smoking rooms, smoke smell is strongly prevalent, which guests find intolerable. Some credit cards are charged additional sums without stating the reason inconveniencing the guests greatly.

Room issues

Ants are present in the rooms and run all over the microwave, any food kept and even into the clothes. Room service staff does not provide efficient service as towels are not changed and beds are not made every day. Bathrooms are not maintained well and shelves are dirty.

Pool water cold; breakfast needs improvization

Water in the swimming pool is freezing cold. The breakfast area is too small and the breakfast menu needs more variety.
