Don’t stay here! When we arrived, their phone surface was down and we weren’t able to check in. They said they would call us. We showed back up an hour later and they were checking people in and never called us! Then they didn’t have our reservation when I presented the confirmation number to them. Took over 30 minutes to process our check in. I asked for a beverage from the bar while we were waiting for the inconvenience and she told me it’s not their fault then I gave her my number and said oh, you are entitled to two complimentary beverages. We went to the bar and they said it was only for a soda! After questioning the same agent at the front desk, she confirmed. Very frustrated by now. Went to our room only to find out it was already occupied by somebody else! We walked in on them. After going back downstairs to get another one, she still said that we were not entitled to anything complementary because it’s not their fault. Once finally in the room, the air-conditioning was set at 16°C (61°F). It never got cooler than 24°C (78°F). The phone in the room did not work and we tried calling them via the published phone number and they never answered. So I had to go back downstairs and of course no fan! This place absolutely sucks!!!

The location was right next to the beach, the hotel was clean & modern, the bed was comfortable, the staff was friendly, no complaints. I will be staying with IBIS again because of the great value, the hotel has everything you need at a great price.
