We decided to stay in this hotel to break up the journey in a trip going north to south. We will not make the same mistake again.
The hotel tries to recreate a staple of north american tourism: the hotel by the highway to stop off during long trips. Unfortunately it is a long way from meeting the standards of the US or Canada.
Although the staff was nice enough and the rooms decent, the hotel is in dire need of a face lift. In the rooms, the showers were barely functional and had no hot water. The restaurant food was awful and they brought us rancid orange juice (which they did replace). At breakfast however, both the juice and fruit salad were also rancid. The pool was unusable because of a large group of teens partying there all afternoon (they were not guests of the hotel) which did not matter much since the water was very dirty.
The only positive note was when we indulged in a very competent massage given by an employee of the nearby spas.
Overall, this was a mess and we couldn't wait to leave.
