2/10 Poor

Mal servicio - No recomendado ojo!!!
No recomiendo este hotel por falta de seriedad del propietario: La reserva estaba para el 21 de marzo y cuando llegamos al hotel, los que cuidaban dijeron que el propietario se habia regresado para Riohacha y se había llevado las llaves de las habitaciones por lo tanto no podían recibirnos. También comentó el conserje que no estaba funcionando la planta eléctrica y efectivamente todo estaba en oscuras. Con el hotel no es fácil la comunicación: a pesar qué hay un número celular no contestan ni las llamadas ni los mensajes de whatsapp. Los deja como leídos pero no responde. Tuvimos que alojarnos en otro hotel. Íbamos con niños.
