2/10 Poor

Would not recommend
This place is an abandoned building disguised as a hotel!! BEWARE AND STEER CLEAR! I believe it’s being rented to locals as short-term rentals, I was the only guest that I could see. No available staff, no check-in or front office. The woman who picked me up from the airport handed me my room key, and also charged me $30 to pick me up two hours after I had landed. No credentials, unmarked car, and very BIZARRE! Upon arriving at this “hotel” the room had holes in the walls AND ceiling. I ended up covering the holes in the bathroom and shower to give myself some peace of mind that no one was watching me. There was no hotel room phone and no room services (food, bellhop, etc), no housekeeping staff available to replenish towels, no office to report to, my room was only cleaned once during my week long stay. I had no one to call when there was a lizard in my room that I could not get out. The windows also do not open. I was concerned for my safety while I stayed there. I tried to contact to get a refund and check into a different hotel during my stay but I could not find any number of contact information.

2/10 Poor

Was not able to check in. Upon arrival nobody was present. I walked around and shouted for assistance for a good 20-30min. Called number provided and no response either. Crazy part was we had messaged earlier to confirm my flight and time of arrival details. After getting fed up and traveling with my children, we had to leave and pay $200 elsewhere. I tried to cancel another booking I had with them and theey refused to issue a refund for both stays. They claim they were present and available when I have proof showing otherwise. Hotel on the outside seems sketchy as heck, pool area not too bad, beyond that I cant say. Very disappointed because the pictures make it seem like a nice place but upon doing more research, we were not the first people that this has happened to.

6/10 Good

Monastery Suites is physically a gorgeous property with unique architecture and interior design and beautiful artwork throughout. Perhaps due to Covid and labor shortages, the communication and service were subpar. There is no front desk or staff on-site and no available food as advertised. We had some contact with the hotel (management?) via the Expedia app, but there was a language barrier and delays in having our requests fulfilled. All-in-all I would stay again just with the knowledge of the property's defeciencies and a plan for food and transportation.

Required me to taxi to another property to check in. An extra $30 taxi fee. Very unprofessional that this was asked of me.
