Stayed there recently on a business trip. Was not greeted warmly. The rooms were serviceable but not terrific. We had supper there both nights and had to wait at least 90 minutes from order to food arriving. Food when it came was also average. A/C was centrally controlled and came on at 4:00 and off at 9:00 am. The hotel is located near a night club so the noise was quite loud until around 11:30 pm. Not too far from the airport though.
This locally oiwned 35 to 50 room hotel sits just off Delmas Avenue, the main thoroughfare connecting Petionville with downtown, areound 50 north, a nice location in a nice neighborhood. The building appears nice, paited white with lots of Haitian art. Its clientele is mostly Haitian Americans visiting family, home for a visit etc. The rooms are just ok at best, some not nice, and most could use a facelift. The complementary breakfast is not good and needs major imporovement. But they will do a fresh egg if you ask. Parking is free. A disco is directly in front of the hotel and does keep the guests in the front of the hotel hopping until midight. Lots of young gals and guys ready to share a story. The hotel was near my customer and I had a car and therefore did not feel trapped. At night, when the roads are empty, the location is ideal with a quick shot in all directions to all of the Petionvilled or downtown restuarants and attractions. This is not the Ritz but at $50 to $75 a night, how could it be? It has a pool and free internet in the lobby, not the rooms. The owners live on premises and I wish them the best so they can make enough money to do the needed improvements. Haiti is somewhat on the rebound and the fear and anxiety that characterized so much of Haiti for the first couple of years of the earthquake is giving way to realistic optomism and renewed hope for better things.…
We went to PAP, Haiti for five nights as a couple of well traveled veterans ,We drove across the border from the Dom. Republic, two and one half hour nightmare just to get in, We arrived at the Hotel about an hour later .This hotel was way over priced a$40 dollar a night for $80. The reception was OK but the room was very small ,the pool was nice but small, the service was slow and the breakfast was average at best, the meals for lunch and dinner were over priced and not good, only ate one meal other than the incl. breakfast here. I can not recommend this place or PAP . Richard K
My friends and I are just back from a visit to Haiti and I thought it might be of some interest for you to get a free sample of the state of mind we are in. 1 - We are four friends, French, Irish and two Americans, spending usually 3 to 4 month in DR during the winter season. This year we decided to spend a week across the border. 1 - We came as 4 tourists, recreational tourists, and we came through Jimani border with my jeep, registered in DR. In between the real police and the fake one, Immigration taxes, Custom taxes, Agriculture Taxes, Special cross border Insurance and Daily stay taxes, on either side, we paid US$ 695.00 to get in and US$ 380.00 to get out. All of that was paid to people with guns and official uniforms or badges. Some of them just disappeared as soon as they got paid. Some officials told us we should not have paid anything out of the offices, but did not explain how to run over armed police in uniform… 2 - We managed to reach Ideal Villa Hotel, rated 3 Hibiscus, 2 bedrooms at US$ 100.00 a night each. We thought at that price, we might get a decent service. The staff was always all smile. That is the good side of the experience. The reception desk did not have the first clue about what to visit, where to rent a car, where to eat or how to hire a taxi. At some point, we came to the conclusion they did not even know how to use a phone. This kind of hotel in DR cost anything between US$ 20.00 to US$ 25.00, but then comes with a working air-conditioning, XL bed, kitchenette, fridge and decent size pool. Here you get cheap plywood furniture, windows walled, broken lamps, broken sockets and bare bulbs. 55 minutes to get a plate of potato trims and 90 minutes to get a tea bag with a cup of lukewarm water. This hotel has no alarm bell and no evacuation plan. Both items that could come handy in case of fire or earthquake (Yes, that might happen…). But it gets better. This hotel is completely locked at night with grills and padlocks. I had to get medicine from my jeep at night, but the guard did not have the keys to open any exit. Eventually, 40 minutes later, someone found a set of keys hidden behind the bar, but none of them worked. We were trapped as rats. Scary !!! 3 - We eventually found a taxi to pick us up at the hotel. The rates to get to Port au Prince were US$ 100.00 to US$150.00 depending on the destination. When we expressed our surprise about such a high price, he said: - Why do you care? It is not your money. I make you a receipt for twice as much if you wish, so you will make money too. We did not understand immediately… We met a lot of foreigners, but all of them were on a mission. Some trying to get a kid out (also called adoption). Many all inclusive rats spending all kind of charity money. A good few engineers/builders busy with the reconstruction of the Tax Centre Buildings and churches, the first get money from the rich and the last get it from the poor. Security? No problem. Even at night in the slum of Cité Soleil. Poorness is not contagious. The poor… pathetic victims of an administration and a belief that keep them well under control. "Misery on earth, glory in heaven". For as long as they believe in that, we are safe. Thank God!…
Our local Haiti logistics office booked this hotel. Only the front desk person spoke English. Cold bottled water was available for purchase. Common areas appeared clean and well decorated. Room was small, did not have fridge as advertised. Electricity and internet were spotty at best. Changed rooms due to non-working a/c (a necessity in Haiti) and non-working toilet. Seemed adequately clean. Little to no-hot water, no shower head and only 1 towel. Door locks were insecure and music played loudly late at night from a property nearby. Staff were friendly (but did not speak English), food was adequate and fairly priced. After two nights, we relocated to another property up the mountain it was more expensive, but still within our US government per diem rate.
