BUT, the hotel is 20 kilometers from the airport, and it cost me $44 to get to the hotel in traffic, and $32 to get back to the airport....

We thank you for your review, we work hard in making our costumers happy. We want to make clear that the reason the taxi cost that amount was because the country's main highway is undergoing (January - February 2017) major changes therefore it closes during certain periods and during your stay, the highway was completely closed the day you arrived...

For a mid price range hotel this did not provide the necessities. Very poor supply of hot water - mainly lukewarm at best, particularly in the evening. No restaurant in the evening and no coffee making facilities. Room did include a microwave oven and a coffee maker but no supplies. The barred gate structure at the entrance may have added...
