Didn't pay a lot for this hotel and went in with low expectations having read previous reviews but the rooms are beyond basic and probably the worst I've ever stayed in. Safe wasn't working in the room and ended up having to take all valuables out with us. Door to our apartment was all cracked as if it had been...

The room (511) was okish, there was 4 of us but only 2 cups, side plates & glasses, & I think I saw a spoon or 2. Bath was badly stained, flush almost...

It's dead cheap, went with friends for a boozy week, was close to bars and food. You get what you pay for, of course there are little issues but you ignore them as it's so cheap! 5 mins from the beach, casino, and little shops!

Returned yesterday from a one weeks stay at the Ponderosa. I am not usually one for writing nor reading reviews but wish I had read the reviews on this occasion as they reflect much of our experience. We were all inclusive and arrived after midnight. There were no facilities to get a drink or food and so had to go...
