Poor 2.0
Exemption for foreigners was not granted bc we did not have the physical passport (and entry stamp). however we offer to present our 1. Digital copy of the passport and 2. Itinerary. FRONT DESK CLERK and manager in charge "MARTA DIAZGRANADOS" were hesitant about concession/ waiver of fees, lack of knowledge and resources for customers

Felicitaciones y sugerencia
En términos general muy bien, quizá hay que modernizar y/o remodelar un poco algunas áreas del hotel, principalmente el área de la piscina. El servicio es muy bueno y la verdad no tengo queja alguna.

Hotel bien ubicado en Rodadero con excelentes instalaciones y acceso al resort de la misma cadena que se encuentra al frente. Las habitaciones son grandes y muy confortables. Sin embargo el personal de la recepción podría ser más atento a los requerimientos de los huéspedes.
