Overall experience is good at TOTT Hotel ... Jessica the host at the front desk is so nice, she helped us a lot regarding booking some activities and also super sweet and nice ! The room was clean, A/C is working but only at 100% or off ... So either it's freezing or too hot. The pool is clean and quite. Don't expect to eat at the hotel, breakfast is the worst buffet I've seen, there's no restaurant (looks to be under construction) and the bar sucks big time ! The barmaid is smoking at the bar, the bar looks closed at all time, I wouldn't order a drink there for sure. We chose the hotel because it's close to the airport, we didn't want an all-inclusive and also it's cheap. So we can say we had our money worth, it's a 3 stars hotel, so don't expect too much.
