This was my second stay in Terracaribe. My first time was a pleasant friendly experience and that’s why I decided to stay in this hotel again.
What a mistake! 1st room I got, the toilet wasnt working so I was given 2nd room (the bathroom wasn’t clean: used shower gel and some wrapping on the floor) I would get over that.
Checking out next day: What made my stay absolutely shocking was behaviour of their receptionist (older guy) who asked for 100 pesos for a damaged towel otherwise I cannot leave the hotel! The damage was make up on a towel!!! Yes I washed my hands after putting make up on and make up stains are the damage. I told the receptionist to call a police because I’m not paying for a dirty towel & want to leave. Then he asked me to wash it in the sink! Shocking ridiculous and absurd that’s how I would describe my last experience in this hotel. There are hundreds of hotels in downtown. Save yourself money and stay somewhere else.
I went for 4 days with my family. Hotel was nice, clean, neat rooms, pool area is very calm and nice/ clean, A/C and wifi was great. Staff was helpful. Breakfast is very very poor ( toast, eggs, coffee). Bus stop R1 is 3 blocks away, about 8 min walking. Location is a pro. There is a mall very near, across the street there is a go mart with plenty of food and drinks. Taxis stop right outside of the hotel. Overall I would visit again due to location and clean rooms with all the basics!
