8/10 Very good

I was a guest in the Amelia Santiago hotel from Jan. 18- Jan. 19 2020. room # 803. My reservation was booked with Since the card that was used for the reservation was an American VISA, it couldn’t be used as a deposit in the hotel. I covered the other expenses such as food in the hotel with cash. The personal never gave me any receipt for my expenses. I was under the impression that the manager at the restaurant “ La Casona” on the night buffet kept my money for her personal interest and didn’t report it to the hotel sales. She told me that I had to pay $45 for 3 persons. When I finished eating, I asked the waiter for the restaurant note. He said that the restaurant’s manager told him that we didn’t have to pay because we qualified as offer guests. On my way out of the restaurant, the manager told me that we had to pay there. She didn’t provide me with the receipt after I paid. At the Italian restaurant restaurant by the pool, it was the same story. We paid for food and the cashier didn’t gave us any source of receipt. Seeing how the hotel staff plays with the consumers to take advantage of the situation. Represented a stressful situation for me as a guest.

Well this Hotel doesn't meet the requirements for the Start rate they are sales price's. The A/C on Lobby and the rest of community areas they are permanently shut off, on rooms only running at 24°C. The restaurant offers are very poor. This hotel only has very good condition on pool area, this is excellent. By the way the towels for pool use are in very bad conditions. In my opinion this Hotel only has one excellent employee services.

2/10 Poor

Fraudulent behaviour
I absolutely need to have one night stay to be refunded to me. When I arrived late at night the clerk Maria didn't honour my booking and was forcing me to pay 300 usd in cash. If I don't receive a refund in the next 48 hours I will repoer both the hotel and hotel. Com to the pertinent authorities
