The concierge, restaurant staff, security and housekeeping of the hotel were nice and polite. The room and balcony were always tidy. The location is excellent and the price/quality ratio is ok. BUT, the travel agency GIADA that owns the hotel, as we were told, managed to ruin partly our travel experience. The city tour (45 US dollars including museum tickets, a lunch etc) was a lie. We took the tour and suddenly the price was 65 dollars, although the price was 45 on an advertisement in the lobby of the hotel. The guide explained that the 45 dollars was for a half-day trip, although it was not mentioned anywhere in the ad. So, a greedy person and we paid it anyway. The first visit was to aquarium of SD and while buying the tickets the guide looked at us and said that 60 pesos each. Naturally, we did not react to that because everything was included and he bought the tickets. We had an impression that he tried to make us pay our tickets. We visited many places and absolutely the tour was very good, the only disturbing thing was this “friendly” guide. When we came back to hotel we asked what about the included lunch, we have not got that. The reply from the guide was that he had bought us water, juice and soda. This was too much and my friend got furious and told the guide to go to hell. Eventually, we got 20 dollars back. So, we did not get back the other missing 20 dollars neither got we lunch. Later in the evening the announced price of 45 dollars on the ad had been struck through. Later, an American customer of the hotel, who had overheard our discussion with GIADA guide, said that it was not the first complain about that guide. So, some actions were initiated by our complain. The sums were are talking are small, but the principles of marketing, honesty and transparency are things that we value. And these kinds of actions by a third party may jeopardize the reputation of the hotel itself as well. And that should not happen, the hotel was ok.
