Hotel is very nice and includes access to the swimming pool and the beach of the other, better and more expensive, hotel. Beds are super comfortable and staff was amazing.
Breakfast could include more options, it was very basic.
During booking hotel provided two room options, but all hotel rooms are the same with two double beds. Rooms had a musky smell. Bathroom water pressure was low, and water took too long to heat. Breakfast was poor, and silverware on tables wasn’t properly cleaned.
VERY DANGEROUS - DO NOT STAY HERE. Although the restaurant closes at 10 am, when I tried to eat a snack inside the front desk agent told me I had to eat outside. While outside 3 gang members tried to rob me. I ran across the street to a restaurant where they continued to shout and wave their knives at me and the owner of the restaurant. Then a kid ran by them, Im guessing from another gang and they chased him, one of them striking the kid in the head with a rock at which point the other 3 continued kicking him. The restaurant called the police and I was able to sneak away in a taxi. This was 10 meters away from the hotel.
VERY DANGEROUS LOCATION - NOT SAFE. Though the restaurant closes at 10 am, the hotel does not allow outside food to be brought in. I sat down for a snack but was told by the hotel agent I had to eat my food outside. There is a gang that hides out 20 meters in front of the hotel and 3 of them tried to rob me while I ate. I was able to run across the street to a restaurant and the gang members stayed outside shouting until I was able to sneak away in a taxi. If youre looking for a relaxing place or place to take your family do not stay here. Also, check in took over an hour. Understaffed and front desk agent couldn't handle multiple tasks
The staff were very helpful. The beds are very comfortable. The pool is great. This was our third time at Tamaca.
