  •   A resort for masochists

    The worst 'resort' I have ever stayed at. Small, dingy room painted a sickening blend of brown and dark green. Meat hooks above my bed, presumably to hoist a sling. Two of the bathroom 'lights' were in fact heat lamps that operated only on a timer. The shower head was positioned at only five feet, making showering very difficult. Electrical outlet plates were literally falling off the walls. The room was so dark I had to ask for a clip lamp to use at the desk. When I asked the manager for my bedsheets to be changed on the second day, he stated that the hotel policy was to change sheets only every three days because 'some of the guests (paraphrasing) urinate and defecate on the sheets'. When I insisted that my sheets be changed daily - in accordance with its own website advertisement - the manager threatened to call the police. All this for $175 a night. A complete nightmare. Avoid under any circumstances.
