Guest reviews for Punta Caracol Acqua Lodge

Couples (1)
1 out of 5
This property is extremely quiet but an undisclosed $60 round trip ride to town. ROOM: No airflow at all, there are fans but they are very weak. We got eaten by mosquitoes at night and had massive roaches in our empty drink glasses in the morning. No electrical other than lights. Not provided with daily water as they stated- this is a lie. They charged $2.75 per bottled Costco water. FOOD: Horrible! I was charged $13 for a Costco white bread sandwich with no condiments, wilted lettuce, smooshy tomato, canned olives, one piece of cheese, I added ham for an additional $3. There were finger prints where they mashed it to cut it in half. The food in the photos is NOT what you are receiving. This is bait and switch - it's NOTHING like it looks. FREE BREAKFAST: This is a lie - everything is individually charged and ended up being almost $30 if you wanted a full breakfast - butter was even $1, milk for coffee: $3, toast: $3, eggs: $6, etc. ISLAND: Not a relaxing hangout as it looks. There were turantulas scampering all over the trail into their dens. SNORKELING GEAR: NOT FREE - this is a lie. They charge $30 for a set. SERVICE: The staff is extremely rude. The young girl taking our order actually told us we were one minute early and made us wait 1 minute because it was 11:59 before she'd take our order, then she tapped her pen against her leg out of irritation because we were deciding. Owner lied about refund for stay- never received! She did credit the 1 meal we ate there.

First of all you need to know we are going to make a report to Expedia asking your name and reservation dates to let know everybody your comments are way far to be true and that you are doing this just to damage us for any reassons we even do not want to know at all for we do not care at all why are these your fatal intentions. But this is not going to saty like this. Expedia needs to erase your comments and our legal department will be in contact with you regarding these false accusations. Wait for it.
