Disgusting. Not Worth The Money.
Let's start with the hotel. There is no lift, so I had to lug my bag up two flights of very STEEP stairs. The lady saw that I was single and alone, so I believe she gave me the worst room. The room had no window, and the walls were filthy with stains of God knows what. The furniture was old and the bed had springs coming out of it. I pulled back the comforter and there were long black hairs on the sheets. The air conditioner was barely working and there were no remotes for the air conditioning or the TV. She said, "You have to do everything manually. I also told her that I was new to the area and wanted to take an Uber to the pier to take pictures. She rudely mocked me and said, "What do you want to take pictures of". Ok, in all of the pamphlets that I picked up it said that the jhetti was one of the best places to take pictures. I stopped communicating with her. Also, after leaving the room, I realized there is some sort of mold or allergy in the room because I was stuffed up and couldn't breathe the entire night.
The town - This hotel is in a horrible location and it felt very dangerous. It was apparent they do not like single women travelers. There was no decent place to eat breakfast or lunch. I went to the only coffee shop around the corner, and the woman rudely stated when I wanted a basic hot coffee, "Maybe in 10 minutes". I left. Although there are duty free shops, after exploring the merchandise, it appeared that most of the merchandise was expired, old or dirty. I bought nothing.
Also, I went to the night market and was stared at and looked at like I had 5 heads, as the men and women refused to serve me. This is not a welcoming area for foreigners or white women, and they will refuse to serve you. Also, two times I went into the local market to get water, and although they actively refused to take my credit card, (Cash only), I saw both had active and open credit card machines. This is overall a very unwelcoming, sketchy area and I would AVOID at all costs. I would recommend staying closer to the beach. I took an Uber away from this little town and the areas outside this town were PERFECTION.
This is a really bad area. I am a single woman, and a foreigner.
