            Really really disappointed. On Agoda it clearly stated there were two sets double beds. I was meeting a friend from the other side of the world, we both got off over 30 hours of travel... Just wanted to sleep. Room we got only had one double bed. When we asked the staff they acted as though there were no double beds at all. Then layer I showed the booking, and they said oh yes, we've had similar complaints before. The room we were showed had a picture of two double beds, we believe they just put us on the wrong room. Noy helpful staff at all. No apologies. Also no water. Very disappointed... We should have paid for what was advertised. No discount offered either. I will never return here.
