You can't make this stuff up.
A guest at the Maho Bay Camps blasted the eco-resort on Yelp.
Vasyl F. of Rego Park, New York said, "This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in."
The Queens borough resident said the description of Maho he read on Expedia.com did not meet his expectations.
"No ocean view rooms … and no mountain view … they charge even to lock your door … tents are 30 years old and leaking, and cracks in the floors are so wide that cockroaches and lizards are flooding the dwelling. Restaurant is extremely dirty and the food is all from cans and is made in China."
As for being an 'eco-resort," Vasyl said, "They just don't repair the hotel and don't clean the territory, besides all their furniture, tables, plates, glasses and many more things are made of cheap toxic plastic which is definitely not eco-friendly."
In rebuttal, anyone who knows anything about Maho Bay also knows that Vasyl's expectations were way off the mark. But, he may not be alone, given what The Inquiring Iguana found when he slithered to Expedia's Maho entry.
For starters, Maho describes itself as a three star "Coral Bay hotel with a private beach." Misleading, some could say. The Expedia description of Maho is also, shall we say, 'generous.'
Maho's 'amenities' are listed (see below), suggesting the rustic resort, with accommodations from $80/night, could compete with villas. (It's the Select Comfort mattress that really caught The Iguana's attention.)
The Iguana understands how Expedia wants Maho to present itself in the best light. But, he also wonders how a smart guy from Queens could make the assumption that he was staying a a luxury-like hotel when the Expedia site reservation screen offers "tent cottage." That's a pretty good clue to what he's going to get.
