How to Get There
My friends bought packages to watch the soccer games at BWP at $82.50 per person(taxes incl) we were told package includes unlimited finger foods , beer, soft drinks, raffle games and prizes. All we ended up getting was the food and drinks when we inquired about the raffle games staff told us they don’t intend on doing that day. I don’t know if it was laziness on their part. When we asked to speak with the GM, couldn’t find this inept person anywhere to report this. I don’t understand owners keep hiring foreigners to run their hotels in Haiti who are not sensitive to their clientèle needs. We regretted purchasing this package next time we know better. In Haiti the concept of refunds in most establishments does not exists.
Check in was smooth with a complementary drink. The room was spacious, bathroom was spotless. The breakfast was hands down the best breakfast I’ve ever had a hotel. I stayed at several different hotels while in Haiti during this trip. This was the last hotel and I wish it was the only one. This was not like a Best Western in the US. Excellent hotel!
This review is the tale of two hotels - one which is lovely and a great value; the other which is the story of disappointments and failure of management to either manage expectations or make amends.
My two children and I arrived at 5 PM after a long day of travel. While checking in, I was surprised to learn there would be an extra fee for the children - I had specified on the reservation that I was bringing them, but apparently the room price was only for the adults; so I was charged $20 extra per child. This is a bit annoying since nothing is included other than the room - I understand an upcharge when there is breakfast included, but their simple presence should not cause an extra fee. OK, so off to an inauspicious start.
As we waited for the check-in process (which seemed to take forever, maybe because of the extra charges?), I asked about whether there is a restaurant near the pool. There's not - the pool is tucked away in a small alcove off the lobby, with room around it only for a few chairs. It is very small - fine for toddlers, but anyone much older will be disappointed. But wait, you'll likely be even more disappointed when you learn there is no water in the pool! So there would be no swimming for any age. This was especially frustrating since we had chosen the Best Western over one of the many guest houses specifically so the kids could swim.
When I called to the attention of the front desk staff that the pool was closed (why didn't they mention it to me?) I asked if there was another hotel nearby that might allow the kids to swim as a courtesy to the BW. Alas no, and also no reprieve would be given on the room rate, nor any other offer of sympathy.
So we headed up to the room. Things are looking up; the room itself was lovely, clean, the wireless signal was excellent and the TV large and modern. The AC worked great, and the bellman was happy to assist with anything we needed.
What I really needed now was a drink at the terrace bar, but guess what? The bar was closed for a private event! Although there was a flyer sent to our room stating the party would be happening, and that we would be allowed to enter by showing our room key, In fact, that was only later in the evening. At 7, when some local friends and I wished to enjoy the sunset outdoors, we were told we were unable to enter. We were shuffled into the interior restaurant, which was cramped and quiet, and I am confident the waitress was not happy when I told her we would not be ordering dinner. (She was quite pleasant after the initial disappointment).
But we didn't miss out on the party completely, as we heard every bit of it until midnight from our room, which was apparently not far above the open air bar. After starting our travel early in the morning, I was looking forward to a restful night, but would need to wait until our next destination before that was possible.
In the end, I guess it is all what you need in a hotel. I was looking for a pool, an outdoor bar, and a good night's sleep, so I finished 0-3. However, the AC and wireless worked well and the bed was comfortable, so it could have been much worse.
Stayed here for 2 nights while in Petionville. This hotel is located in a great location and it felt safe walking around the area day and night by myself. There are many place to eat and drink near by all within walking distance. There is a large supermarket with everything you will find in the US only a block away. My room was large, clean, and as expected for a Best Western hotel. There was no refrigerator in my room and the included WiFi seemed to drop the connection often. The shower was hot but had very weak water pressure. The staff were professional but seemed very serious. My room was on the third floor and there was some event happening in the lounge on one of my nights on the second floor. It was very loud until late at night. Luckily I had ear plugs so I could get some sleep.The front desk didn't have any money for me for to exchange, but luckily there is a bank nearby. Overall, this place is just an average hotel by western standards but is probably one on the best in Haiti.
Pleasant staff and convenient location in PV make this hotel top class. All the basic amenities you would need are here, making it a pleasant place to stay. I've stayed here numerous times and I've stayed in other hotel in PAP too. BWP is doing it right and has figured out how to make it work in a sometimes difficult environment. Try the lunch menu at the restaurant - you'll be glad you did!
