    Just as others have said, the hospital is small and not as advanced as US hospitals. But has all the necessities.

    If a staff member does not speak English, they will get someone who does immediately. You will not be ignored or blown off.

    The day time and hotel nurses are out standing! The hotel doctor is also ...
