Response from the owner We are sorry that this guest tried to blackmail us for not refunding the money for her remaining nights. This lady told us that she would post a terrible review about rats and bugs unless we refunded the money for her remaining nights. This is against TripAdvisor Refund Policy. This lady did have a family of 4 rats come into her suite. We have never had this problem before. We immediately had the rodents dealt with professionally, and offered the lady the more expensive Executive Suite at no additional charge. This lady then stayed in the Executive Suite for over a month. She moved out of the Executive Suite with no notice, and took the suite keys. This lady also continuously harassed other guests and visitors staying at Xanadu. We can assure all guests that our property is very clean. Any unforeseen incidents with living in the country will be dealt with immediately and professionally. Come and enjoy Paradise.
