When you run out of water you can go to the office and pick up another 5 gallon jug for 40 pesos. The best way to install the water is by cutting 2 splits in the top of the bottle through the plastic cap on the top. This will help reduce the amount of water that gets spilled when trying to put a bottle back on the water dispenser. If you are not able to lift the water bottle the reception can bring over a new one for you.
The hot water tank is on demand and located on the back porch. If the water is to hot or to cold you can adjust the temperature by using the dial. The best temperature seems to be in the middle. If no hot water is coming out, more than likely the gas has run out. You can test this by trying to light one of the stove burners. If you can’t get the stove to light, then you are out of gas. You can go to the reception area and let them know and they will bring a new tank. If the reception is closed you can find one of the workers in the blue shirts and they can help you.
The internet company limits each customer to only 4 devices at a time. You can find the wifi password on the top of the router. If the internet stops working just unplug the router for 30 seconds and plug it back in. This will recycle it and usually start it back up. DO NOT HIT THE RESET BUTTON.
