I've been to my friends 5 star hotel, I had a 3 star hotel, I upgraded to 4 star hotel hoping to rid of the mosquitos and in every situation there are massive amounts of them things

.....in the hotel lobbies, in the rooms, EVERYWHERE!!!! I woke up with my eye swollen with 3 bites on my eyelid, forehead, arms, legs, feet, ankles, EVERYWHERE this is killing me! I'm soon going to get lime disease or something!!!

WTF, I never seen them so bad in my entire life!

Generally mozzies don't like chilli, garlic or alcohol. So....eat/drink lots of these and sleep under a net!!!

100% DEET will kill them for sure...
Or maybe go back to a hostel, they don't like that smell either;)

Hello Zachary

If u dont hear mosquitos, then it might be another type of crawlie.
Bed bugs or fleas.

If u want to avoid mosquitos, completely at night, get a room as high up, in the hotel as possible. Mosquitos only go up so far.

There is also stuff, in the 7 11, with 95% DEET, in it. I forget the name of it. This will certainly keep them away, while u are out, at night. It is a bit strong, but in situations, such as yours...
