2/5

The grounds are beautiful and the room was beautiful. The woman that checked us in was very nice too. The problem started when we came back from our time walking around. The couple above us were walking around their room until 10 pm and sounded like a herd of buffalo. When we could no longer stand it, we went and asked the young woman watching the desk if she could help us out as we had a 6:00am departure the next morning. She clearly had NO customer service sense and very snotty answered, “what would you have me do? Tell them to not walk?” She then proceeded to tell us that 3 other guests had complained and the resort was waiting for supplies from Spain(???) to fix the room. HOW RIDICULOUS. Even expressing some sympathy would have gone a long way. Then, the same two women who stayed above us took our packed breakfast that was prepared by the resort for us to take as we could not stay for the included breakfast in our booking. Apparently the resort did not bother to put a label on our breakfast to go.

Beautiful hotel and wonderful staff. However, some wash cloths in the bathroom would be nice. Hand towels are really too big to use for this purpose.
