I should have followed my first mind. I read all of the reviews but still booked this hotel. As I had read, the staff hounded me about going to the presentation at Taino Beach Resort & promised free gifts. Even though I disagreed, I let them talk me into it. What was supposed to take 90 mins actually took over 3 hrs of a beautiful day. We enjoyed a free breakfast, but weren't given all the great gifts that we were promised. During this trip, the ferry was down & we were told that it wouldn't be running for about 2 weeks, so we spent a good bit just on taxis back & forth to Grand Lucaya. You have to put up a $20 deposit just to receive your room keys. The items in the gift shop/store are overpriced. The walls are extremely thin. We were in an adjoining room, so everything that our neighbor said or did sounded as if he was in the room with us. As I told a couple of the people there, I went to the Bahamas as my getaway from work & to relax. Everyplace that we went, we were hassled about going to these resort presentations. I understand that tourism seems to be a big part of the economy there, but GIVE US A BREAK!
