3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff was nice and efficient. The grounds were well-kept. The pool was incredibly small and part was closed off due to renovation (that may have been a hot tub). The beach was small and filthy, so we did not even walk on it. The restaurant had a very small menu and the food was so-so. It was not very expensive, but further from town and in a bad neighborhood. It felt like a hotel that would have been nice 25 years ago. I would not stay here again.

2/5 Poor

Business traveler
Disliked: Staff & service
Not as advertised.
This was not as advertized and expensive. We arrived and it was dark and no one in the registration office. The staff we met did not speak english at all and it was difficult to navigate. In his defense he tried really hard and we did too. We were taken though a construction zone and to our room and left there with no instructions about food wireless or anything. There was no one at the front desk to ask. The room had tons of mosquitoes and the shower did not work. The beds were nice and the room seemed clean. Given how much we paid for this place I would say this was a very bad experience.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The pathway to get to the hotel rooms was all blocked off so we had to pull our luggage across the grass (not easy) where the lawn workers were cutting grass and blowing leaves & twigs! They looked irritated that they had to stop blowing to allow us to go by. We finally get to the room and are extremely disappointed....thank God I brought my UV sanitizer wand! Doesn’t look like they wipe down light switches, the pillow cases have stains, the tub/shower handles have rust, the sliding glass door screen barely slides on the track. Not sure they have EVER cleaned the window sill. We have a king sized bed with twin sized pillows. We realize that there is no power and call the front desk. We just needed to insert/leave the key card in the slot at the door they could’ve told us this when we checked in! We had to ask for the wifi before we left the front desk. She gave us the wifi and we logged in while at the Frontdesk, but by the time we got to our room we were no longer connected. We went back to the Frontdesk as were told that there was a different wifi for the rooms....!! We then came back to the room and used the sign in credentials for that wifi. However, right after we signed in it went out! We went back to the front desk and the second girl told us there was an issue with the wifi and it should be back up in about 90 minutes. Its fixed but it keeps going out! The roosters crowing right outside my door are a nuisance....not sure how anyone sleeps around here. No ice machine!
