Nice hotel with good service

This is a very nice hotel, but we weren't aware the beachfront location meant we would be exposed to the very loud music blasting from the late-night souvenir vendors lined up along the beachfront. The front desk changed our room to one facing a quieter side street, but the toilet in that room didn't flush well and the air conditioning was very loud. So the front desk again accommodated us and changed us to another room. High marks for their service and understanding of our need to get a good night's sleep!

Dreadful tourist hotel with one good thing going for it - location. At check in the bellman (4!) were standing inside talking to one another while I had to pull my luggage out of the taxi. Check in and check out were unnecessarily slow. The carpet in my room was dirty and full of burn marks, the shower was visibly full with k mold/mildew, the towel texture was thin, rough and had hiked in it. It was a terrible experience.
