The property was great, but our room was not. The pocket bathroom door really hard to open close, the jets of the bathtub did not work, and the security latch for the main door did not work either. Expected better from the property.

At check in the manager, Mr Kezai, told us we shouldn't have booked thru Expedia, but directly with Hilton. He offered an upgrade for 150/night, which we declined. Sure enough, the room he put us in, in a resort that probably was one forth full, was right against the parking lot (plenty of court side rooms available). The room had a clogged sink, a motor inside the return air vent that went on all thru the day and night. In the morning the shower had a sewer back up. They fixed all that and left a huge mess in the shower stall. Upon complaining they retorted with this was the room we booked. As if we had selected this room, which we didn't. We booked a one bedroom king size bed. So, the way I look at it, he simply put us up in a bad room because we booked thru Expedia. Conclusion: in the future we will probably avoid both Expedia and Hilton.
