on "boardwalk" on beach, no parking
Posted Nov 20, 2016
On the "boardwalk" on the beach, nice breakfast out on the terrace overlooking the beach. No parking at hotel, paid lot a couple of blocks away. Hard to get to if there are cruise ships in town, because they block off the roads for those first two blocks before you hit the beach, to control traffic. YOU CAN MOVE THE BARRICADES. We found that out after we made several loops around trying to figure out how to get to the hotel, then finally parked on a side street, left our luggage in the vehicle and walked to the hotel. Like any island customer service is sorta hit and miss.
Expedia reservation says I got free wifi, and breakfast for two. Hotel staff said their reservation didn't show either. They tried to charge me for breakfast, and made me work it out at the front desk. After emailing them my confirmation email from Expedia, they reluctantly comped breakfast. However, we never did get wifi for two people. The user name and password would only allow one. (It gave an error message) Front desk said no, that three people were included, and didn't give me a way to correct it because I was already checking out at the end of my stay.
Interesting shopping right there, for a few blocks in each direction, but it goes from nice to sketchy and back again, so take care. If you're there when the cruise ships are, you'll be approached by someone outside almost every shop with a coupon or some freebie to get you to go in their store. Feels like panhandling after 10x...
