My bad experience started with check in. Check in time was 4:00 PM. Didn't get room until 4:25 PM to get room. Because of this my family had to miss the tour Scheduled. No compensation for this. Parking Fee was 53$. End up parking at nearby garage for 20$. Hotel picture is misleading. The way it's displayed is like a waterfront property but it's not. It's other side of the beach. This is simply to cheat people. Pool closes very early and not enough time to use it. Room bed was very low and not enough lighting and windows. Room was very small. I would definitely not visit this hotel again... Simply it's not worth it...

The room we stayed in had a very dirty bathroom. There were old food marks and stains on the countertops and the floor had a sticky film on it. The sink was damaged and the shower was very old. We were told our room was upgraded to a pool view but the room felt like a downgrade. We asked the front desk to send cleaning staff to clean the bathroom and nobody came. We asked to switch rooms and the front desk staff said that the cleaning staff has tried everything to remove the stains and nothing works - so they knew their bathrooms were dirty. We were very disappointed in this property, I personally will not be back and I think it is overpriced and there are much nicer hotels around the area.
