Having Family at beach is a must at The W hotel! Ricky and Josh who are hospitality managers on beach Were nearly perfect with almost everything you can need. The Boucher Brothers team on beach part of The W, work the recreation side & they were just as professional and coordinated to the spec about everything! However the experience went downhill from the bar… the staff in bar extremely excellent!!! Carry themselves well and greeted me with full smiles!!! As I’m ordering some drinks by the bar… Im guessing they have a service window on to the side for in pool service… there was a lady by the name of sienna who rudely walked up to me and told me that I had to move out the way… “our introduction”…. as I told her I was buying drinks she told me “You still have to move out the way we are busy” at this point… I told her i was someone who’s paying for drinks and spending money… and she still seem to not care. She walked away and spoke to another lady in same purple dress she was wearing and it made my entire energy shift towards the negative! The other lady hovered around bartenders and made there environment cloudy and for the worse… I walked back out to the beach and lady with purple dress and a man with glasses hovered around my family while we were simply trying to have a good time. I was with my 4 kids my pregnant wife and it made our entire stay that was almost perfect at the end of day turn to nothing. Although, I do appreciate the hospitality from the other staff. I will more than likely never go back to W because of the hospitality from whoever the ladies in purple dresses were.
