OK, so I know I don't want to overact, but the recent reviews of Villa Premier really have me worried. There are several reviews from people who have been there before, and mentioned declining service and maintenance concerns. At least 3 reviews (maybe more?) have talked about in-room safe issues - no batteries, or replaced and still not working, etc. This coming from both seasoned reviewers and repeat VP guests...
They express displeasure, for example, comments about the general direction of hotel not good (more buffets when they used to have none, and running out of decent liquors and/or wines) and several left being disappointed. I gotta say I don't want to be disappointed after dropping 4k on a vacation (including air, AI) I know vacation is what you make of it, and we know about these concerns, could go and just expect it - but it gives me an uneasy feeling.
We are set to go in 1 month...but now I'm wondering if I should consider changing to a different place...but not sure where? We originally wanted Dreams PVR, I ruled it out due to looming changes, and picked VP based on good advice and reviews here, I was looking forward to trying something a little different, and being close enough to town to walk around, but not too noisy/busy. Secrets is not available, and I don't want to try the Now. Others we looked at were Sunset Plaza beach, or Garza blanca....GB is pretty far from town, and SPB seems more limiting with dining options...so may have to consider non-AI, which may or may not be an option (depends on how willing Apple is to work with me.)
I know nobody is perfect.....Just not sure what to think. Thoughts from others?
