They promised the world and Didn't deliever.We booked are stay for The New Years Eve Party.They promised lots of Activities,buffet & Free bottle of champagne.But im getting ahead of myself.First thing They Did not metion they are going through a major Renovation on the place.Our room was clean and air condtioning was cold.Thats the only positive.For the price you pay you would think they offer a tv bigger than 13 inch tv.They gave us clothe closet that particle board was about ready to fall apart.No towel racks in bathroom to hang wet towels.Oh they really went all out on giving you a 1/4 bar soap for the bathroom.Oh cell phone users theres no extra plugs for charging and in the bathroom had no plugs to hook up a hair dryer.So we worked around it we disconnected the tv and direct tv to get juice.No shower head in shower.Be ready to be knocked on your [-] from the steady stream of water.lol.food was very good.When we booked they said with the price of the room the new years buffet and a bottle champagne was included with the stay.Well suprize when we arrived that was not the case.We payed for the buffet upon arrival.And be prepared they prepared just enough for one sitting.Maybe i'm not familiar but usally a buffet means more than one plate of food.Entertainment was pretty good that evening.One thing that happen to me was I oredered a virgin Colada and when i received it I tasted alcohol in it.Well instead of making a new one they took it back to the bar stuck a straw in it and claimed it had no alcohol in it.Very Rude!!!!If they knew medical reason for me not having no alcohol maybe they would have treated me diffrent who knows???
Well to end a perfect evening (lol) we go to leave and the waitress asked us if we were staying at the hotel???Well if she was up on what the hotel was doing ,we had a wristband that showed we were stay at this fine establishment.We'll we found out why there were charges for the evenings drinks.They charged for the lemonade,colada and the glass of champayne.we didn't even get the bottle they promised my party to receive.
Oh by the way if you do decide to go there don't drink the water.Bring bottle water.There water taste like bleach.
This place has alot potential they just didn't show it during our stay
