We've booked Coral Strand Smart Choice even if we've read the bad reviews in trip advisor. Please, don't do this, believe in the bad reviews.
We've made reservations for a Junior Silhouete Suite. When we got there, the girl in the reception asked for our credit card, charged the room and then sent us to a much inferior room. I'd given her my voucher, but she said it was not necessary. As my husband remembered, we denied staying there and it took half an hour to an answer: they were fully booked and we wouldn't have our room. More half an hour and they sent us to a beautiful room, with a huge balcony, fruits and champagne. We were happy!! But when we woke up, we saw a huge amount of bat or bird crap on the floor of the balcony. We've asked the cleaning, which has never been done.
When we were there, we saw lots of couples arguing in the reception and having problems with their "smart choice". I believe there is a huge possibility to have problems by staying there. Pick another hotel.
