Once or twice every year, for the past seven years, I have stayed at this hotel for a couple of days each time I have had visitors. I love the spectacular and relaxing setting; but regretfully, more and more each year, I notice the decline of this magnificent place. Our rooms this year smelled, one of mold and the other of a strong disinfectant. One of the balconies had at least 1/2" standing water due to a plugged drain, the other balcony lacked the hammock. There was only one hand towel for two adults--not even face towels. The TV reception was very poor. The lobby furniture was dirty and some chairs were wet. The corners of the rug curled up, and I saw several guests trip and almost fall. The sunday brunch was good as usual, and the other meals acceptable. The staff was attentive, but the place is in dire need of maintenance.
