We booked our honeymoon at the Marley, but ended up staying only one night and switched to the Atlantis. The hotel itself is quite pretty and unique, but there were lots of issues:
- Ants in the room. If there were no other problems I could have accepted this, but it's still disappointing when you think about how much you are spending per night here!
- We arrived after a very long flight, went to take a shower and they had shut off the water to do some repair. It would have been nice to be warned this was happening! They got it back on pretty quickly, but still.
- The restaurant here is a joke. We tried to go to Simmer Down for dinner and they were not serving anything off the regular menu, only a prix fixe menu that was much more expensive. Also, you could only pay in cash. Why this ridiculous policy?? As a tourist I want to carry as little cash as possible. No wonder there was no one here.
- Breakfast was also a strange experience. They said no chef was around, but that they did offer a free continental breakfast of coffee, juice, bagels and fresh fruit. The food was good, and service was pretty fast. Then he presented us with a bill, which he said was only for accounting purposes and we wouldn't be charged. Why do I have to sign for something which is free??? I'm still not entirely sure that we weren't charged for it, and either way, that is extremely confusing.
- They advertise free wifi in the rooms, but the room we were in barely got a signal at all. We had to ask three times to get an ethernet cable brought up to use instead.
- Not much beach area. The waves come right up to the front of the hotel, so forget about taking a long walk on the beach here.
- Walking anywhere in this neighborhood is dangerous. There are no sidewalks and only a small shoulder. We tried to venture out to find places to eat and it is a bit of a hike to get anywhere. You can take the #10 bus, but it only runs until 5 or 6 pm.
Overall we felt this hotel had so much potential and we really wanted to like it, but we just wouldn't have been happy had we spent our entire vacation here.
