The location of this hotel is amazing! It is moments from the old part of town, which has a multitude of places to eat out in. It is also a short stroll to the beach. The hotel is beautiful from the outside and we were assigned a large room with a lovely view. I did not especially like the furnishings in the room as they were quick gaudy but I think that this is just a question of taste and may be to other guests' liking! Found the shower a little odd and the water pressure was really bad-I had to run the shower for at least 5 minutes (I'm not joking!) before it was warm.
The front desk staff at this hotel is not friendly at all. We were not greeted with smiles or courtesy and tried to avoid interacting with the front desk agents at all costs! Although other Tripadvisor users have found Angel, the concierge, to be helpful and friendly, we thought he was quite rude. The bar staff was possibly the worst of the lot! Starwood really needs to provide the staff at this hotel will some training on how to interact with guests in a graceful manner!
