I had high expectations of this hotel after seeing the beautiful photos and reading other reviews. I was disappointed for the following reasons:
1. Rooms were extremely small as well as bathrooms
2. When we checked in I mentioned I was on my honeymoon & the desk clerk merely replied that check in was at 4:00 and room wasn't ready yet.
3. Pool was dirty with lots of sand, some of the lounge chairs had bird droppings on them.
4. My husband got up early to use the hot tub (also dirty) and it had not been serviced yet as water level was lower than jets.
Attendant came by half hour later to service and clean it but unfortunately we had to check out by the time it was ready.
Positives include the following:
1. All staff with exception o front desk clerk were friendly and accommodating.
2. Valet staff were great.
3. Bed linens were wonderful, very luxurious & comfortable.
4. Room service was prompt and friendly.
My experience was the staff outweighed the facility. I had higher expectations than this hotel could deliver.
