Stayed here for 2 nights July 2014. Rooms very small and dated. No AC which made the rooms hot and stuffy. No screens on sliding door so we didn't want to leave it open for airflow. Front desk was able to provide a fan which helped. After the first night, we went to the aquarium all day and returned at 2:30pm. Our room had not been serviced. I called the front desk and was informed that the housekeepers were on their lunch break and she would notify them when they returned. Took the kids to the very nice pool and returned to the room at 4:10 to find that the room had still not been serviced. I went to the front desk and spoke with the assistant manager who informed me that I had to request early service to have my room serviced in the morning. I didn't realize the 2:30 in the afternoon was considered early service. The assistant manager called the housekeeping supervisor and had the room cleaned within 30 minutes. She stated that they had 75 checkouts that day and had to clean those first. Apparently guests staying more than 1 night had to receive
inferior service because of that. Overall I was not pleased with my stay and would not recommend this hotel.
