I re-read my review of this property from 2010 and they made all the improvements that I suggested in that review. The white furniture and room decor held up well, the patios have furniture, the gym is much better, the pools are good, the housekeeping staff bring you what you ask for promptly, the doors open and close well, etc. The penthouse suites are very pretty and very spacious. I had dinner in the restaurant and breakfast from the lobby bar, both of which were decent enough. You can easily get a taxi from the hotel lobby. They have 4 elevators servicing roughly 14 floors which is very good. They have some spa treatments available now. The 7th floor pool and jacuzzi are great and it is an additional feature that it has the western sun whereas most pool areas along the beach are dark by mid-afternoon. The only negative experience that I had is they add 20% service charge to every check, even if you takeout from the lobby bar which involves no real service beyond putting bagels into a bag. This matters because at dinner I was presented a check that suggests a tip. I left a tip and then found out the next morning at checkout, when I noticed the charge was higher than I remembered, that an additional 20% service charge was added to the bill after I signed it and had left a tip. The front desk took it off, but I was extremely perturbed about it. I wonder how many other people have this happen to them. This is why Trip Advisor exists. Beware!
