From the moment that we arrived at the hotel , the staff was extremely unprofessional . Any questions that were asked to front desk staff were met with absent looks and little to no response . At the tiki bar , bouncers and staff were too busy flirting with local females that appeared to be underage , to keep the place from feeling unsafe . All amenities were crowded and poorly maintained . The beach was regularly littered with beer cans , bottles and other "unmentioned" disgusting items through most of the late evening until around noon each day . Children's playground was inaccessible to my child because grown , drunk men were constantly on the swings and slides ! SHAME ON THIS PLACE AND THEIR STAFF !!! Forget about wave runners , sailboats , etc. , no way I'd pay to rent those things when the evening before , local kids "pretend" ride on them .
In summary , the inmates are running the asylum .
