I stayed here nearly 2 years ago and even wrote a review about it here. I must say that I won't be back. This is a true disappointment. From the moment of check-in, when the desk clerk stated that I could have saved money by booking directly with the hotel instead of online, I felt rubbed the wrong way. Arrival at my room confirmed my disappointment.
Water won't drain in bathroom sink. The room just feels unclean. The room and decor are certainly in desperate need of an upgrade. Air conditioning works too good. Can't find a comfortable level. Noisy too.
Parking does stink here. Make sure your back-up skills are polished before parking here. You'll need them.
The beach bar is a nice perk and they have live music daily. $3 for a cup of draft beer (10 ounce?) is a bit pricey, but this is a resort so expect to pay resort prices. My room was adjacent to the live music and I can't say that I could hear it. I think the air conditioner drowns out the outside noise.
The bottom line: When I walk in and the clerk tells me I could have saved money, well, like I said above, that rubs me the wrong way. If I weren't such a nice guy, I should have said "Shut up and give me a discount".
Maybe if they'd dump some money in and clean up and upgrade, I'd come back. In the meantime, should I decide to come back to this area in the future, I'll be looking for some place else to stay.
