First of all, this is not a five star hotel. I don't know who is putting down five stars for this hotel but they either have really low expectations or are not honest reviews. I have stayed in five star hotels around the world and this doesn't come close. The entire hotel smells like deodorizer…like the smell of car wash office.
We were given a room which must be the worst room in the hotel by location. Next to the arcade games and the pool. This would not have bothered us but we were unable to stay in the room due to a heavy smell of deodorizer and cleaning chemicals. They must have been trying to cover up something from the previous guest. It was literally burning our eyes in the bathroom. The couch was dirty with and the bed sheet had a hole. The tile in the bathroom floor was black from mildew. They need to take this room out of service. When we asked to move to another room they said the hotel was booked and there was nothing that they could do for us. Well, apparently they hadn't met my wife because after a series of not so nice phone calls we were moved to a nicer room…which still smelled like deodorizer but not as bad.
We ate at the bar and had a nice experience. The staff is friendly and the beach location is perfect. There are life guards on the beach in front of the hotel.
