There are many things I really liked about the El Cortez Cabana Suites, and I would certainly stay in them again. We had a junior suite, which was big, although probably the same size as a normal hotel room but the bathroom was quite a bit larger than a normal hotel room. The staff at the customer service desk both in the main hotel and the suites were very helpful and friendly. The property was clean and seemed well maintained. And the best part for us was that it's completely non-smoking! That being said there were a few nitpicky things: the neon from the lights on the side of the hotel could be seen in our room and I found it distracting to try and fall asleep. There are no curtains on the windows, just plastic white shutters so it certainly let's a lot of light in when the sun comes up and the neon lights can be seen all night. The doors are heavy and they do slam loudly - perhaps the hotel should consider posting signs about closing them slowly or helping them close - it does make a difference. There is 24 hour security, which is nice, but if you are having trouble getting into the main door of the suites (which happened often to us) they will not help you get in. The biggest issue I had was the lack of housekeeping for our room. The first day was fine, the second day they came and only did the bathroom, the third day no one came at all. This was frustrating as we had a lot of garbage that didn't get emptied and had run out of kleenex and came close to having no toilet paper. And, we could not figure out how to work the air conditioner. It seemed really easy but the fan would only run as per the air cycle so the room tended to heat up quickly. If you just wanted the fan to run all the time you had to turn off the air. It would be nice if the two could be combined. But, again, that's nitpicky.
The room is BRIGHT green and it feels a little like being in Wonderland. The bathroom is nice and modern, although the vanity doesn't reach to the wall and I often dropped things down the side and had to get my husband to come and reach them out.
The beds are on the harder side and the pillows on the flimsy side, but the sleep was fairly decent (once we figured out how to block some of the light from entering the room). The best part is that, aside from the doors, it is SO quiet. We really didn't know others were staying there unless we saw them in the lobby or elevator.
I enjoyed my stay here. The area is totally safe to walk in - we never had any trouble, even at 3 a.m. There are some perks to staying at the hotel with free play, coupons for the restaurants, match play, etc. We would definitely not hesitate in staying here again.
Note: there is no pool. But, there is a free shuttle that will take you upon checkout to the airport!
