This was our first stop on our honeymoon. Upon arriving, we carried our luggage down numerous steps before arriving at the reception area. We were greeted by Greg, who, without a doubt, made our stay more enjoyable. Very nice and always willing to help us with any questions. We then went down a few more steps, pass the rooms with the jacuzzis outside (no privacy whatsoever) and tucked in a corner was our room. It wasn't a big deal, but we were promised a room with a view which we weren't even close to getting. The room seemed to be very clean and tidy, but there were a few spots on the floor and walls that needed some remodeling. The view that the hotel does offer (around the pool area) is spectacular. The pool however is too small and gets crowded if 3 or more people are inside. There are not that many sun beds, which was not an issue until the last couple of days when new people came and began reserving sun beds and not showing up for hours. While laying out by the pool, you will encounter random strangers coming onto the hotel grounds to take "better" pictures of the view. This is the only hotel on the strip that does not have a gate, signs or security to stop anyone who isn't staying at the hotel. Because of this, we began feeling very uncomfortable. I would get asked over and over again if it was private property and if they could take some pictures. Another strike with this hotel was that the jetted bath tub that we received was very tiny. I am 115 5'5 and could not fit comfortably in the tub. When my husband filled it up and went to drain the water, the bathroom flooded from a drain in the middle of the bathroom and the water went into the bedroom. If you even tried to shower your couldn't do so without crouching or sitting because the shower head was too short. We spoke with others who were staying at the hotel who had strictly showers, and they said that it was very hard to maneuver inside. The chairs in our room were very flimsy and some were broken and seemed to have been glue back together. Upon checkout, we were asked to pay for the wine from the mini bad which we supposedly drank but never did. For the price that we paid for this hotel, we are highly displeased. The breakfast offered is very bland and is the same thing over and over again. We stayed for 5 days and by the 3rd, we already had enough and began to eat breakfast elsewhere. The only things this hotel has going for it is Greg, the location and view. Don't waste your money here.
