We had a great time here. However we likely would not return. The front desk people were absolutely wonderful. The views were fabulous. However we REALLY think that is why it is rated so hight. STAFF and VIEW. But that was it for us.
We rated the resort a 3 ... not because of the desk staff and view ... because again both were lovely. Also the price was reasonable, absolutely.
The reason for the 3 rating was because we were trying to be objective. For example, if this same hotel was elsewhere, without the view. The hotel experience itself.
So here it goes ...
The cleaning of our unit was okay but honestly not great. There were some spatter marks (old from previous renters) on a few walls. Now they were not immediately visible but they are if you do a proper eye - over. Also, there were food spatters (pretty visible) on the oven itself in between the counter and oven. I did have a hair on the pillow case I noticed first night before hopping into bed. Anywa, I KNOW it is difficult to keep standars up 1005 of the time when dealing with such a high turnover. Also, because the staff is working very hard. Maybe they should have a manager they hire to oversee or maybe once every couple of months do a deep / serious clean of each room?
My husband has a phobia of very high places ... I requested a floor somewhere in the midle before we arrived ... and if you can believe it, we were put into the PENTHOUSE!! Top floor of a 20 floor building. I must say that was not good at all. We could not enjoy the balcony whatsoever as a couple. This really did put a very serious damper on our trip.
We were told that we could not be moved because the unit we chose online was only available on the top floor. But, having read our request ... I would have thought someone would have contacted us to discuss? Oh well. We did have to adjust.
There was also one other thing that we both thought was a bit odd. The fitness room (which I wanted to use) was accessable only by walking through the parking garage (to the opposite side) and you would enter there. It was not accessible in the resort itself ... it was completely separate.
Hoestly I do not think it is very safe for a female to walk there by themselves (especially in the evening) and / or to stay there alone for any time at all. Because the room was most of the time empty. We just think that is very bad planning on the part of the builder.
Other than the above, we did again have some fun!
