Pros: some nice (overworked)staff
cons: where to begin
1. Drinks suck. Cheap undrinkable wine at dinner. Red and white. None of the sodas taste right especially the mixers. Tonic water is nasty. They try to make you pay for top shelf and bottles of wine. Screw that.
2. Walls are paper thin. Impossible to rest. Noisy. Ghetto atmosphere. How bout a non-smoking building. Rooms are barely okay and cleaned late in day and difficult to get towels.
3. Need reservation for all a la carte dining. That means you need to know what and when you want to eat when you arrive. NOT relaxing. And food is FAIR at best. Buffets are disgusting.
4. Activities are a joke and far from the center of hotel. Motor boats and ghetto drinking cruises pollute the beach with noise - ALL DAY. No rest. Ever.
5. Checking in takes forever and they screwed up my request.
