I recently stayed at the AC for four nights. I didn't have any trouble at check-in. I was the only person at check-in, and within minutes I had two keys and was heading to my room. I had asked for a room on a higher floor when booking the reservation (after reading the other trip advisor reviews), and it was a very good suggestion. I had booked a junior suite, and the room was very nice and modern. Plenty of closet space for hanging items as well as lots of shelves for clothing. We had a living room with a chair, couch, and desk in addition to a flat screen TV and a complimentary mini bar. Our balcony overlooked Santa Catalina park. The bedroom also had a flat screen TV as well as a balcony which overlooked the port. The bathroom was marble and large with two sinks and all the necessities. The room itself had hardwood floors, and had a modern feel to it.
Breakfast was good. They had scrambled eggs, pastries, muffins, yogurts, fresh fruits, coffee and tea. It was typical breakfast food which you find in Europe. The maid came by every day to clean the room, and it always looked great.
The pool is on the 25th floor, and a bit hard to find. The elevator ends at the 23rd floor, and you have to walk up two flights of stairs. I didn't ask for a towel for the pool; I just brought one from my room and then asked the maid for an extra one which wasn't a problem. I didn't stay at the pool for very long because there were only perhaps ten chairs and they were all taken. Instead, we went to Cantaras beach, which is quick walk. The beach is beautiful and there are lots of nice beachfront restaurants to choose from to eat around there.
We happened to be staying at the hotel during Carnival, and since all the festivities were right across the street, we had a great view of the parade and fireworks from our room, which was fun.
Overall, I think the hotel was a great find! It's close to the beach, the views are spectacular, and we had an enjoyable stay!
