We had an issue with our reservation prior to arrival as when I called to confirm my reservation and discuss adding tours to my reservation; I was told my reservation was for a different date. After talking to 3 people I finally spoke with the manager and he was able to locate the reservation, what a relief! Still I do not know why the others could not find it. When we arrived at the hotel our room was not ready, so they stored our luggage while we went to have lunch. Once we checked in and got to our room, we found it nice and the people at the desk were very nice. We were upgraded for a fee that included tours and I was happy with the quality of the two tours we were able to attend.
Towels are thin but clean as was the room. No blow dryer, so I had to go to dinner with wet hair. If you want a basic room for a decent price this is the place.
At check-out time the hotel stored our bags until our ship left, because it departed at 4:30 and check out time is 11. I was glad because I saw people dragging luggage around town and I sure did not want to that. All in all it was a fun trip and we would stay here again as long as they keep the price down.
