Our expensive beachfront room was very spacious, with a separate bedroom. We were very pleased.....until we went to bed and realized our heads (Room #2) were about 10 feet from a rock band screaming just underneath our heads and over a couple of feet. Sleeping was impossible until after midnight. We complained and were moved to a little room in the very back of the hotel the next night, where we were treated to all the 2:00 a.m. noise of the bar closing plus very early garbage trucks in the morning.
The hotel has not returned our phone calls and has not credited out account, even for the difference in the cost of the rooms.
This was the worst hotel experience we have ever had after many years of extensive travel. We feel the presence of the noisy neighbor should have been disclosed.
