This was an ok hotel. It was more expensive than the Best Western Vista Villas and not as fun. The staff were all very nice and friendly. Professional, but I think they knew though that the room smelled like bug spray. Lots of it. And the room was swarmed with ants, which I got to go away using one of my anti ant tricks.....)
And I was given a room without a view, even though it was low season and there was an upgrade available. I asked for the upgrade, and the reception person forgot to do it or must have thought I was not upscale enough to pay the difference (I always pay for upgrades, but like it when they are free in the off season too......), and thus I never got the upgrade. I didn't mention it again though because I am not a complainer.
Aside from the bug spray smell of the room, there was no hot water either. Also, I was told there was a minibar, but I didn't see one in the room. Maybe it was off season again?
I went to check on spa services and several times in several days, the person who was supposed to be working at the desk was not there, nor did they follow up with me even though they knew I wanted a massage! Or at least I think they knew........
All in all, this hotel was only so so and not worth the price. If it
