We booked 2 rooms at this hotel due to the "stay and cruise" package. I loved the idea of parking and having a shuttle to and from the port. However, I wish I would have stayed somewhere else and just paid for parking.
The day of our arrival I called to confirm we had 2 rooms that joined. I was told it was confirmed, but 1 hour later when we arrived we were told it wasn't possible. After much arguing and waiting with 4 kids in the lobby for over 30 minutes, we got the rooms. We went in and one room hadn't been cleaned! We waited some more. Late that night the tolliet flooded! It was noisey all night. The shuttle to the cruise port is actually 2 vans, each carrying 6-9 people. We waited over an hour to get a ride. In hindsight, my husband should have dropped us off, came back to park and took a taxi back down to the port.
Honestly, it was one of the worst experiences we have had! I should have read through the reviews better. I just felt I should share, and save others the same experience.
