Stayed there for 5 nights in the first week of september, I´m form Cancun and i work in the hospitality industry sorry for my english by the way.. during the check in the bellboys did not help us out carrying our bags, then the fron desk agent charged us $700usd without our approval or any hotel speech. she didn´t was wearing her name badge and i think she was the most rude person in all the hotel. She does not have a clue in service. I asked 2 different recepniost for bathropes and i never got it. 1 day housekeeping didn't clean our room.
We tried a day out in balboa beach and the staff pick us up 25min. after the pick up time.??? i though that just happen in Mexico.
The breakfast is pricey for what they offer. there was not a goog variety. Over $20usd for a contiental brakfast?? And it was not tasty at all.
We had dinner 1 night in the hotel. And they have the same decor, they don't change it for dinner, Met like 3 waiters during my dinner, bad presentation of the table and food set up.!!! And paying almonst $200usd for dinner. Thay were in a rush and there was just like 4 tables occupied that night???
But the thing that it was most embarassed is that different times we asked people form the staff (front desk, recepcionist and 1 tall manager for different directions or information form the areas nearby and they don't have a clue were they live or a little effort to help you out on how you can get there, or finding any information for you...
I am not use to ask for complementary thing or compensations because i know if i travel it's because i have money and i will not be asking for things for free.But like i told you, i work in a hotel as well. And guests in my hotel if they would had that service they would be asking for any comp.
Poor service and management skills..It's a shame with all the hotel's budget.
