I am writing this review before I even checkout as I am so disgusted by this hotel. I booked it because of the great reviews. Well, I did not enjoy the hotel from the beginning. Arrived at 11pm after a 4 hour flight delay and no dinner only to find that their room service ends at 10pm and there are no minibars. The "state of the art" fitness center consists of 2 treadmills, an elliptical, a bike and a cybex machine with some free weights. Its teeny tiny.
The "beach" is some sand thrown on a 10 foot wide walkway by the docks.
From the morning after I arrived I felt like bugs were crawling on me every time I was in the room. Last night, I was laying in bed and suddenly saw a huge palmetto bug, ie cockroach - about 2 inches long, scrambling across my headboard. Security came in to kill it and confirmed it was a cockroach, they changed my linens but I then asked to be moved to a room that had been recently treated as security informed me they do treat regularly. Then I woke up this morning to a bed bug crawling on my arm. I am so disgusted right now. I still feel like things are crawling all over me. Think twice before you stay here.
