While this is a nice resort in a great location that I have rated very good, there are a few things I expected based on the ratings here that did not materialize. First, it is not readily obvious from any site that these accomodations are not right on the beach. There are a couple of buildings, a restaurant and a parking garage between the hotel rooms and the beach. There is no beach view below about the 8th floor. We paid for an upgrade when we arrived based on this discovery. Second, I would expect pristine cleanliness when you're paying $300+ per night for a room and as you can see from the photos, the shower grout had visible mildew. There are few other things that indicate a level of carelessness in a hotel property to me than mildew. It's easy to eradicate and is so visible! Lastly, I would expect the furniture to be well maintained. As you can see it's needing some attention.
The pros -- exceptional service from the moment you drive on the property, beautiful beach and pool area and great location.
