Check-in was easy and smooth, but they pre-assign your rooms and so you have no say in whether you face a back alley or the loud noisy club/pool. The city garbage trucks come every other day and are very loud and startling and the club on starting on Thursday nights and through the weekend goes until 2 or 3 am and earplugs cannot even tune it out. So staying here for other than partying and pleasure should not be considered. They have the air conditioning turned off when you get to your rooms. All signs and plaques are missing letters. Fortunately my husband has some muscle because we had issues opening and closing our door. We stayed there last year and it was not this bad. My parents were in the same room as last year and we pointed out maintenance things that needed to be fixed and they had yet to fix them a year later. Our shower has mold. The cleaning ladies leave the bare minimum with the towels and coffee so day after day we had to call the front desk for more towels. They have black out shades, but light come in through the sides so bad on the windows. They have a patio on the top floor for guests but it wasn't always open and the door would lock randomly. Also half way through our stay they decided to start maintenance on our pool and the closest pool was 2 blocks away. And don't let them fool you with the "free" breakfast that comes with the resort fee. It is hardly enough to eat nor edible. On a better note. They do offer bicycles you can use for free to ride along the beach. They have towels for you to bring to the beach and they have valet guys are quick and are good about helping you get a cab. All in all it's just not a place for the well traveled people.
