First off, we got a "family room" with bunk beds for our children. It was a great idea. Except for they are on the same level/side as the pool and music until 10:00 so they said. That doesn't matter much since the bar adjacent to the pool is open until 2 am with loud music.
Only one elevator works, and the night prior we found out it failed in between floors with people on board. The fire department had to be called to get them off. The other elevator is non operational.
That leaves the wet/moldy stairs to travel in between rooms if you don't want to wait 10 minutes to go up two floors on a potentially dangerous elevator. My wife and daughter slipped on the hazardous stair way injuring my wife's leg.
The rooms smell of mold and the floors are soggy and make you feel uncomfortable.
The "children's room" suite is no more than a closet with a bunk bed crammed in with a door that had apparently been ripped off at some point in time.
One lamp worked in our room. Which was okay since it helped us not focus on the paint bubbling off of the wall and ceiling in our "suit".
The location is prime and the staff did seem to be helpful.
However, you can't look past all of the flaws in a hotel we paid over $300.00 for.
I will never recommend this place and as it goes without saying will not ever stay here again.
Save yourself the heartache and money and stay elsewhere.
