There are very big differences between the room types and the locations. We had booked a garden view room 2 double beds and when we got to the room, the air wasn't working (it was 85 & blowing hot air). Maintenance guy said to give it time. Problem is: I don't sweat. Literally, I don't sweat. Sounds like a good thing but it's not. Sweat is how your body cools itself off, so I was cooking. I went down to the front desk to get a fan. But there was Shar, and she said that was nonsense! She moved us to another room in another wing pronto. Difference between rooms: 1st was a garden view with a tub/shower, 2nd was a pool view with a shower only but also a room large enough for a sofa plus the 2 dbl beds. AND THE AIR WORKED! The grounds are very pretty. The turn into the hotel from the airport is very easy to miss.
The reasons I only gave this property a 3 are: parking SUCKS! hot water isn't that hot, and what they call a laundry facility at a property this size is a joke (1 washer/1 dryer for the entire place). While the beach is very close, and has a nice protected area for swimming & snorkling, it's not actually part of the hotel - it's a state or city park but the hotel claims it as part of their amenities. Also, they give you a ticket for a continental breakfast - it consists of a danish, a pineapple spear, and a piece of mango. But they will give you eggs and bacon for $7 more per person... Mattresses aren't very good either.
Bottom line, I think we'll look for a condo the next time.
