We stayed there on a Friday night, we reserved a "non-smoking" Jacuzzi suite. It was adjacent to the main lobby, I was concerned about the music they play for the salsa activity, but I am happy to say, I didn't hear any music in my room, the main lobby was filled with music but even though I was close to the lobby, I didn't hear anything.
My main problem came from the smoke smell in the smoke free room. I complained to the front desk, they quickly gave me a temp card for another smoke free room to see how that was. That room was even worse, they said those were the only two available. The hotel has multiple signs saying "this is a smoke-free facility" but they also have multiple cigarette canisters that are pretty much full. They don't care if any of their patrons smoke regardless of the posted signs. Its sad too, because I can tell they have recently painted, newer furniture, new tile, but now all that work is wasted because they don't enforce their policies.
The Jacuzzi tub was really weak, didn't really have high pressure, and the fireplace was a light with something rolling in the back of the fake wood. Don't expect much for the added cost of the room.
The breakfast was good, underdone eggs, but other than that, very tasty.
All in all, not a bad stay, but if you are a nonsmoker, you may want to consider staying somewhere else, even your smoke free room, may have a strong smoke smell.
