From the outside, Nativo looks like it would be a nice place to stay. After a 9 hour drive, my husband really needed to soak in the hot tub/spa & I was looking forward to hanging out by the pool. Unfortunately, the hot tub was broken & the pool was taken over by a large group on non-guests who were having a party around the pool. The gate to the parking lot was open, a table with food was set up, and over 40 people were having a party. It appeared to be the community pool, not just one for hotel guests. When we tried to express our dissatisfaction with the front desk, we were met with shoulder shrugs & "I know - sorry." There was no effort on their part to do anything about the situation. Expedia tried to advocate for us, but received the same response - management is unavailable & there is nothing that can be done. Management could not be reached in person or by phone. Luckily, we booked thru Expedia & they were very helpful.
That night, there was a fist-fight in front of the hotel between 2 men & a woman. One car speed out of the parking lot nearly hitting another car. When we spoke to security, he said he had gotten several reports of the fight, but missed it. It was unnerving to say the least.
The elevator is terribly slow & unless you are just looking for a bed to sleep in, this place really isn't worth it.
