This was my second stay at the Wave. Last time was 4 years ago. Decided to re-book based on my last experience but we weren't there on a Friday or Saturday night last time. We were on the 7th floor along side the parking garage. The noise was unbearable! You could hear word for word conversations from the street at 4am. The other nights were fine. The location is great. Close to the bus, the beach , shopping and restaurants. The staff is super helpful. One of the front desk members even loaned us his ipod charger as we forgot our adapter.
We reported that one of the bed lamps didn't work but it was never fixed. The bath ran continuously the whole time. You just couldn't turn it off! We kept the door closed so it didn't bother us too much. What a waste of water!
The free wi-fi doesn't work too well. Kept dropping out and couldn't make a voice skype call.
When I booked 4 months ago I noticed the reviews about the lifts being replaced. I figured it would be complete by the time we got here. But no.... What a nightmare. We were allowed to use the staff lift but it has a seperate set of buttons. So everybody requested both lifts and got into the first to arrive. But the other lift would then go to the requested floor anyway. So don't be in a hurry!
I would still consider staying at the hotel again. The beds are comfortable and the rooms spacious.It's a great location and the staff are wonderful. I'd think about which nights to stay, NOT Friday or Saturday.
