“we were royally treated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Service: the service was FANTASTIC when we were there. they switched us to a bigger room when they realized that we had 3 people. they made sure we had everything we needed. everyday when we came back to the hotel, we had complimentary bottles of waters, little card that says what the whether is like the next day.
ROOM: the hotel is VERY chic, the rooms are SUPER clean, not carpeted, microwave, fridge, dishwashers, toasters, utensils are all available. VERY nice bathroom. the hot water sometimes will run out, and come back in a minute or two when you are taking a shower, it can become an issue for some people but it never bothered me.
Location: the zen garden overlooks water, it can be alittle hard to find as the GPS will not lead you to the right road, you have to go north, and right before crossing the bridge, there is a side road that goes under the bridge and that will lead you to the hotel. the hotel is not connected to a beach, but it's close. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend

After a day of travel with a baby it's not fun to arrive at a hotel at 4pm and find your room not available. It took until 5pm (checkin is at 4pm) to get it.

Our room's hot water wasn't working. When I called the front desk at 8:45pm I was told there was no one on duty who could look until 9:30 the following day. Wow. Is this a hotel?

There is frequently no one at the front desk, the "manager" isn't here over the weekend, and generally no one seems to know what the heck is going on.

Oh and we're paying about $1k/night for this (due to the season). Awesome.

We had a one bedroom suite. It was very spacious, modern, and clean. A hidden Gem. The staff was very accommodating, however, At night they are short staffed and will ask you to come down stairs to retrieve extra towels or blankets, if needed. Centrally located and we would definitely stay there again except we will be moving to The area next month. We would recommend Quarzo to friends and family.

Rooms are very modern, our boat has a bigger bathroom. Some rooms open onto or face the water and are quiet, others face a highway overpass. Our stay was fine, but competition is fierce in this area. Each room has its own HVAC (air conditioner/heater); ours was very noisy. The modern, Asian influenced lobby and modern rooms were nicely done.

Room Tip: See if you can get a quiet air conditioner and face the water.

We stayed one week in a beautiful,specious suite. Very modern with full kitchen,stainless steel appliances. Very clean,private and very friendly,pleasant and helpful staff. Excellent service.
Little bit noisy. The hotel does not have access to the beach. You have to walk to the public beach(not too far,about 5 minutes)but still inconvenient.
Also you have to walk to the grocery store,restaurants and other amenities. It would be better if we had a car. Overall it was a great experience and I will recommend this hotel to others.

I have read some of the reviews Quarzo Hotel has an it amazes me on how different there are – some are excellent reviews and some are horrible – how can it be?....is there a kind of discrimination on the way they treat their clients – maybe the mood they are on that day?
I believe that treatment should be the same to all costumers…that means the best assistance you can give…that is why you are there.
We wanted to share our experience at the Quarzo Hotel – not good!
We went to spend just one night – last Saturday Oct. 5th as the wedding of our niece was at the One Hotel…across the street from Quarzo, and we found out it was very convenient to stay at Quarzo as One Hotel is more expensive (however it is a beautiful hotel and has all kind of amenities which Quarzo does not have)
Hotel Quarzo is very nice looking, decoration has good taste and rooms are spacious…up to here everything is good.
The room we were given was at the 2nd floor – room # 207; elevator was just there coming out of the room, so it was very noisy…you could hear everyone that took the elevator, that means that sound insulation is not good. View from the room ?....no view…it was the parking lot.
Until this point we did not pay too much attention as it was going to be for one night only. We got back to the room at 3:00 am aprox. – the key did not work so we had to get it reset at the Lobby.
When I went to the bathroom and flushed it the water came out from the toilet and flooded the bathroom and hallway from room….had to call the night clerk to flush it and bring towels to dry all the water on the floor.
On top of that the air condition did not work at all, we suffered the heat and the noise (very noisy A/C) the few hours we stayed there.
In the morning the toilet was used again thinking it was going to work but once again it was blocked and did not flush …this time there was waste floating in the toilet and bad smell…all this situation is unacceptable in a “4 Star Hotel”.
We do not consider we received a good service overall.
We are sure that Management from Quarzo Hotel knows which rooms have issues – why would they give rooms to costumers with plumbing and A/C bad conditions?....costumers should not suffer this bad administration problems ….we paid for a good attention from a 4 Hotel and we did not received it…it was surely a bad experience.

I stayed for a 4 day weekend. The pool unfortunately was out of service the whole time. The good thing was that the beach was only a walking distance away, but the convenience of having a pool right in the back was a negative.

Otherwise, the hotel room was gorgeous and clean. We stayed in the top floor suite, with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It was clean and modern and I fell in love with it.

The zen atmosphere was a plus too, scented hallways and peaceful music playing through the whole hotel.

Service was kind and helpful. And although we were a boastful group, they never treated us any different.

Room Tip: No restaurant to judge on.
