I was the this hotel for 2 nights. My first impression when walking in was that it was very nice, sheik and updated. However upon futher inspection I was wrong. I stayed in the East Villa second floor. In between buildings there were terrible, musty, chemical type smells. My room's floor was dirty, the lights needed cleaning and there was dust all on the walls. Every part of this hotel is dirty, floors, walls, etc. I think they have the security of the cruise ship business and therefore neglected regular upkeep.
I had a bad experience at the hotel pool bar. I went for lunch and for 1 person it took over 1.5 hours. I had to find a waitress to help me. The chips were stale. The waitress never came back. They did not have cream for my coffee. I had to get up and get the waitress for a refill on my water. Other tables who sat after me had quicker service.
I was there for a conference and the conference area was dingy and cheap. All of the furniture was dirty and written on with pen. The last day I went into the bathroom by the lobby to change before going to the airport. The bathroom was dirty, the chairs in the sitting area were stained. I was going to sit to go through my bag and put gym shoes one but opted not to.
This hotel looks nice, but is really poorly taken care of and dirty. I would not stay here again.
The location is not the greatest unless you want to be by the port or airport. It is not walking distance from anywhere. We had to take a cab everywhere to go out to eat or enjoy the night.
