This was not the worst place we've ever stayed (unfortunately) but it's up there. The best aspect was the pool, though that had its minuses too. It was very nice, big, clean, and we had it pretty much to ourselves all day. However, plane and helicopter traffic overhead, and car traffic right next to the pool area ... not the best. As for the room, my husband's socks were black after wearing them to walk around (I kept flip-flops on at all times). The bottom sheets were so ill-fitting that they kept coming off the mattress (gross!) and there was absolutely nowhere to put your bags or hang anything. And maybe the MOST annoying aspect was the fact that the only lighting was an obnoxious overhead ceiling light. There were no lamps -- not even a bedside lamp by which to read at night! Good thing I brought my itty-bitty book light!!!! (By the way, we asked 2 times for a bedside lamp, but to no avail.) Lastly, we never did figure out where that second pool was located, and also though we were given directions by the girl at the front desk, we still never found the beach that is advertised!! The people were nice, but sorry -- never again.
