We stayed here one night pre-cruise in April. We were really looking forward to enjoying the pool and beach, but unfortunately arrived much later than expected. The hotel was well marked and easy to find, and in a great location, with plenty of restaurants and shops close by. Check in was very easy. I can see why some reviewers might find the desk attendant somewhat standoffish, but he was far from rude, and I would attribute his quietness to more of a language barrier than rudeness. Our room was located by the pool, which had plenty of tables, chairs and loungers around it in the courtyard area. I was slightly leery that the noise from people gathered here would bother us, but it did not.I am a light sleeper, and had no noise issues here at all. It is a very pretty area, but I will say that it was full of smokers at all times. The windows to our room were open, and a nice breeze blowing through. We closed them due to the smoke and worries about the noise, but with the ceiling fan, it was quite comfortable with them open. Air conditioning worked fine. The room was spotlessly clean, and huge. Linens seemed new and high quality. The towels were the thickest and best quality I've ever seen in a hotel. Everything also smelled very nice, like a good fabric softener is used. Kitchen was well stocked and nice for a cinnamon roll and cereal we had picked up at Walgreens 2 blocks away. Water pressure in the shower was great. Mattresses were very comfortable and seemed new. I can't say the décor stood out at me at all. We were perfectly happy with the room. The pool looked beautiful and clean. I did notice there was trash left on a table that was there when we arrived, and still there the next morning when we checked out. Guests should pick up after themselves, and not expect the one lone person working the desk to have to clean up after them. There are several restaurants within the block or two that we walked, as well as the Walgreens, and the beach was also a three minute nice walk. There is a huge Wings store, and Citibike rental in that block also. Due to our late arrival, we decided to give up a little ship time and spend an hour in the morning exploring the beach and area a little. It really is a very nice touristy area. Parking in the hotel lot is a little tight, so we just parked the car and enjoyed the many things available near the hotel. We are very easy to please people, and agree with the adage that if you want a four star hotel, then pay four star prices. We were extremely happy with our stay here, and are anticipating staying here again in August, hopefully with more time to enjoy all it has to offer.
