I'm still at the hotel as I write, leaving tomorrow. My impressions:
Very nice rooms, well decorated. Spacious, well lit bathroom with really nice shower and a jacuzzzi tub too. All around clean and well maintained rooms. WONDERFUL bed and pillows, good tv. Good wireless internet access. Good restaurant with excellent (fast) room service. Very nice staff too, good location in Punta Gorda.
No sundries shop, only a mini bar for cold drinks/snacks with exorbitant pricing.
Limited bell service; they'll help you on request but don't expect someone to be waiting to help you.
Here comes the deal breaker: On Fri-Sat nights from 7-11 they have a band playing on the rooftop and it's impossible to sleep. I am 2 floors below the roof and that band and it's bass sounds are just ridiculous here. I completely understand the desire to make money at their rooftop bar but if this is a hotel first and foremost then there should be NO compromising the reasonable comfort of it's guests. You can't watch TV, read, surf the net, sleep or enjoy ANYTHING peacefully with that noise reverberating in your room. I had to get up today at 5:30am to go fishing... couldn't get to sleep until after 11 last night because of the noise.
If you don't mind the band or if you arent going to be in the room until after 11 on Fri/Sat, the place is really nice. Otherwise, avoid at all costs. Stay during the week or anytime a band isn't playing. Staff is well aware of the issue but powerless to do anything about it
