Not at all what we expected from the number one rated hotel. Our room smelled musty covered with a strong soapy scent while our friend's room smelled of urine. Beds were old, window ac whose filter smelled as if it hadn't been cleaned in ages. Refrigerator had ice trays partially used. Generally shoddy. Our friend's room had plastic under the sheets. Checkout was no later than 11:00 AM allowing little time for activities. That said, we couldn't wait to get out. After staying at the Lido Beach Resort two building down several times, I don't understand how this receives a number one rating.
