We called the hotel directly to make reservations. Well, they are actually condominiums. We reserved for the 3rd week of August.

Considering that we are on a restrained budget we only booked for 5 nights, the manager gave us a price of 725$ for the 5 nights. We mailed our 200$ deposit and when we received the confirmation in the mail, it said 1125.00$!! We called back and said there is a mistake on our confirmation. A girl called Debbie, said "Oh, the manager made a mistake when he quoted you the price"! (How can a manager make a mistake about that??)

She then started to bargain with me on the phone as if I was at a flee market she says " how about 950$, I say no 725$, she says how about 900$, I say no 725$. She hangs up then calls me back 10 minutes later and says "865$". Anyways I tell her please just return my deposit. (Which I haven't received yet)

Very dishonest and unreliable, they ruined our vacation. Check your confirmations.

We stayed at this hotel a year ago and liked everything about the hotel so I decided to stay there again for memorial day weekend. When I called to book my stay I spoke to George (who informed me the hotel was under new management) he was very friendly and even discounted my stay since we stayed there before. So of course I agreed, well when we went to go to sleep at night, I found ANTS in my bed. I called the manger, who was George, he came up and said it was because of all the rain they received and all the hotels had ants and proceeded to change our sheets, and spray bug spray. I told him I didnt feel comfortable staying there and he said he was sorry but there was nothing he could do. He did not discount our stay and he said there was no other free hotel rooms to stay in. So after he left I went into the room and could not breath from the bug spray and we could not sleep in the room especially since I have a 1yr old. So the couch was not a pull out sofa, so my boyfriend and I squeezed on this little couch for the night. After checking out and going to another hotel, everyone acted as if nothing happened. I know if it was my hotel, I would have made sure to apologize repeatedly. I can guarantee I will not be staying there any longer!!!

We usually stay elsewhere for a bit more cheaper rates. This year we opted for the Mali Kai for its location ...and you can't beat it! We were within walking distance to almost anything. We only got back into our car for the dreadful ride home. Management was accommodating & room was clean. Will definitely be visiting again next year but must stay on the 5th floor for the views ..we stayed on the third floor and got gypped!

The hotel itself is fine, room was very nice however, the management was extremely rude and unprofessional and because of this would never stay there again

This hotel was excellent! The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. They were very sweet to my boyfriend and I an even deducted some money from our price because we were short on money and they were so nice!! The room we stayed in had a living room area, a small area with a table, and a kitchen.. then a separate bedroom with 2 beds. In the living room they had a full entertainment center and a TV with a DVD and VHS played in it! It was really great!! the pool was heated for the days when it was a little chillier (we went in june of 2003.. but it was sooo cold the week we went!). The elevator was a little scary when we went.. made a weird noise. But we loved it! only one hotel was in front of us then it was the beach.. so we could see the beach from the balcony.. I would DEF. recomment this hotel! we loved it!
