We checked into the reef for a spring break vacation with our kids. We got to the room and found it to be extremely small, outdated, unkempt, dirty, and overall just disgusting. As if that wasn't bad enough when we pulled the top covers back off the bed there were hairs all over the bed.
We called the front desk an were informed by the manager, Ed, that the housekeepers had left and if we wanted we could move to another room. We went to look at that room before moving and found hair on the bed, again, and dried blood on the sheets.
We opted to just cancel the rest of our stay and move to another hotel.
We spoke with two other managers, Andy, and another one upon checkout and the customer service was appalling. I have never experienced such a lack of care and concern and lackadaisical attitudes towards the guests. We have since moved to another property (the Sandy Beach Resort) and are thrilled with the new accommodations. The staff has been lovely, the rooms are immaculate and spacious, and we are extremely happy that we moved.
