Location is obviously everything, and in that regard this hotel is great. Right on the water, great pool and walkway to the beach. We would have loved this place but several things made our stay less than wonderful.
1. Housekeeping was on vacation too. There were dirty dishes and room service trays left in the hall for two days. (with fries spread across the floor...come on, you cleaned the rooms, how did you not decide this was worth it?)
2. The room smelled musty and moldy. (wet swimsuits will do that, so take it for what it is worth)
3. The neighbors. They decided to leave their little dog inside their room and for three days straight we endured the yap, yap, yapping of a dog left alone. We called the front desk after the first day of non-stop yapping but to no avail. Day two...yap, yap, yap. Day and night. We begged the front office to say/do something and maybe they did, but...you guessed it...yap, yap, yap. We asked if they could change our room but they said they were sold out and could not accommodate. (yap, yap, yap)
The good news here is that we spent more time at the beach because we couldn't stand the dog barking.
The bad news...I was on vacation and didn't want to deal with any of this.
