I fell for the "top secret" room, guaranteed by Travelocity to be "at least a 3 star hotel". This was NOT a 3 star hotel.
Our first room was filthy with dirt, hair, lint, and other various grime along all of the walls and in the bathroom. I requested a new room and they gave my husband and I a room which was cleaner, but the shower faucet didn't shut off completely.
The noise from the street was obnoxious at all hours, day and night. The elevator is outright dangerous, not to mention the slowest elevator I've ever seen. The elevator door shuts on several people a day.
There is an additional "resort fee" of $10/day plus tax which is required. It includes a basic continental breakfast of cold cereal, pastries (some with SPAM), coffee, milk, and pineapple juice.
Their business center consisted of two computers in the lobby with a broken printer.
We requested extra towels each day, which we never received.
Their beach towels are shower towels and "complementary beach equipment" (including snorkeling) is piled in a bin by the front door each day without being sanitized.
Needless to say, we were less than impressed and will not be returning.
