2/10 Poor

They rooms were clean but uncomfortable. Not enough towels. The food choices were very limited and food was not good. The pool and the beach were good. I was very disappointed with this place. Not going back.

2/10 Poor

The food was TERRIBLE my family couldn’t even swallow the pasta. How can a simple spaghetti go wrong? Even the salads tasted bad. My husband had to spit his fish on his napkin. We literally starved on lunch and dinner. Breakfast was ok. The room wasn’t cleaned during the second day. For $170 the night I felt like my money went straight to the trash. I honestly regret my stay in this hotel. We’ve been twice before (when it used to be sheraton) and we had the time of our lives. I do have to say the staff was very kind and friendly. The pools are amazing. But room and food were 0/10.

2/10 Poor

They don’t have enough pool&beach chairs and when we found two without any towels we decided to take it for us but then 30 minutes later a woman claimed the chair belong to her and so she sat on my legs and I called the staff and they decided to move my husband and I to another location without reprimanding her behavior. The food was not a lot of options to choose from and the rice and meets were cold. The bedroom was outdated; the tv was so old you cannot even see clearly the picture; the furniture was old and broken without handles to open the drawers and the nightstands only had one lamp instead of two;there was a roach in the bathroom…. The two door keys didn’t work and put us in another inconvenience… It’s not worth the money to stay at this property . It’s a low class hotel.

6/10 Good

I will never go back and I don’t recommend it
We were given a room in front of the garbage deposit. I rejected it and then the put us in a room in front of the parking and a smelly stream and we were never able to seat in the balcony.I don’t recommend this place because the facilities were not clean . The bathroom had a broken shower curtain. I am a disabled person and it was very difficult for us to shower. Toilet was defective and dirty.
