One of the best hotels I’ve stayed at in terms of customer service. Because of my experience, I will be staying again. The staff was excellent, especially Noah, who went above and beyond and was so sweet. I traveled with someone that needed ADA accommodations and is wheelchair bound. The hotel has ramps, elevators, easy access to the beach. My only complaint is the height of the custom beds. They are beautiful but for those of shorter stature and those with ADA needs it was tricky. There was, however, a step stool provided in the room that assisted with getting into the bed. The amenities are great and room service was quick. I requested extra towels and toilet paper and they were at my door within minutes. The concierge service was a convenient and easy and met with a speedy response. The pool was clean, well stocked with towels and clean seating. The patio area was beautiful at night, well lit with fire pits and torches. We were lucky to be there on a Friday night and watched a “flame thrower” show with an amazing entertainer. We watched the show from the swimming pool. It’s in a great location with tons of dining options within short walking distance. The hotel itself offered complimentary drinks and cookies and apples in the Caribbean room. The hotel provided beach chairs and umbrellas for beach use. Pacific beach was amazing. There was a ramp which aloud our ADA guest to access the beach. Overall, a 10 out of 10 for me!

This review is of mixed reviews for sure. Overall the front desk staff and bar/pool staff were absolutely amazing and friendly. But we did experience a very unpleasant security guard that was there at night. My wife had forgotten to put her mask on and as soon as we walked through the front door, he yelled, yes yelled, at her to put her mask on. Not a simple, “ma’am please put a mask on...” which would have been a much better approach. This elderly gentleman has no business working in a hotel like this. There was no custom service skills whatsoever. I also watched him yell at other family members to put a mask on. He even followed us to our room and knocked saying there was a noise complaint. This was a lie because we had just gotten to our room. The only other issue we had with the hotel was our AC was broken from the start and it was very humid in our room. They worked on it for a couple hours, which we were not able to enjoy our room during this time. They ultimately could not fix it but offered to upgrade our room, but the following day. Not until 3pm. So we had to deal with the hot room for the remainder of our first day and most of our second day. I appreciated them upgrading our room but feel more could have been done, especially when you’re paying $1100 to stay there for 2 nights. Like I said, rest of the staff was great, pool was great, and overall we enjoyed ourselves. But that security guard and the broken ac really brought down the rest of the trip.
