I didn’t like that we had to pay to get into a club which is a part of the hotel property and that the shuttle shuts down at 3

The location is ideal. Close to airport, restaurants, shopping mall, etc. Didn't like that the restaurants on site closed at 8:30pm. Had to leave site to find evening entertainment.

They have club music blasting from the adult only pool area from friday-Sunday and it’s SO loud you cannot escape it no matter how far away your room is from it. We had a dog barking next door and instead of moving them we had to move. The patio doors are almost impossible to open/close. Our water view room had a huge bushy palm tree right in the middle of the view. The balconies are semi open to each other so you hear lots of younger black people hollering and using really filthy language. Housekeeping has to be requested daily if you want more towels or sheets changed or you go to the front desk for them. If you miss the time you wait until the next day. Bathroom looks nice on the surface but look like they’ve never been cleaned in the corners. It is conveniently located but overall disappointing.

I had an ocean view room and it didn’t disappoint it was worth the extra money as the view of the bay was a lot nicer than the parking lot view. The room was clean and the cafe in the lobby was convenient and had a lot of options. The hotel itself is really nice the only thing I would advise people is it’s definitely not a quiet hotel because there’s a restaurant/pool venue place attached to it and they had events going on all weekend. Music didn’t stop until about 2 am. It’s definitely a fancy party hotel. I would recommend it just not to those looking for a quiet relaxing place.
