A sleepless and frustrating vacation

Pros: Good location
Cons: Staff responsiveness
A nearly sleepless vacation. Friday night from 11pm to 3:30am the guests directly above us stomped around all night, dragged their suitcases from one side of the room to the other (repeatedly), slammed doors and dropped large heavy items constantly on the floor (our ceiling). I contacted the hotel staff at least 5 times (at 30 to 60 minute intervals), and they assured me the guests would quiet down, and yet the relentless banging continued to 3am. I awoke Saturday morning to the banging starting over again. Saturday night played out just as Friday night, with the guests above offering little to no regard there were guests below them and made a calamity of loud noises from 11pm till 3am. And again they were up bright and early Sunday morning banging around. I did not contact the hotel staff Saturday night as ultimately nothing was done Friday night to help the situation. It’s a shame my first (and last) visit to the Baywatch Resort was so poor and sleepless, it’s a great location with nice and friendly staff. I left feeling frustrated and exhausted. I don’t have unreasonable expectations - I live in a busy neighborhood with lots of foot and street traffic, so I’m very much accustomed to city noise, but this was far beyond what is acceptable. Had I simply been able to get at least 6 hours of sleep each night (whenever), I would not be leaving a negative review.
