    Overpriced Property with Outrageous Resort Fee

    I would rate this hotel two stars- one for the staff and one for the location. Upon walking into the lobby there was an overpowering smell of fish cooking, more so than any seafood restaurant I’ve been to. They need to address the ventilation in their kitchen. The hotel lobby was extremely busy due to two simultaneous weddings on the property and wedding guests congregating in the lobby. I find that unreasonable given the current COVID situation. After checking in and taking our bags to the room (check in is at 4pm) we made our way down to the beach where they had already taken down the cabanas, etc that the $50 resort fee is supposed to include. The property is under remodel, which is not noted on the property page when we booked it and it certainly wasn’t reflected in the price they’re charging for rooms. The halls smelled like a cheap apartment (musty and paint smell) and the trim work reflected that as well. Sloppy paint work left paint on the elevator buttons, floors, etc, and the painted over banged up door frames only added to the cheap apartment feel. The room and bathroom was designed well, however, the shower water pressure was at most 30% of what it should be. The lock on the room door didn’t work & the door handle to the balcony door was so loose it was nearly falling off and that lock didn’t work either. Our booking came w/ two drink vouchers. I had to ask for them 4 times and didn’t get them until midnight, well after we could have used them.

    Caution: Under construction

    Where do I start? The hotel is nothing like the photos. I booked the hotel based on reviews and for a girls' trip with a plan that we would just stay at the hotel for food, drinks, beach, etc. Well, it appears those reviews were removed before we arrived as the hotel is being renovated. This was NOT advertised anywhere. Our room was a new room and it was comfortable and cute but we were woken up at 7:30 am on Friday morning to construction noises and when we called to complain the front desk acted shocked and denied it was happening. After hours of complaining, we were finally heard and the hotel personnel tried to make it up to us. The pool was closed for all but 1/2 day of our stay and everything needs to be replaced. There was only restaurant open and likely only maybe 2 floors available. With that being said, after we were "heard", the staff did try to make it up to us. The issue is that the hotel as is was not what we bargained for and there was nothing advertising that it was under construction. However, I am hopeful that once it is complete, it will actually be like the photos.
