Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Room wasn’t ready at check in time, ignored by the the bartender, first room’s door was stuck requiring multiple trips from and to lobby.I had my younger siblings with me, we wanted to go in the pool, 30 min go by, still no luggage. I have to personally go out to ask the valet, they have no idea what’s happening, my stuff is in some room out there. Internet is not working, I call internet support. While I am on the phone I see the toilet flooding. I was then offered a different room without and I am blown back by the terrible smell of smoke or something of that sort throughout the whole room, back to the lobby I go. Front desk offered to show me a higher priced room (Luna suite), layout is completely different from my original room (Masters suite). They only waived my valet fee, resort fee, and late check out when none of these fees were associated with the actual room type. I believe the manager tried to accommodate me

I called this hotel and asked questions before booking bevahe I was traveling with children. The girl at the front desk advised me that the solstice suite I was booking had two beds and a separate room for the king bed. I asked about a bathtub for the children she said there was a bathtub and that’s this suite was the only one like this, so I went ahead and booked it for the comfort of the kids. She also said if I wanted to go to the pool I would need to buy a day pass the the pool separately for $15 a day per person so there are 4 of us that’s $60 a day extra to guarantee the kids could go to the pool. And she told me I could only buy this on the website resortpass.com before my stay not at check in. So I do all that I even upgrade the room So the kids are comfortable. I get to the hotel the room only has ONE bed. And no bath tub !! And the pool is empty. I call the front desk and they tell me there is no other room they can move me to. I was totally scammed, there was no separate bed no separate room no bath tub. There was also no housekeeping unless you stayed 5 days. They said I would need to call for what I needed. I had a small child in diapers in the room the dirty diapers could not be kept in the room. I called housekeeping 5 times in one day for towels and trash pickup and a comforter so the kids could sleep on the floor and the other in the stroller! And no ones came until late at night for the trash and they brought towels. But guess what no sheets

They claimed to give us a FREE room upgrade for our honeymoon,and then charged us for the room upgrade at the end of our visit. And the supposedly room upgrade wasn't any different it was still the standard room. Will never go back to the solamar again
