    Room was small. You charge for everything. I could’ve stayed in the same room $200.00 a night. Had to beg for coffee and they gave me 2 cups. For the amount I paid for the room I should’ve been very happy.

    My family with two young kids arrived on a flight at noon. We were told to wait in the lobby bar or take the free shuttle to the beach club (it was raining and stormy) to wait until 4 o clock - the hotels official check in time and we would be called if the room is ready earlier. Hours passed, we checked periodically and were told it will take a bit longer and to continue waiting. No voucher for the bar, no coffee just “please wait”. Alas, we checked in at 4:40pm after waiting almost five hours in the lobby bar. The staff was not really apologetic but technical mentioning a large wedding party had checked out. Not once in 5 hours did the staff come to see if we needed anything with our tired kids. Secondly, the hostesses (not the waiters - they were all lovely and kind) at the main restaurant were unfriendly, bored looking, not smiling and just seemed annoyed. On Christmas Day, our final day, we were greeted by another grumpy hostess telling us to wait 25 minutes for a table as they were busy with reservations of non hotel guests a holiday morning, I told her that we are paying hotel guests, checking out soon ultimately she led us to a couch in the lounge area in front of the breakfast room to eat. Lastly, paying a full daily resort fee for an unheated outdoor pool mediocre beach club in the middle of winter is irritating. Pluses: well equipped gym, the concierge staff and waiters of the restaurant
