Very dirty hotel beach crowded with smokers, non-working elevators/Ice machines, valet lost our car key and accused us of lying about it, TVs never worked despite complaints, smokers in the hallway, etc
The hotel has a lot going on and a lot to offer. The only problem is getting up to your room. The elevators were not working properly and it was a bit of a wait to come and go. The pool area is nice and you can walk right out on the beach. The bar at the pool was nice and the staff were also in good spirits as they made and poured spirits.
