This was a sad experience, a once beautiful hotel rotting from lack of care. Dirty bedding and tubs. This used to be a resort but the owners are not keeping up with basic repairs. In the daylight you can see stucco chipping away. Tile in the pool is sharp where you can sit or lean, quite hazardous actually. Tvs don’t work. Staff doesn’t care. Only the front desk saves you from a hellish experience, they were super nice and apologetic.
The pictures posted by Peninsula Island are either photoshopped or very old! They look wonderful but in reality, the place is not! The overall appearance of the outside of the resort is worn out. Chipping paint and stucco on the outside walls, gravel luggage drop off area, poorly replaced pool tiles, poorly painted hallways, dingy hallways, and old beach lounge chairs are just a few negatives. Regular maintenance and a little TLC could shape this place up nicely! Our room was recently remodeled and was adequate. I think because of the humidity on the island, everything felt damp, including the bed. The air in the room worked perfectly. The food in the restaurant was good and the staff in the restaurant were super friendly.
When I go on a vacation and spend a lot of $$, I want the whole package. I want my surroundings in all areas to be and look clean and fresh. Unfortunately, this place missed the mark.
**The pic of the pool from my room looks great, and it was a nice pool, but some little tiles needed to be replaced properly. The swim up bar was nothing like I expected. Hire someone to paint a pretty mural on the wall to make it look appealing.
