Perfect location on the beach. Condo was beautiful & had all amenities you could want. Used Uber to Johns Pass for fun evening. Visited Dali Museum & grounds to watch Bi Planes take off & land. So much to do in the area so this was a great home base.
I think this has gone downhill since we last stayed here. For starters, our suite was not ready until 5:10 p.m., when check-in time is 4:00. They seemed to do a quick clean because they were behind because both of our toilets had poop specks on the porcelain that were not cleaned. We had to buy our own toilet cleaner to make sure they were cleaned properly. Several dishes seemed dirty like they weren't washed properly or maybe the dishwasher did not work properly. My top sheet had a huge yellow stain that looked like a big urine spot. It had been washed, but really that type of thing should be discarded and not just washed and put on a guest's bed. The pillow under the case had stains on it as well.
The noise level is not great and we could hear the people above us moving around a lot. Also the bedroom by the walkway was very noisy and the drapes did not keep out the light from that walkway.
The cafe food was really terrible and overpriced. We had breakfast and it was not good. It all tasted like they bought the very cheapest products they could find. Frozen hashbrown patties, probably from Walmart, and the cheapest tasting bacon I have ever had. All overpriced and with poor preparation and poor service, with the gratuity automatically added, so the surly server wasn't even trying to provide good service.
We definitely will not be staying at this hotel again in the future.
