Disappointment
I rarely write reviews. I did not enjoy my stay at this hotel. The pictures make this look like a luxury hotel but it is not. The hotel is old and not very well maintained. The towels are very cheap and scruffy as are the bed sheets. There is a lot of noise from the live music in the lobby every night. To make matters worse, after a noisy evening I would get a knock on my door every morning to count the mini bar (EVERY MORNING!) When i yelled from bed to please come back later (in spanish) they opened the door on their own. The WIFI was terrible. I could barely stay connected to whatsapp. Nevermind trying to watch a streaming app on your iPad. The lobby and pool are ok. Not worth the money.

Bad
Ic04 65 Not happy and not enough space here to tell all. Some staff seemed very happy but others seemed unfriendly. Upon entering my room I realized there was absolutely nothing of convenience in the room. No pen, paper, Minnie bar, coffee maker and it needed touching up with paint. Minutes later someone arrived to open my safe (I'm not sure why it was locked) 30 minutes later I'm standing there waiting while the man tries to still open my safe. He leaves and comes back and tries again and eventually tells me I must move rooms. Ok so I pack and move to a second room which takes 45m to get Someone to tell me what room. In the second room my safe does not work again. I call front desk and they send another person to look at this safe and he proceeds to work on it for 30m changing batteries and such. At this point I'm not happy and tell him that I have been here 2 hours and In 2 rooms and would like to talk to a supervisor. He says one second, leaves and then returns 15m later with yet another man who proceeds to dismantle and remove the safe ... At this point I am angry so I get a drink at the bar which there is no bartender. I wait 20m and one shows. Good drink! I return and the workmen are leaving. Safe works fine for 1 hour and at dinner the safe stops working again! I just hide my things and go to dinner. I was miserable here after this ... There are nicer hotels all over for just a few $ more. Stay at intercontinental or Hilton!
