When we checked in we were put in to room 227 which was a mildew box in the back of the hotel with no opening of windows. Probably the worst room in the hotel for budget or discount travelers. They gave us a standard room overlooking the pool 2 days later, but I felt like my short vacation started off terribly. The staff were very sweet, but the hotel is old. The pool was nice.

This property ranks 5 star for location and staff are really nice and work hard. And the spa was nice and service amazing.But I can’t believe this hotel is still on Travelocity ranked well. Well let me start and stay it all started day one and went to room. There was no glass in half of window. Called and spoke to 3 employees suggesting that we broke, but the had no glass on floor outside window, I have pictures,but I’m offended and this dangerous.You have daily maid service daily. Since their was no broken class , that means someone picked it up and the hotel should have not put us in this room. First this should not be an all inclusive hotel, the food choices are disgusting and there are only a few, even menu options are disqusting all Pool all Taken over by kids This is 100% a hotel frequent by day pass folks So I called Travelocity and told employee about room and possibly moving. Due to bad cell service we got disconnected first time and rep said she would look at hotels to chAnge to and call me back . I never. lled bAck because I wanted to enjoy vacation and the sKt for rep was / hrs. Finally I took mAtters myself so I booked sat to Mon at Marriott and didn’t use line as there was no contact iinfo In summary this hotel is 2 star or less Hotel beach was soo dirty with trash The staff was niice that doesn’t change the overall I expect a callback and some type of comp for my xtra costs for hotel and ride to airport. Please respond ASAP.

This property is right on the beach and is all inclusive if you choose to pay for it. It's situated right in the heart of town which is considered the romantic zone, located near many bars, restaurants and shops. You can walk to everything!! The Malecon is very close and its a nice atmosphere at night. Definitely kid friendly. The rooms are on the small side but still very quaint and clean. The air conditioner worked wonderfully on those 90° days. I'd stay here again.
