Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   When we arrived a couple hours early to see the suite we reserved they said we can't see it because they're being cleaned but they said we could check in then come back at 2pm. So we checked in and suddenly out of nowhere she picks up 2 room keys directly under the counter without ever leaving and assigns us the room and says it's okay to go see it. The room was big but old and needed updating, the elevator to the room stopped working so we couldn't bring our bags up 4 floors of stairs which are outside and not air conditioned. The so called WiFi is run by first generation Linksys routers scattered in the open around the area that couldn't send the signal in the room so each guest is required to go out on the balcony to get a signal. Wired speeds tested at .56 Mbps down and .06 up in our room so doing anything quick was out of the question. They offer a paid WiFi that is supposed to be much improved so I purchased the $40 plan for 10 hours of use. It was worse than the free WiFi, it dropped every 5 seconds, literally and it doesn't improve the wired connection according to the reception desk, only WiFi. We tried to required a cancellation and go to another resort but once you check in you are required to pay for the entire stay, even if you leave, no refunds on unused time! STAY AWAY, DON'T EVEN CONSIDER THIS PLACE! Also, at night there were lots clicking sounds that came from some unknown source that lasted about 2 seconds then would come back in a random people of time which made it impossible to locate and get a good night sleep.

Review:   Worst place I've stayed on my final leg of my Honeymoon. And ghess what, someone from the resort is going to respond to this post and make it seemed liked nothing was that bad. This is our first day here. My wife and I we're checked in ridiculously late because our room wasn't ready, granted we got here early from Moorea. Nevertheless, at least try amd make the guest feel more welcomed. Check and see if we wanted something to drink be more inactive with us. Dont remind is that our room isnt ready. My wife and I, waited for 4 hours and no one even came to ask us or see how we were doing, muchless I'm trying to make a call on my cell phone and I can't. Finally, we get to our room and I'm told to go outside of my room onto the balcony and face the ocean, I'll get reception. Guess what? It still doesn't work. Trying to find my room since we've got here is like trying to find where's Waldo. As a New Yorker, we expected a certain level of service, none of which I've seen yet. New York, it's a tourist haven, so I think I would have an idea as to what a decent level of service should look like, none of which I've experience thus far. A word of advise to any traveler, book elsewhere...I.cant wait to.get back to NY and get outta here. Like I said final leg of our honeymoon, what a disappointment. SMH...

Review:   Not the best, C+ Good beach and views. Hotel is a little run down and has been under construction for a few years with no end in sight. Don't stay here more then 2-3 nights. Food is average, limited menu. Friendly staff but hotel is lacking.

Review:   Staff service exceptional but short comings on room cleanliness and hotel processes. Couldn't get a seat at a table for a drink 30 minutes before lunch kickoff even though there was 90% tables available. Generally pretty good but the customer service helps this one.
