  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Service was TERRIBLE at the pool bar - we had no servers that would come to us and the bar tender was annoyed we kept bothering him for drinks at the bar. We watched another couple wait an hour and a half after ordering their dinner and when it never came, they asked another server who acknowledged the forgetfulness of her co-worker and put in the order again for them. The person who checked us in and the older woman who served our lunch were FANTASTIC but the evening was very disappointing with the poor service. Also a band played loud broken portions of songs (seemed like a band practice) in the hotel lobby so loud you couldn't hear the very talented DJ girl at the pool bar so it was a very chaotic environment. Not relaxing. Will not return.
