2/10 Poor

Overpriced and bad service
The hotel had horrible internet. It was so bad that I always had to come downstair to work. It was such a mess. The services was bad, they were unhelpful with anything. An hotel as big as this didn't plan for one foreign socket in their room and were not helpful in anyway. It was an overpriced room.

4/10 Fair

When checking out the hotel management refused to include in the bill, the money I paid when I booked online, and only issue me receipt for food consumed. Their excuse is that I paid to Expedia not to them, hence, they are not responsible for issuing the receipt. Meanwhile they gave me room on the basis of the same payment, which I found contradictory. I liked the fact that, they picked me up from the airport and took me back. The room was clean and cozy. If you cannot get a room on 4th or 5th floor go for city view, which is cheaper. You enjoy the ocean view only when you are on higher floors, the view from the lower floors is partially blocked by the roof of the restaurant. The food was slightly off for me, it tastes flat and monotonous, and overtly expensive.
