  • 6,0.Good

    Pros: hotel located on top of steep hill, great view over the ocean, nice balcony, large infinity pool, good restaurant, reasonable prices. Cons: poor service, useless staff, front desk won’t even answer the phone if you call from the room, gym incomplete, no ice machine on any floors (not even provided at the restaurant without a charge). The facility is nice but needs better maintenance (painting in rooms, wall cracks, some areas and tables around the pool, ice dispenser).

    Great view...shuttle service made it easy to get to town during the day and taxis were cheap to get back up the hill. Amazing pool with bar and on site restaurant/bar is nice to have. All rooms had an ocean view too. Very much recommended.

    The hotel was OK, the ocean view is wonderful but the room seems to need more maintenance (the closet doors didn't close). Dinner at the restaurant was a mess, it took like an hour to get our meal.

    Great location! The view is breathtaking! The room is large. All rooms in the hotel are positioned to face the ocean, good design! Negative: 1. Impossible to find. The signs are not on the main road. The signs on the side road, after a few turns, are practically not visible. 2. The room is not equipped with enough storage space, for example, there are no drawers in the nightstands 3. There is no shelving in the bathroom. There is no place for any toiletries, nowhere to put anything. 4. The mattress is very stiff, bad for the back. 5. Very weak and slow internet 6. We were not notified that we have to ask for cleaning when we arrived.

    not as great as it used to be

    This was our second time staying at the property. The first time we loved it and couldn’t wait to return. The second time, not so much. The staff was responsive; however, it seems the maintenance/cleanliness of the property and rooms have diminished. It may be a result of COVID, but it was disappointing enough that I do not plan to return to the property any time soon. The hotel does have a great infinity pool with a beautiful view of the ocean that cannot be beat.

  • 6,0.Good

    Positive - Is staff is very friendly, Angela at the front desk is the best at the front desk, she is very courteous and helpful. Victor in the restaurant area is also great, very knowledgeable of area and helpful. Wifi is fast and reliable. View is terrific. Negative - Not enough quality parking for guest. Only one restaurant at hotel and it is outside, hotel is on top of a hill and it seemed to be very windy everytime we were there and things blow off your table. Pool is not heated and is only warm in late afternoon because it shaded by the hotel, no jacuzzi, pool has a lot of wear on it. Now for the rooms, if a Wyndham corporate executive would stay at this hotel for one night a remodel would start the next day. Door in bathroom does not fully open, so you constantly run it too it. Room has no place to work, no desk no chair, I had to bring a patio chair in from outside to work using the bed as a table. The rooms need a major twenty first century uplift. I booked 2 rooms, the air conditioning worked great in one, the other did not work at all, asked everyday for the air conditioning to be fixed or something to be done, nothing happen. After staying in this area for 4 days I found too many nicer hotels for the same rates or better. If you want to see the view of Tamarando you can drive up the hill to other spots to see. Hotel is not worth paying for only the view. I do not recommend, I will not stay there again. This is the worst Wyndham property I have stayed in.

    I have been here before and it is always a great feeling to be recognized by the staff. They are all great. Specially the F&B staff. I wish I would have got an upgrade and not be stuck in an ADA room all week long. The hotel was not full so the upgrade would have been a nice perk.
