Pool at WTR bar.

Room didn’t meet expectation. The smoke alarm beeped the entire night. We told the receptionist, she provided us with a battery and stated that there wasn’t anyone in maintenance until the next day to trouble shoot the problem. We replaced the battery and the alarm continued to beep. The balcony door was hard to slide open/close. The a/c unit wasn’t cold at all, it kept the room warm.

Both days we were there we left our room early in the morning and arrived back to our room about 3-4 pm only to find that the room had not been cleaned yet making taking an afternoon rest impossible. There were never any towels at the pool

Housekeeping. Much improvement needed here. Perhaps there is some strain on housekeeping as the hotel appears to still be undergoing renovations, but more attention to detail, consistency and communication is needed. Eg: when first entering my room water could be seen leaking from fridge. It was cleaned right away, but curious as to how it wasnt spotted when being cleaned. Also, discovered staining on sheets, a hair, and no mattress pad. Brought this to attention of desk staff then went out. Came back a few hours later, but issues were not fixed and at no point was another room offered. The staff put in request to have issues expedited. I remained in lobby for an hour, but no updates. I finally asked about the changes, but housekeeping had failed to note anything in their system. When hk person was called down to front desk she seemed irritated since room had been fixed for a while, though noone was alerted to that fact. But again, all were very pleasant w/ extra kudos to Edgar, Claudette, and Angelica. A couple points to Travelzoo: pool is very small w/ outdated lounge chairs. On-site restaurant also a bit outdated and buffet “tired”. Hotel appears to be pitching itself towards a younger party crowd. It IS close/within walking distance of a small beach and the shuttle service (free) not only travels to/from the airport, but other locations - nice local mall, two nearby casual restaurants, downtown.

The hotel had extremely loud music playing at the pool and it went on until 11pm Friday and 12pm Saturday. It was so loud we could hear it through an air conditioner fan on level high, the TV, the bathroom fan and shower turned on. No one was even at the the pool half the time. Very obnoxious. The hotel was also old in some parts. Clearly had been recently fixed up but not everything was nice and new.
