No room cleaning. I had to ask for new towels every time I needed them during my 1 week stay! And change my own bed sheets. May as well have stayed at Air BnB. No new water bottles. Late checkout was 11am!

4/10 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The property's only redeeming feature is that it is close to the marina/beach. Check-in was 30 seconds without any explanation of the hotel or what services were available. We felt like we were inconveniencing the front desk by checking in. Not exactly the hospitality we were looking for coming from NYC. Also, they don't clean the rooms daily? We heard from the staff that it's because they laid off cleaners during COVID and the hotel wants to maintain the margins on the room fees by only cleaning after each guest leaves. Not what you want on a vacation to Hawaii. 5 days of no bed changes, no trash being emptied. We finally had to bring it out ourselves I felt like we were at a condo. Had to call each day for new towels. Also, the place is dated, paint peeling near all the terraces. Would never go back and would not recommend any friends or family to visit.

If you want a decent hotel, close to the malls and dont mind the protesting that happens twice a week on the pool from neighboring resorts, this is the place. Its a cheap hotel, decent views, but the gold mine is cinnamons. Went every single morning

There was some kind of protest going on, the front desk told me they would return my resort fees. I was told this by two people. The resort fees were not returned. Kind of lame to offer to refund money then not carry out with that offer at all.
