Like- location is walkable to most frequently visited tourist areas. Restaurant/bar staff were great except for one, who was very rude (sorry wasn't able to get her name but she was a young mid 25-30s local woman). Dislike - room was directly above the hotel delivery area so it was very noisy in the early mornings so we couldn't sleep passed 6:30 the entire stay. Although the hotel staff asked how was our first night in the hotel when we brought it up they were not willing to change the room. When we asked for a different room they just said "no" with no explanation. Only one restaurant in the hotel; pool and lagoon areas are too small and constantly packed.
