All the buffets and restaurants had decent food. Corona was the only beer they had on tap. Wish I could have gotten a few Dos Equis. Mini bar in room was always stocked good. It was a very humid time to travel. I guess that is why the room had polyester bed sheets in lieu of cotton. Not a big deal .. More>

T.V. needs turned off during the 45 minutes the 2 ladies play the piano/violin in the lounge. Could barely hear them while .. More>

May 25 2014
The hotel, staff, and everyone from Apple were great. But the beds were hard, uncomfortable, and sagged in the middle. If you upgrade the beds, I would return. Otherwise, never again. My back hurt every morning because the springs in the mattress jabbed me in the back all night long. .. More>

My wife and I were on our honeymoon. Our room was supposed to be turned down with chocolates and sparkling wine. I had to mention it three times before anything was done and all they did was put roses on the bed. We were told that we would be eligible for a free upgrade at check in because of our h .. More>
