2/10 Poor

We booked a suite. No busboy so we need to carry our luggage to the 2nd floor across the pool. All televisions in the “suite” were broke, no response from management. Leftover lotions, dirty towels, etc left by previous guests. Management just does not care. Just dont bother coming here.
