Dreadful tourist hotel with one good thing going for it - location. At check in the bellman (4!) were standing inside talking to one another while I had to pull my luggage out of the taxi. Check in and check out were unnecessarily slow. The carpet in my room was dirty and full of burn marks, the shower was visibly full with k mold/mildew, the towel texture was thin, rough and had hiked in it. It was a terrible experience.

    Carnaval Stay

    Service was very good everyone was very friendly. Rooms were not clean. First room we had black mold in the bathroom and the towels were dirty. We got moved to another room. That room the curtains had mold on them and we found ants in the bed. For how much we were paying each night it’s not acceptable. Liked having the valet for the car and everyone at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Good location right on the beach close to places to eat and bars as well.

    Although we did not use the Pool on the Roof, having it available is a unique feature, while also being able to dine out on the roof deck. - We were allowed to check in a couple hours early as our room was available. - We found the food to be quite good, regardless if it was delivered to our room or on the 30'th floor Restaurant.
