I read all the warnings about this hotel and was perfectly prepared for crowds/chaos, with kids running around. The warnings were all true, but I’m okay with that since I have two kids myself. I booked the Ali tower for the “premium” experience and the private pool, hoping that’ll make my stay more enjoyable. However, this is only my second night here and I cannot wait to move to a different hotel.
First off, there is a loud garbage truck that comes around 5am, then again an hour or so after. It’s so loud that I can’t imagine anyone being able to sleep through it (I’m a sound sleeper). Second, the thermostat in the room doesn’t work. When I called the front desk, they said I can only turn off the A/C if I’m too cold. I cannot make it a few degrees warmer. So I have to choose between freezing or sweating while sleeping. Lastly, all the pools feel very dirty. The bottom of the pools feel slimy and grainy. Perhaps some of it is the sand that people bring in from the beach, but not sure why it feels so slimy.
I’m counting down to two more nights so I can get out of here!More
