Look somewhere else
They always say to not go in with expectations but when you spend a pretty penny you expect to have at least a better experience compared to the next. I’ll start with the staff - while on the beach the attendant promised to bring me a towel and umbrella. I waited over an hour waiting and instead left because he rather attend the girls in a thong bathing suit. The drinks at the bar were all sugary and watered down. (Major headache) The disconnect between the hotel and in house restaurant Meat Market is ridiculous. They want to be treated separate but yet you only have the option to call the hotel to make a res. The overall new design of the hotel is poor. The dark lighting and decor is hideous and makes it impossible to see when you’re coming in from bright sunlight.

Great venue
We had a great time regardless, but the service was very slow and our room wasn’t cleaned once.

Bad attitude at the front desk
Checking in and checking out were annoying. The female only staff were just unfriendly and rude.

Will never go back to this Hotel
Bad! Not even worth close to over $950 a day even for the after Christmas year-end. Too many issues with this reservation. 1. I've reserved Ocean View(Cabana) but when I arrived, they told me the reservations is only for Pool View/Regular Room. (this could be Hotels.com's issue, incorrect reservation.) 2. Hotel staffs were 50% nice and 50% rude. 3. Water dripping from toilet room sealing. Dirty water dripped down from sealing while sitting on toilet bowl. every time room above used the toilet, water came dripping down. they didn't fix it until following day. They said they will give us $13/person(we had 4 people.) breakfast free for the remainder of the stay, which was 4 more days. at the checkout, the machine they said was out of service(?) so, they couldn't give me the statement to check charges or credit before we leave. when I got back I've received the statement by email and saw only credit of $52 for the entire stay. make wrong reservation, too expensive, rude staffs, bad condition room, staff don't keep their promises. Only good thing was the food at Cana was good. But, I would never go back to the same hotel ever again.
