Poor2.0
Vacation Ruined and No Refund or Discount Offered
I checked into the hotel and the main entrance was closed. I entered into an area full of boarded up and padlocked shops. The lobby of the hotel was closed as well as the main entrance. There was a side desk with a sliver of the old ballroom and lobby I remember being open. I arrived on a Thursday and left on a Sunday. Nothing was open and available. The hot water was intermittent. I would estimate that 3/4 of the hotel was closed down. There was no room service available and only one pool was open. Construction was going on everywhere and it was a complete eyesore and vacation ruiner. While relaxing at the pool when I could not hear construction, I looked up and the top floors had mattresses leaning against the windows of the rooms, a complete eyesore. This vacation was a complete disaster and absolutely ruined my vacation. No restaurants were open, just a small pizzeria style restaurant with alcohol. The hotel should not have been reopened until it was complete. I had to walk to the Embassy Suites and Intercontinental to get food and have drinks. The hotel also refused to refund me any money, which is a completely disgusting business practice. The hotel website stated that the hotel was being remodeled and some amenities may not be available. The website should have stated that more than 3/4 of the hotel was closed and no amenities besides one pool and the fitness center were available.

Fair4.0
under construction
Hotel is not fully functioning. I've stayed here in the past and loved it. The only pool open was the worst one and the lobby / hotel bar (which is usually awesome) was not open. It was very deceiving how they listed the place. Construction everywhere as well. I would have stayed somewhere else if I knew

Ran out of beach amenity.
My room was right be the elevator , so every time someone used it during the night I would wake up from the bell/chime. We went down to the beach around 3 o'clock and they didn't have any chairs left and they also ran out of large umbrellas, and that's a safety hazard, people stay out there all day long and we need protection from the sun ,they also didn't have any little tables left, I couldn't even get a drink because I had no where to set it down, I did't want to hold it the hole time. Some of the mix drinks don't come in the correct glass making the drink a lot smaller.

Mediocre
The staff was just not very friendly. There were also construction workers right outside my window which wasn’t nice.
