Loud Spanish blasting for hours and it doesn't seem to matter to the people here. Breakfast has only pastries ( no eggs, no meats, only carbo hydrates) Hot water is very limited. You might need to microwave some warm water.

Our service team generally does a great job making sure all facilities and room are cleaned and maintained well. So...

The room itself was clean, but it seemed they didn't pay much attention to cleaning the tub, thank goodness for flip-flops! The walls must be thin, we could hear our neighbor's TV and we were just a little uncomfortable. Also our bed squeaked a lot.

We wish you had mentioned this to our team, we would have switched your rooms, which should have corrected most of these(specifically bathroom cleanliness) issues. Our room service team generally does a great job when it comes to preparing the room for guests, so it is strange that this had...
