Koi ponds around the property are beautiful. Room was terrible. Plaster falling from ceiling, wallpaper peeling, sliding glass door to 2nd floor balcony didn’t lock but was also near impossible to open, mattress had an obvious concave, stains on carpet all over the room, …

Great location, and beautiful ambience. I would be hesitant to book through Expedia as during my stay, the resort had to turn off their water supply (no shower, no running water). The hotel had our contact information on file, but we did not get any notice. Throughout the day we had to keep calling asking when the water will be back on. We were told that because we booked through a third party, Expedia was told, not us. Expedia never reached out to us. After a couple of days, I called the hotel to ask for compensation for this inconvenience as I hadn't received any compensation. They told me that Expedia had been proactive and called the hotel asking for permission to refund 1 night stay. I was shocked to hear this as Expedia never reached out to me nor refunded me. So I then had to talk to a customer service representative at Expedia who kept repeating they could not see any history of this phone call between the hotel and Expedia (the hotel told me they have record of this phone call). They did eventually process the refund, but only because I reached out. This might be expected behavior of Expedia, and because of that, I would caution.

We travel a lot and stay at many hotels. No hotel as Catamaran charges parking fees for guest. ($38/day, We paid $152 for two rooms and two days) That's ridiculous. The tower property were very old. Peerled wall papers, Bathtub with broken tiles, Very hard operate tub faucet. We paid the prices for two ocean view rooms. One room is ok. One room no ocean view. Very disapointed!
