We were to stay 5 nights and checked out after the first night. I was on the phone for hours to get a refund for four nights stay but still waiting on the resort fee to be refunded. The room either had NO water or it was COLD water. No one answers at the front desk. We moved over to the Sheraton as soon as we could.
