4/10 Fair

My husband and I stayed here for 4 out of the 5 nights we had booked. We didn’t stay the 5th night because I was done compromising. We had to stay near where wedding/parties were going on for friends that were getting married. 5 other couples stayed at this hotel as well. The SMELL in the room was so awful - stronger than sulfer, more like raw sewage that was backed up in the bathroom pipes. I don’t know what was going on with the hotel during the time we stayed, but all the couples that I knew who were staying there, said they had a smell in their room too… But none were as bad as ours most likely because our bathroom was in the back of our one bedroom suite… No windows no vent, so air couldn’t really circulate well. We were in such a rush to get to the wedding welcome party we didn’t get a chance to ask to move rooms - I just quickly told the front desk that there’s something going on in the bathroom and it smells horribly can we please get maybe a candle or some thing in the mean time. The bathroom walls also had like black mold on the walls, the toilet seat was falling off- The overall condition of the room was needing some major updating/fixing. They attempted to fix the toilet seat, but nothing was done about the room/smell. I will say the staff and the breakfast they provide is stellar which helped having to deal with the smell. We stayed our last night at the new Curio Hilton Seabreeze that is ocean front on the black sand beaches. Absolutely stunning.

Property was amazing! The staff was incredible and friendly. Especially the three people working the front desk. The Masseuse was the best I’ve had in a while and I regularly need one due to a severe car accident I was in.

Disappointing standard for Small Luxury Hotel
Stay was not upto the standard expected. Oil stains on the bed head. Shower old and broken. Lack of information on the room. Cleanliness was good. Balcony overlooking the caldera was lovely. Disappointing hotel stay overall.
