When I initially arrived there was a problem at check in, Va'a the guest service representative checked us in to the wrong room and repeatedly walked away without excusing herself or an explanation as to why it took an hour to check into our room.
Once we were checked in she nor anyone at the front desk apologized for the hour long check in (or an explanation). Once we arrived to our room 1135 there was toothpaste on the bathroom counter, the sink looked as it was just used, the toilet has a leak behind it there was water on the floor, visible mold on the ceiling, the shower head was essentially unusable. I requested late checkout which was granted from the front desk only to be disturbed by housekeeping yelling through the door asking when I was leaving.
