Before we booked the Cardoza we did our homework like always and were very disgusted with what we found. We found the rating of this hotel a Luxury hotel rating and being owned by Gloria Estefan, you would expect a decent hotel.
This was our pre-cruise hotel and we checked it to find smelly incense buring at the front reception, are the owners &^*%%... like come on, people are allergic to incense so not sure as to why they think there is nothing wrong with burning incense. The carpet in the hallways dirty and very run down.
The bathroom tub was so gross, run down dirty and felt grossed out showering in there, the tile on the bathroom floor run down and gross. The wall as so thin that you can hear a pin drop. Then we tried to go to sleep and the bed was the worst you can imagine and lumpy as we both had sore back, had to ask for 2 conforters, just to get some sleep at least. Then we get a lady of the night next door ( dont want to disgust you with the details) but we witnessed several different men in and out of the hotel and I tried to use cotton swabs in my ears to get some sleep but that didnt even work, this hotel caters to ladies of the night and that obvious. We tried to call around to see if we can moved hotel and no such luck. We had dinner at the cardoza hotel and the waiter suggested 2 for 1 drinks, we assumed it would be the norm, and when we got the bill it was 18.00 per drink... rip off!!!!! and all 3 nights we could not sleep as the girl next door was busy at work and making so much noise..... we even saw a john ask a hotel worker where the back door was and he was told....and i dont know how many times i knocked on the wall to tell the girl to shut up.... RUN DONT WALK FROM THIS HOTEL.
