How to Get There
The staff is very rude to say the least!
Dirty, Black mold in shower.
King size bed is two twins pushed together with a hump in the middle.
Were scheduled for 5 days and left day 2 and were told no money would be returned.
We were happily surprised to find that we had been upgraded and enjoyed a spacious and well appointed room (with hummingbirds flying around our patio). Beautiful grounds and pool area. Would have like options other than beer or wine at happy hour, as I drink neither. The private beach (Moomba) is small but relaxing. Would not describe it as “across the street” or “a five minute walk” however. We were made to feel welcome and enjoyed our week.
We stayed in the Spazio oceanfront suite for 4 days. Overall it was amazing, the view is spectacular. That being said there are a few things that need some general up keep/ maintenance. The bathroom door barely closes because the tiles have heaved and shifted. You can't use the full body shower head as the doors are outside the tub and it pours out all of the water making a huge mess. Many cracked floor tiles. One of the faucets is loose and about to fall out. The soaker tub is mostly for show because there isn't enough warm water to even get close to using it. Don't get me wrong, the accommodations were still amazing, but it needs some up keep that isn't being done. It was really nice having a mini fridge in the room. The private lounge chairs are awesome for taking in the incredible sunsets.
First, the good stuff: The hotel is truly lovely — the decor in the lobby, the rooms, the pool area. It’s also in a central location that’s only 6 minute drive to Otrabunda and the floating bridge.
Now, the disappointing stuff:
1. They are NOT located steps away from the beach and it is not a 5-minute walk. You have to drive or take their shuttle bus to the beach. If you walk, you’re walking down a road that has no shade and no sidewalk. The beach itself, Moomba, is rocky and very small -- so rocky that you need to have shoes on in order to swim. We went to that beach once and never went back since there are much better beaches elsewhere.
2. I was truly disgusted by what looked like dog poop all over the pool area. Well, turns out it was iguana poop! When we complained about it, they knew about the iguana poop piles, and said maintenance would come. Apparently it happens all the time in this one area by the pool. But if you are of this disgusting problem, why wouldn’t you be more on top of cleaning it? One afternoon, we saw a plate (yes, a plate!) piled with poop -- sitting like that on the table for hours! Why wouldn’t you designate someone to clear that area every hour or more? Or redesign it to be a garden where the droppings could go unnoticed? They seemed completely blasé about the fact that guests had to delicately walk around poop to get anywhere — and that is NOT okay.
3. At first I was impressed by the fact that they seemed to be LGBTQ friendly. I am straight, but from New York, so always appreciate inclusivity. But, after being there for about a day, you start to realize that they aren’t inclusive at all; they cater to men only (mainly gay men), and exclude everyone else! For example, there is a sign outside of the pool restrooms that says, “All genders can use this restroom.” I entered, and went into the only stall to do my business. When I came out of the stall, I was taken aback to see a half-naked man peeing in a urinal right next to me, with no wall or barrier whatsoever! It’s very off-putting, and I did not like seeing some guy’s junk without warning. I have no problem peeing next to a man, trust me. But I don’t need to see it! If you want all genders to use a bathroom, then you need to make them all stalls! At the very least, put a visual barrier between the stalls and urinals.
Another example is when my 80-year-old parents and I went to the spa — but were stopped at the door by a sign that said MEN ONLY after 6pm. We went back the next day (before 6pm, of course), and discovered that clothing is optional at all times — and NO CLOTHES ALLOWED at all in the jacuzzi! What the heck? No clothes allowed in a co-ed jacuzzi? What kind of skanky place is this, where only men can go at night, naked????? (That's rhetorical. I know what's going on....) It was also totally dark inside the spa, making it dangerous on slippery floors and making it feel like a throwback to a 1980s bathhouse. They shouldn't call it a spa: They should rent it out by the hour, like a cheap motel does, because that's obviously the clientele they're trying to attract.
If this hotel really wanted to be open and accepting to everyone, they’d make everything available to ALL PEOPLE AT ALL TIMES at all times. As a woman, I was incredibly offended that I couldn’t enter the spa when I wanted to -- and if I did go at the correct time of day, I risked seeing shady encounters in dark corners. My mom and I felt totally unwelcome... and so did my dad, by the way, since he's not gay. It really feels like they just want gay men there and no one else. I just can’t understand why this hotel would exclude women like this? I can safely say that most women would not put up with this treatment, especially when paying quite a price to stay there.
So, my words of advice are: If you’re a gay man, go here if you want! If you identify as anything else, avoid this place at all costs simply so that you don’t feel unwelcome everywhere you go.
We have spent 9 days in Floris suite hotel and we definitely enjoyed it.
The studio rooms are the cheapest available version and therefore not the most charming ones. But they are ok for people that enjoy the outside more then the inside.
The bed was quite comfortable. The pillows not so much, unfortunately.
The bathroom a bit small. Needs a serious update. But again if you do not have a high expectations - it will not be a big problem.
In general - we had a very comfortable and pleasant stay.
The charm of Floris lays in its jungle garden around the open structure buildings and the swimming pool. Coconut trees make sure you feel the Caribbean vibes. Hummingbirds fly among the beautiful green plants and flowers.
The hotel employees/ reception seem distant at first but they are very friendly and helpful.
Beach: hotel is not directly at the beach but just a minute drive away. The beach club is pleasant. You must pay extra for the parasol ( 17 USD)
We would stay at Floris and recommend it to the others. We would only choose another room.
Tip: rent a car and explore beautiful beaches towards the Westpunt. Almost all of them are great for snorkelling ;-)
Tips for Floris:
the studios could use more charm to lift up to the other rooms. Why not reflect your beautiful garden on the walls? Few pictures/ paintings and colourful pillows here and there would make a world of difference ;-)
The cleaning must be improved. But with the climate change - think about the environment- the guest do not need fresh towels every day. Other hotels place a note for guests to ask for fresh towels once they need it.
Mosquitos also love your garden. The rooms could use some candles or other protection against insects.
Last remark: Location - Piscadera bay is a small bay with 3 restaurants: Pirates bay, Visserij and Tomatos.
Small beach for the evening cocktail is very pleasant.
