Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Disappointed ??with our stay."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The premises was not as clean as our previous visits.we understand the Vivid rules and regulations and of those only a few were followed by the hotel staff. The pool chairs were not sanitized as paperwork indicated.Signs posted no animals in the pool area,there were many in pool area.None of the sign posted rules were being followed and no one cared. We will not return,it is a shame,used to be one of the best motels on the island.

"Service downgraded stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Although the resort was beautiful including the two bedroom condo we rented, the service did not match the beauty nor our expectations for the price we paid. Not only was the front desk staff unfriendly, once confronted with the problem in our room with something I consider a significant issue ( no electricity in one of the bedrooms), the attitude was very nonchalant and complacent as if I shouldn't be so picky. Perhaps my complaint about the dust in the room might be considered “picky” but add the lack of electricity and the staff's attitude and price we paid and this created a poor experience overall. Needless to say, when visiting SPI again, we will find somewhere else to stay.

"Nice weekend getaway."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Clean, good parking and good a/c! Elevators are limited so that can take forever. They definitely need more elevators.

"Okay but needs improvement."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We have stayed at the pearl for many years, so much so that we have seen the bell hop Domingo for years. He's great! The hotel is now very dated and has WiFi that does not work. Me and my family spent more time trying to get on the WiFi than it was worth. We exceeded our phone data plan due to no WiFi. All modern hotels and motels have WiFi. the pool and swim up pool are nice and the beach access is great. No USB ports.. old tv. old outlets.. the rooms need a serious upgrade.

"Very Disappointing"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Room temperature was not well controlled. Room was humid and damp. Pillows were very worn and too soft. Smoke detector beeped throughout our stay despite four requests to fix it.
