My husband and I have stayed at the Plaza at least 10 times over the years and this was without a doubt our most disappointing stay ever. As previous reviewers have noted, the Plaza is undergoing much needed renovations, but the renovations are moving at a snail's pace. We were there spring 2008 and they seem to be working on the same 5 rooms they were working on then. We requested a one bedroom villa but were told upon check in that none were available and we were "upgraded" to a 2 bedroom villa. Sounds good, right? OK, it was nice having the extra room, but the room itself was an absolute dump. Both tubs were cracked, rust stains from the drains, moldy grout, thick calcification on the sink faucet head, no stopper for the bathroom sinks. The view was of the side of a ship because the 2BR is on the ground level while the 1BR is upstairs. The closet doors were so eroded you could barely open them, and the room was infested with ROACHES. My husband killed at least 10 while we were there. The dive shop is top notch and have always been responsive and helpful, as was the car rental. But they should have begun renovations 10 years ago. The picture on the web site is misleading as it shows the renovated rooms, not the old crummy ones. I hate this because this was always our favorite place to go on vacation but I am NOT staying in a roach motel.
