            Me and my friend arrived at 430pm to check in our room. We are exhausted and were going to attend a wedding later, hence would like to change in the hotel. However, we been told by the staff that the room is still unavailable and need us to wait for another 45 minutes. After few minutes of argument, the staff come up with a room at level 1. I had booked a room with sea view, and at level 1, U barely could see the sea, the tree and pool had covered the sea view. Other that that, in the morning, there was a staff pass by our window which shocked us.
