This hotel was horrible. The price was cheap, however you would not want to stay even if it were free. The rooms smelled like mold and sewage and the hotel did not have hot water. They are painting and remodeling, however you cannot mask mold. This hotel was my last resort because we missed our plane. I slept in the...

Good Evening, We would like to start off by apologizing for the inconvenience. What happened to you has been the first case we have ever encountered where the reservation that was charged was not placed into our paid reservation filing system.

I was staying a few extra days by myself and needed a safe location and didn't want my overnight stay to cost more than the flight discount I was saving! Malibu was it! I arrived early and the gentleman checked me in and said I was welcome to leave my bag and hang by the pool until something was ready....

Unfortunately we didn't make our plane home & had checked out of the Divi All Inclusive (which was fabulous) which left us with few inexpensive room choices. This hotel was disappointing for $100 a night. Bugs in the room, rude written messages about not turning the ac too low, the shower ran luke warm water at best, horrible blow dryer,...

Great service and room for only $75/night. Can't beat that. Clean room and facilities. Within walking distance to Nikky beach and Downtown. Hotel management gave us great advice on where to go snorkling and even how to get there (public bus system; very helpful service) Definately will go back on my next trip to the island.

I stay in Four Days at Hotel Malibu. I seemed fairly quiet, nice, familiar and especially economical compared to other hotels in the High Rise Hotel. The care is very good.

A one night stay at this hotel was the worst experience we had on an otherwise perfect vacation. First, the hotel claims it has double bed rooms which in the US usually means 2 beds that can each let 2 people sleep in. At Malibu double bed means one queen sized bed that can sleep 2.
