  1. I feel really bad for Jasmine and what a horrible experience. It’s inexcusable to be judged by her look and skin color. Thanks for sharing the incident in the pod cast.

  2. I feel like I am missing something. A staff member asks for your wife’s room number and this turns into a situation where the hotel needs to comp you multiple nights for a future trip? I have been to that property and it it right next to a few other hotels sharing the same beach, so I am not sure why asking for a room number was such an odd thing to do.

    • Listen again – the reason is in there. The guy chased her down and screamed at her from across the pool because she wasn’t with Shawn at the time and he thought she snuck into the pool. Didn’t ask anyone else in the pool area for the room number etc. and did it in an aggressive way since he assumed she wasn’t a guest because of her skin color.

      • Well you’ve added some details that actually weren’t in the podcast. Regardless, both pools at that property are very small, and I was asked for my room number on some of the times when I used them. I actually preferred that because I wouldn’t want guests from neighboring properties trying to sneak in and using the very limited seating. I stayed for four nights, and none of the staff ever remembered my name or face from one day to the next. Anyways, just my experience.

      • “Excuse me ma’am. I hope you are enjoying your stay. My name is […]. If there’s anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable, please let me know. And, just in case you would like to order anything, may I know your name and room number?”

        If you’re a staff member, that’s how you handle it.

  3. Enjoyed the podcast. Have an upcoming stay at the WA Pedregal myself, would you mind sharing who at the hotel you emailed before your stay? Have a request and cant figure out who the contact is.
