Horrible staff. Room smelled like smoke, moved to a new room that still stunk. Manager was drinking a beer.
Room was smelly when we walked in. Bathroom was very unclean. The shower had hairs on ceiling and wall. Toilet had stains, bed sheets had black stains everything was VERY UNCLEAN.
Phone in the room did not work. Coffee supposedly available, but not always. I understood there was a restaurant, and there was nothing very close. Very expensive. No shuttle to airport or to the city. Average breakfast
Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was quite good with plenty of food.
Shower drain was backed up. Had to wait at least 10 minutes to be helped at front desk to check out — no one there.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast wasn't anything special but it was all hot and fresh and had decent flavor. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and over all we really enjoyed our stay.
Despite having adult only hours after 10pm the pool was filled with children when we went down around 10:30 to swim. The windows in the room were bolted shut so you couldn't get any fresh air and the air conditioner was off when we arrived and the room smelled musty before we turned it on.
