It has a couple of... More

The staff here could not be nicer or more helpful. Very kind and friendly and willing to help right away from house keeping problems to sightseeing... More

Booked last minute and was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Room looked far better than in the pictures, clean and comfortable. Pool great. Only downside was room not ready till 6pm but staff and manager very apologetic.
