My girlfriend and i stayed here two tuesdays this month. The receptionists are exceptional. The rooms are large, airy, with everything we could need. Multi jet showers, lots of towels and toiletries. The bar is lovely and the ambiance around this hotel is just right. Looking forward to our next stay. Shamie and Sharon.
