The rooms are clean, spacious, and overlook the swimming pool and the nearby lake. We also loved to eat there. Their food is delicious and inexpensive. The staff is delightful and we always feel, every time... More

Large rooms overlooking the lake. Good buffet b&d. Reasonable prices. A quiet place far away from noisy traffic. Yet only half an hour away from downtown Alexandria. Some African decor. The garden is green and beautiful.

It's a nice peaceful hotel, largely because of the ocean theme - the hotel and the rooms are decorated The restaurant in the lobby is nice for breakfast, we didn't eat anything else there - staff are very friendly and the service is quick. In general, all the staff were very friendly actually. There's no hotel self-parking, but there's a... More
