This was just an overnight stay before flying out. The shuttle driver was good. They do seem to be working on fixing up the hotel. Our shower/tub needed to be redone as there were mold spots. Maybe just needs some new caulking. It was enough for our needs for that night.

I landed a 1st floor room that faced the indoor lobby that leads to the pool. That lobby is definitely outdated but in typical Ramada style. It... More
