STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!!!
There are so many other options that are far better than this one. It's distance from the attractions are the least of your problems. The "staff" that others refer to are two people... one good one bad. Hopefully you wont get stuck with the co-owner who is a mess. She was spacy and forgot to put us down for dinner one night- and so we never ate! the rooms musty and damp and over run with aunts (both our rooms we made a change halfway in to our stay.)
We wanted to go on additional tours - tours that are from the hotel fishing horseback riding but we couldn't find any staff members to book the trip. It really was the most horrible place to stay and try to relax. My one dinner i ate so salty I couldn't swallow it... The pool filter not working so a refeshing dip was with tons of dead bugs and lawn clippings! AGAIN there are so many new options in the area I'd skip this one at all costs!
aND I WOULDN'T HAVE WRITTEN THIS IF I HAD GOTTEN A SIMPLE SORRY FROM THE MANAGEMENT INSTEAD THEY BLEW MY COMPLAINTS OFF!
