We started out our vacation with 4 days at this hotel and it was quite nice!
The room was clean and spacious and the beds were quite comfortable. Directly underneath our room was a big A-C-engine but we didn't have any problems with noise during the night or anything, it did give away a bit of heat though.
Excersise facilities were extremely basic but sufficient. Some dumbbells some running machines and other weight-lifting machines. 2 TV's in there which we had full control of, and we were also able to control the A/C and music volume. Nice!
Pool is great! Not very deep on the deepest, but then again, it shouldn't be. A huge section of it is extremely shallow which is great for kids. Outside jaccuzi was spacious and warm and the poolside bar was OK. Lying by the pool was extremely relaxing and nice.
On the negative side; we ordered some food at the poolside bar and the waitress recommended ordering the hamburgers well done. Not very reassuring. The hotel restaurant breakfast is also quite expensive for the quality.
There is a Walmart nearby (just over the bridge) but there is quite a way to the closest restaurants. Fortunately, the hotel's taxi-guy isn't very expensive.
Staff was quite helpful, but some of them really could use a smiling-course :)
