Based on the name we expected a ittle bit more from the resort hotel.
Based on the reviews and the noise complaints we booked a garden view room, but we got a room viewing the road. I didn't really see a garden... so I am not sure if the garden rooms are located on that side or that we were not sleeping in a garden room. And it can indeed be noisy, but the small bed kept us more awake at night.
The bed was small and you could feel every movement of the other person. Very uncomfortable if a small bed is not your preference. Also we could only get two access code for the wifi. We asked for more for other devices, but that was refused.
The small kitchen, big bathroom and the complimentary bottle of wine and newspaper were nice. The pool area looked nice as well, but we didn't use it.
Loation is great, near the marina and via the parking lot access towards the town center.
