Had a Family Wedding at the hotel, and went for the higher class rooms, cute large, balcony rooms, which were very reasonable for this hotel as well as the perks, fantastic breakfasts, great swimming pool, and also complimentary pick up at airport both arrival and departure. There was also free wifi with two desks,computers.
