    Reasonably priced. Suite was very clean, comfortable, and tropical. Staff was super gracious and helpful. No ice machine, though. No daily maid service. No big deal. We really enjoyed our stay and would come back in a heartbeat.

    Nice place to stay. Needs some updating of the bathroom and expensive. No maid service which is fine. Driveway to back parking lot needs work. Big potholes. Grounds are very tropical. Flowers, trees, quaint places to sit and a fountain.
