Well stocked fridge, robes and slippers. Love the pool, hot tun and especially the sauna. First class place all the way. Close to almost everything...

I found the decor rather bland but my daughter called it relaxing. Different strokes. Both of us agreed our double beds were comfy and the room stayed pleasantly quiet...
