A fantastic weekend with my eleven-year-old daughter. Needed a break from an intense four weeks of work (international adoption) and found the pools and staff incredible!
Perfect combination of relaxation, daily pool activities, which my daughter loved and I watched carefully from the adjoining pool, and proximity to her favorite location: the hot dog station.
Front desk, especially Ronny, was lovely. Fluent in English, compared to my mas o menos espanol, he welcomed us each day as if we were family. He greeted me in English and my daughter in Spanish, and really went out of his way for us.
Location is far removed from the city, which was perfect for our three-day get-away. Ventured to the city using the hotel shuttle (free) and taxied back. About $16 US.
Food was average. Nothing great about beverages. Bartenders and wait staff were very kind.
Room was great. First visit for our daughter to a hotel. It was beautiful and comfy and so memorable for us. We'll go back with hubby and older daughter, for sure!
