I read up all other reviews before I booked - heck what a disappointment! These people must have no idea what a good hotel must be like, as my family and I didn't agree at all. I had booked in for 4 weeks accommodation which was broken into 2 as we went to Vegas after the first week. On my return I was booked on the 2nd floor that had no elevator access to it. I wasn't there for a weekend trip but from Australia for a vacation and lots of shopping, having lots of suitcases to carry up and down, in this day and age who has rooms with no elevator access? The staff were not helpful at all.
The best part is that in the brochure the pool looks like a proper pool. What a joke!! My kids complained for the entire week we stayed there they wanted to swim but wouldn't go in that pool, it was so tiny. My kids hated this hotel so much. We checked out and into another hotel, wow what a difference! There s no comparison. What a disappointment, never again!!!!
