Stayed here with our kids for a couple nights and found the positive reviews to be accurate. From the moment of check-in it was clear the staff is trained to be friendly and welcoming! The girl at check-in was also upfront about the fact that they had several youth teams staying at the hotel during our visit and that staff patrols the hall every 15 minutes but we should also not hesitate to let them know should there be a concern about noise. We did not have any problems. All the staff we encountered from cleaning staff, kitchen staff, to the desk staff was always very courteous and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast is what you would expect from any hotel of this caliber and staff was always on stand-by.
My only complaints during our visit is that the pool was a bit small. We have a family of five and felt we were crowding the other two who were at the pool at the time. Water was chilly too. Also the TV did not work well. It was very slow to respond to the remote, and the interactive channel guide was not properly set up making it impossible find specific channels and difficult even to just channel surf.
Otherwise, we had a very pleasant stay and would certainly stay here again!
