I had a poolside room for two nights. The property looks great after the refurb and definitely has a unique look and atmosphere. The pool is excellent, great to swim in despite the slightly chillier time of year. The staff were helpful at all times. I noticed a previous comment about the Wifi - just to say I didn't have a problem with it at all. Terrific location, Hillcrest is close by and it's $20 in a cab to the airport.
