It's a dive! Thumbs down!
I was not impressed! The shower leaked all over the floor making it almost impossible not to fall and get hurt! Not worth the money!

Very Good8.0
Fine for the price and location
Good location and priced fairly. Decent restaurant & bar. Service very good, except it took 4 days and many requests to fix toilet in room. Rooms facing pool are noisy when events are held in that area.
