8/10 Very Good

Airport shuttles never arrived.
Everything about the hotel was wonderful except arranging airport shuttles. Twice they were ordered ahead of time and twice they never showed up and our entire group of 16 had to scramble for an alternative. We probably will not use this property again because of this issue and that there is an expense to use an airport shuttle if it does show up.
