Enjoyable and relaxing.
We stayed in a room with a bay view and that was what I needed. The room was not a 5 star but nice. We flew kites and enjoyed the breakfast and ordered dinner. I guess we didnt want to leave. We are already booked again.

Firefly restaurants needs to improve the service
Great hotel only complaint was the service at the firefly restaurant for dinner. The service was extremely slow and it was quite a challenge to get an attentive waiter. Not sure if they were understaffed? The manager wasn’t very apologetic, nor accommodating. We asked for a waiter serveral times but waiting 20 min before he came.
