Amazing Hotel
Amazing hotel, the room was spacious and quite. The incredible thing is there is no check out / check in time at this hotel. The breakfast was decent (flavor wise), but room service, lunch, dinners 5 stars!!! Our room had a personal pool that kept us from going to the community pool. Great place to relax and disconnect; we hope to visit again!
