a waste of money-Not a 5* hotel, food was bad.
even though the dining staff was nice, the food was horrible! we as a family ended up eating just the sweet/dessert but it was still bad, not much choices, even though we had 1/2 stay, we ended up eating out & willing to spend in restaurant than to eat there. This place is not a 5* hotel is more like a 3.5*
