Nice Clean room
This was a very nice, clean hotel. We just got a standard king room. There was no microwave which was surprising and a little disappointing. Pool area was beautiful.

8/10 Very good

Had an amazing time, Only 2 things that were wrong is that i had an email stating that we had been approved for late check out and yet it was no where in the system that we were allowed to do that and then there was a room service guy that walked in on my husband who was NAKED in the room because he couldn't wait the 2 extra seconds it would have taken for my husband to put shorts on and go to the door to tell the SECOND house keeper that we didn't want service because we were doing late check out at 1pm. Other then that our stay was amazing and will be coming back.
